Abyss begins ten-city West Coast Anatomization Tour today


Toronto, Ontario-based death metal horde, Abyss, begins their West Coast Anatomization today, the tour set to invade ten-cities over the next week-and-a-half. Kicking of tonight in Vancouver, British Columbia, the quartet will then bulldoze south down the coastline, storming Olympia, Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, Los Angeles, Bakersfield, San Jose, Oakland and San Francisco, where the tour ends on August 8th.

Following the release of their Heretical Anatomy debut LP through 20 Buck Spin in April, critical acclaim on Abyss's abusive death metal reigned in from around the smoldering globe, praising the band's ability to craft the genre's classic stylings into a modernized delivery without impeding on the legitimacy of the founding source material. North American crust metal tones attribute themselves to a thunderous bed of Scandinavian-inspired death worship in a flawlessly executed slab of primal metallic output. Since the release of Heretical Anatomy, Abyss has performed regionally, including supporting the almighty Bolt Thrower, but has yet to tackle a mass accumulation of human civilizations in support of the record, until now, with the proclamation of West Coast Anatomization.

7/30/2015 Black Lab - Vancouver, BC
7/31/2015 Obsidian - Olympia, WA

Recorded and engineered by Chris Hegge at Audiolab, Toronto Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust adds his touch to the production of Heretical Anatomy, mixing and mastering Abyss's malformed death metal and the horror of its Lovecraftian persona. A record which has devotees of Napalm Death, Exhumed, Repulsion, Impaled, Noisem, Terrorizer, Carcass, Axis Of Advance, and 20 Buck Spin labelmates, Mammoth Grinder and Bone Sickness, circling like vultures, Heretical Anatomy unloads the frenzied blasting of early American and UK death metal and grindcore, before a distinct separation between the two existed.

Abyss' Heretical Anatomy can be streamed in its entirety via Soundcloud here and Bandcamp here.

Orders for the vinyl version of Heretical Anatomy can be placed here and the digital here. All LP orders placed directly through 20 Buck Spin include a download coupon.
