Los Angeles, CA’s ABYSMAL DAWN recently wrapped up the recording and mixing process to their new album and follow up to 2008’s Programmed to Consume.
“We’ve been working on and off in the studio on this album since May and now we’re finally done,” commented ABYSMAL DAWN guitarist/vocalist Charles Elliott. “After a series of set backs, illness, and going through a world of shit in our personal lives, we had no choice but to make this record our revenge and the defining moment for ABYSMAL DAWN. We’ve had the finished mixes for about a week now and everyone that has heard it has been just blown away. We can already tell that this will be the record that the band will become known for. It’s a very varied, extreme, technical, and melodic record and I can promise you that no one will be disappointed.”
The yet-untitled album’s drum parts were recorded at Trench Studios in Corona, CA with John Haddad (PHOBIA, INTRONAUT, HIRAX). The majority of the sessions were produced and recorded by Mike Bear (ARTISAN, ex-PROTOTYPE), at Artisan Road Studios in Encino, CA and the CD was mixed and mastered by Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, GOATWHORE, HATE ETERNAL) at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL. An early 2011 release date is expected with additional recording / album details to be made available shortly.
