Here is the promo statement: "Decibel Magazine is now exclusively streaming “The Atonement,” the first single culled from Toronto-based death cult, ABYSS’s "Heretical Anatomy" debut, impending release through 20 Buck Spin mid-April. The second of eight grisly passages bound into the album erupts with a whirlwind of debilitating and utterly sadistic grinding, percussive, death metal and never relents, much like its seven counterparts, which collectively burn all modern metal trends to a sulfuric, insignificant dust."
"Heretical Anatomy" will see release through 20 Buck Spin on LP and digital formats April 14th, 2015, guaranteed to attract fans of Napalm Death, Exhumed, Repulsion, Impaled, Noisem, Terrorizer, Carcass, Axis Of Advance, labelmates Mammoth Grinder, Bone Sickness and the like. ABYSS will also trek the barren North American plate spreading their diseased hymns throughout the year, with new tour dates to be announced shortly.
Exploding with a tenebrous style of Stygian, grinding death metal, witnessed through two prior demos including "The Reins Of Horror" via Dark Descent Records, "Heretical Anatomy" documents the first fully realized glimpse into the dark surging ABYSS. Hideous shapes and bloodthirsty rites of the Old Ones are viciously summoned upon the bones and bowels of the Earth, through eight odes to nameless terrors and protean revulsion mercilessly ripped from the flayed life of the cosmos and dripping with crimson adoration. The frenzied blasting of early American and UK death metal and grindcore, before a distinct separation between the two existed, is a hallmark of Heretical Anatomy, yet the overwhelming speed scattered throughout the album’s duration is expertly applied, never descending into a one dimensional space where only velocity is the basis for existence. Songs are crafted with the care of the elder gods, rigorously refined with a seasoned sophistication, always maintaining a sharply primitive ferocity. Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust adds his touch to the production, mixing and mastering this malformed death metal and the horror of its Lovecraftian persona.
