New Jersey devils Abacinate have made their triumphant return after a year-long hiatus following the tragic loss of vocalist Jason “Plunger” Sica. Rejoined by original vocalist Ian Neal, who appeared on the band’s full-length debut, Ruination, Abacinate is picking up right where they left off over a year ago. Denied the opportunity to tour in support of their last album, Genesis, which was released earlier this year, Abacinate is currently planning on hitting the road in the spring of next year in order to give fans across the country a dose of their energetic live performance. The band is also currently writing new material in preparation for their third full-length, which is expected to be released sometime next year.In the meantime, Abacinate is currently streaming a selection of tunes on their Facebook page and a string of “return shows” set for this fall.

“Genesis certainly has its fair share of mosh-pit-ready low-end chugging, but the album is more than just an excuse for sweaty young men to run into each other: Abacinate seems intent on keeping its music, well… musical. Between the breakdowns, nearly every song on Genesis has a little nugget of instrumental goodness that displays Abacinate’s technical skill and/or ear for melody.” – MetalReview.com
“Expect some vigorously fierce riffs, harsh growls, vile screams and lots of double bass pummelling all delivered in a furious manner.” – Scratch The Surface
“It’s burly, chugging nature may be more akin to the deathcore style, but the death metal influences amongst the mosh are just too strong to ignore. ” – MouthForWar.net
