IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present a brand-new mini-album from ABYTHIC, Eden of the Doomed, on CD and 12" vinyl formats.
It was but early 2021 when ABYTHIC revealed their masterful third album, Dominion of the Wicked, via IRON BONEHEAD. Reaping widespread acclaim, Dominion of the Wicked displayed the Germans at their most DOOMED-OUT...and their brand-new Eden of the Doomed mini-album continues this upward "downward" trend. Impossibly heavy and portending and patient in their stripped-back but nuanced songwriting, ABYTHIC again give a masterclass in pure 'n' proud death metal songwriting steeped in the grand teachings of mid-period Bolt Thrower, Asphyx, Grave, and Pentacle. Indeed, keeping that same power-trio lineup handily underlines the POWER within the no-less-atmospheric crush 'n' cruise; the production, in kind, is sharp and shuddering. Consider Eden of the Doomed a brief-but-robust bookend to Dominion of the Wicked and you'll once again be under ABYTHIC's black-ash spell!

I wouldnt call it blackened death but it certainly has the bleak dark atmosphere akin to Akhlys or Watain while pummeling you with pure death metal and a touch of dissonance and doominess á la Morbid Angel..it really combines almost everything i love about metal and theres not a weak spot on here..their first album was good but this is stylistically much different and a vast improvement.
