Six years after a highly praised full-length debut album (Illuminate The Path), AN ABSTRACT ILLUSION return with their second album Woe. A giant and intricate slab of atmospheric death metal inspired by black metal, progressive rock and electronica, Woe offers up some of AN ABSTRACT ILLUSION’s most accomplished melodies and riffs to date. A 60-minute song divided into seven pieces, combining beauty and brutality in a unique way, the album’s musical depth is a feat to behold, one that will remain lodged in the psyche long after the final note is heard. Let the waves wash over you, the behemoth has awoken…

 Artwork was done by Adam Burke (Sólstafir, Vektor, Barren Earth, First Fragment, Gatecreeper and many more).

Mixing/mastering was done by Robin Leijon (Equilibrium, ATENA, and In Dying Arms).

BIO:

Chaos meets atmosphere, brutality meets beauty. That’s two ways of describing An Abstract Illusion’s ambient-influenced Death Metal.

Hailing from northern Sweden, An Abstract Illusion was formed in 2007. This trio draws inspiration from genres such as electronica, indie and folk, which makes for wildly varied music where no song is the same as the other.

In the summer of 2014 the group released their debut EP Atonement is Nigh, garnering interest from all over the world. In July 2016 the band released their debut full length, Illuminate The Path.
