Some of you might be familiar with Abyssus as we released their compilation album titled ‘Once Entombed’ back in the day via our sub-label Transcending Obscurity Classics. We couldn’t resist their brand of Obituary-esque death metal but with a ton of thrash elements. Several years later, Abyssus recorded a full length album that can easily be called their finest till date. It was a no-brainer to sign a multiple album deal with them for several formats and cement a future for them. They’ve excelled in all departments and we can’t wait to unleash this masterpiece some time in 2021.
Band’s statement – “We are more than proud to cooperate once more with Kunal and Transcending Obscurity Records. Actually our compilation “Once Entombed…” was the first release ever for Transcending Obscurity Classics when an honest friendship and a great relationship full of respect was born. It wasn’t a difficult decision to make a deal with Kunal when he asked Abyssus to enter the family of Transcending Obscurity, a label with great bands under its shield. Our second album, “Death Revival”, is ready and we are really proud of the final result. Old classic thrashing death metal is delivered in the veins of Death, Obituary, Possessed, Master and all those legendary bands that born in the late 80s and established the death metal sound in the 90s. “Death Revival” is made from fans for fans with passion, love and tons of work and comes along with an artwork made by the one and only Andreas Marschall (Blind Guardian, Obituary, Running Wild, Destruction and many more).
Konstantinos Analytis – vocals
Panos Gkourmpaliotis – guitars
Chris Liakos – lead guitars
Kostas Ragiadakos – bass
Jan Westermann – drums
Those of the unholy salute you.”
A brand new song from the new album ‘Death Revival’ will be part of the upcoming 2021 label sampler that will be unleashed in January. Keep an eye out for it!
