Originally released in 2012, ABYSSOUS’ …Smouldering debut demo displayed a fresh take on a rotten sound. Ever unearthing dark treasures, IRON BONEHEAD releases this cult gem on vinyl LP, bolstered by two newly recorded, previously unreleased tracks. Anchored in the ancient ways of the Metal of Death yet exuding a bold, flowing flair for songcraft, ABYSSOUS compositionally run the gamut from teeth-gnashing, tempting-the-corners-of-chaos violence to slowly simmering, doomed-out dementia, taking the listener on a journey to eldritch depths…and beyond, and back. Through it all, the power-trio keep the execution red-eyed and rabid and indeed …Smouldering. Now with a cavernous, 3D mastering job by P. Engel at Temple of Disharmony and new artwork by Misanthropic Art, ABYSSOUS’ …Smouldering has become that much more mind-melting.
