Los Angeles' death metal masters ABYSMAL DAWN have unleashed "Soul-Sick Nation", the third and final single from their upcoming release, Phylogenesis. The album is due on April 17, making it the band's debut to Season of Mist. "Soul-Sick Nation" can be heard BELOW.

Vocalist/guitarist/lyricist Charles Elliott comments:

"This is a super heavy and groovy one. It's the first time we've used 7 string guitars and the first time we've tuned to A standard. Lyrically the song deals with inner demons and the mental health epidemic. Something that has touched so many people in my life, including myself.

On a more uplifting note, the song features three ripping solos. One from our very own Vito Petroni (solo #2), and two from Fredrik Folkare (solos #1 and #2) of UNLEASHED and FIRESPAWN! It was a great honor to have Fredrik play on our record; he's an absolute beast of player. We played some shows in South America in late 2018, and asked him to play on our record after a night of drinking probably too much Pisco. So happy it worked out because he laid down something truly special. Enjoy!"

ICYMI: ABYSMAL DAWN has scored the cover of Issue #52 of New Noise Magazine! Along with an in-depth interview with mainman Charles Elliott, the issue will also feature an exclusive flexi disc of the band's never-before-heard cover of CANDLEMASS' "Bewitched", which will be made available digitally at a later date. The issue will hit the streets on April 15 and features artwork designs by Par Olofson.

Speaking about the upcoming issue and the choice to cover CANDLEMASS, Elliott comments:

"We're incredibly honored to be on the over of New Noise Magazine. In all my years doing this, I think this is the first time we've been given the prime cover slot of any publication. I'm really happy to see all the excitement around the release of Phylogenesis and all the positive feedback we've been getting so far. It makes me proud after all the hard work that was put into this record.

So, as an added bonus, New Noise is putting out our cover version of the doom metal classic, "Bewitched" by CANDLEMASS. We had some free time in the studio while putting together Phylogenesis and decided to do something totally out of the box for us. I don't think many of our fans would think CANDLEMASS are an influence of ours but they are. It's nowhere near the realm of tech-death or brutal death metal but Nightfall is one of my favorite albums and it's an amazing record!

Now the biggest shocker here is that I laid down some melodic vocals for this one. I don't pretend to be Messiah Marcolin but I gave it my best. I tried to maintain my own voice while paying tribute to the overall vibe of the original. I wasn't sure I could do it at first, but after showing the track to some friends and having the rest of the band excited about it, we decided we weren't making total asses of ourselves. It's a fun track and I think Vito killed it on the lead as well. Enjoy!"

ABYSMAL DAWN previously released "The Path of the Totalitarian", the second single from their forthcoming fifth studio album, Phylogenesis.

Phylogenesis is the first new music from ABYSMAL DAWN in six years! The record is out on April 17 via Season of Mist, making it the band's debut to the label.

As of now, ABYSMAL DAWN is planning to host two exclusive listening parties in Los Angeles and NYC. Currently, the status of these parties remains up in the air as local governments in both cities are restricting event capacities and closing down bars and venues. In the hopes that the restrictions will be lifted within the next two weeks, the parties are tentatively scheduled to go on as planned.

The Los Angeles party, which is co-hosted by MMA Fighter/Pro Wrestler Josh Barnett will take place on Thursday, April 16 at 10:00 P.M. at Cha Cha Lounge in the band's hometown of Los Angeles, CA. There will be chances to win an ESP guitar and Season of Mist swag. Admission is free and the event is open to the public.

Meanwhile, the band will be making their way out East on April 10 for a listening party at Duff's Brooklyn, which will take place at 10:00 P.M. This will be the ONLY time that the album will be available for purchase a week ahead of the April 17 release.

ABYSMAL DAWN Phylogenesis Listening Parties:

  • 04/10: Brooklyn, NY @ Duff's
  • 04/16: Los Angeles, CA @ Cha Cha Lounge
The artwork for Phylogenesis was created by Par Olofson.
