Greek OSDM stalwarts ABYSSUS premiere new track via The Metal Wanderlust

Abyssus are on the verge of releasing one of the strongest old school death metal albums this year. They’re taking the best elements of the classic late ’80s/early ’90s bands and reinterpreting things their own way, with added oomph. The Metal Wanderlust unveiled yet another song that can be heard AT THIS LINK

“Taking its cues from the likes of Obituary, Slayer, Master, and Asphyx, “Metal of Death” serves as proof that Abyssus can stand quite comfortably alongside the best of the best.”

Starting off as a band playing a much faster, thrashier and crustier version of Obituary, Greek death metal band Abyssus have come a long way. Their music is now absolutely formidable; it’s impeccably structured and flawlessly executed without any compromises on the vision. The passion and spirit are still there but channelled brilliantly, in a far more mature and powerful setting, with a sound that they’ve honed to perfection using liberal doses of thrash metal elements. While hearkening back to the glory days of the late ’80s/early ’90s, Abyssus do more than just revel in the recreation of that sound but imbibe elements unique to their music and create a compelling expression that not only does justice to it but sets standards on how it is to be done. To that effect, ‘Death Revival’ will go down as an iconic album where the style of classic death metal goes in this era.
