Los Angeles death metal titans Abysmal Dawn will be releasing a new EP “Nightmare Frontier” on February 4 via Season of Mist. During the height of the worldwide apocalyptic dystopia of 2020, the band persevered and released one of the greatest albums of their career, “Phylogenesis.” Now, they pick up where they left off, unleashing a solid four-song EP. Watch a lyric video for the polished re-recording of the band’s song, “Blacken The Sky” below.

Regarding the decision to re-record the track, ABSYMAL DAWN guitarist/vocalist Charles Elliott explains, “When it came time to record this EP we started discussing re-recording an older track. After a bit of back and forth, we all ended up voting for ‘Blacken The Sky.’ That was actually the first song I ever wrote for Abysmal Dawn, and it seemed sort of fitting to update it a little for a new era. Enjoy!”

Pre-orders for “Nightmare Frontier” are now live here, as well as from their official Abysmal Dawn online store here. The single and EP can be pre-saved across all streaming services here.
