Abysmal Dawn

ABYSMAL DAWN plays aggressive modern death that combines some of the best elements of both black and thrash metal. The band seamlessly blends the catchiness and technicality of early 90's American death, with ample doses of atmosphere, melody and the brutality of their contemporaries. Pain ridden death growls, complex drumming and soaring leads all help make F rom Ashes one of the strongest debuts within the extreme music genre in a long time!

ABYSMAL DAWN plays aggressive modern death that combines some of the best elements of both black and thrash metal. The band seamlessly blends the catchiness and technicality of early 90's American death, with ample doses of atmosphere, melody and the brutality of their contemporaries. Pain ridden death growls, complex drumming and soaring leads all help make F rom Ashes one of the strongest debuts within the extreme music genre in a long time!

Hailing from Los Angeles CA, ABYSMAL DAWN was formed in late-2003 after Charles Elliott's (guitars/vocals) departure from the long running local blackened/death act Rise. Soon after, Elliott sought to start an entirely new project with his former Inhuman Visions band mate, Jamie Boulanger (guitars). The pair recruited Terry Barajas (drums) and frantically began writing material that would soon invoke mass hysteria throughout the metal community.

The bands first three song demo was unleashed upon mankind in October of 2004. It garnered the band critical praise within the underground metal press circuit, as well as earning them some high profile gigs. 2005 saw the band playing alongside some of metal's most elite acts such as Exodus, 3 Inches of Blood, Krisiun, Incantation, Hate Eternal, Into Eternity, Exhumed, Aborted, Disgorge, Impaled, Crisis and Decrepit Birth, to name a few. Metal audiences clamored to see the bands energetic stage shows, and demand for a proper recording soon became overwhelming.

In November of 2005, ABYSAML DAWN entered Shiva Industries in Santa Ana to start work on their debut release entitled From Ashes . For the recording, the band enlisted the help of longtime friend and live bassist, Mike Bear (Ex-Prototype, Artisan) to fill in the bottom end. The result is nine songs that pay special attention to not only brutality, but song craft as well. Engineered by John Haddad (Eyes of Fire, Phobia) and graced with the stunning artwork of Par Olofsson (Deeds of Flesh, Psycroptic), From Ashes assaults your senses and tears at the very fabric of your soul.

Make no mistake, ABYSMAL DAWN is soon to be a household name among the metal community. Surely a force to be reckoned with, ABYSMAL DAWN have risen From Ashes only to conquer us all.

ABYSMAL DAWN is now. Charles Elliott (guitars/vocals. Jamie Boulanger (guitars. Terry Barajas (drums) Mike Cosio (bass)
