Abigail Williams Empyrean Into The Cold Wastes (demo version)

Download videos:

From the album In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns (this is the demo version released in 2007, not the final version that apeared on the album) Oh in the night skies burns a darkness that will enlighten all of mankind as we know And it will glow with so bright a light showing us a clear path once invisible But in the stage of decay... Enshrine the forgotten secrets of the earth buried by angels in starlit chambers This is the sound; listen for the sound of the trumpets Through the eyes of creation I see the final stages of decay beneath the burning palaces of heaven and into the pits of sands I watched the kingdom come crumbling down Wrought their own destruction Subterranean origin Cataclysm casting the world into the dark The winds of wrath are howling into the cold wastes

abigail williams black death metal in the shadow of thousand suns

2:56 perfection
MIDI? lol see the words "demo version" in the title? lol you're dumb kthxbai
I'm an anime looking person, play death/black metal, and not labelling anything. I know my music xD You're the one labelling stuff. And I'm not emo xD
Here's my explanation for this music labelling problem: There's no objective thing that makes a difference. When you're a metal fan, you know about the soul this music should have; it's heavy, it's overwhelming your mind. When you're a core fan, you just enjoys that underground stuff that is trashy as hell and gives you killer mood that makes you enjoy the thing a lot. If you recognize yourself there, you should be naturally able to tell the difference. Anyone agree?
sorry I suck at English. was that comment positive for me or it was offenssive?
they do just for the hell of it.
true, but its more black metal than previous releases...
do they use a metronome it sounds a bit off
this is not black metal, it is a form of melodic/symphonic death metal or deathcore
Totally agree!!!
Michael Miller
@TheGrowingTree Haha i totally agree. brutal.
Rio Violensia
this is DEATH METAL ....
Yeah besides, I wouldn't even classify this as black metal. Well, maybe new wave black metal. But that's not saying much.
damn, this shit is unbelievably sick!! i just had a chance at seein them last night with decrepit birth & the faceless, but their van had a leak in the gas tank so it would've blown up if they showed!!
wtf? this is not the right version of this song..this is like midi...Listen to the real one
abigail williams are awesome
one of the best songs ive heard in a while, bands like these really ensure black metal lives on, and give it their own unique touch
yea seriously dimmu borgir is awesome but cradle of filth fucking sucks dont compare 2 different styles and atlents of course. ABIGAIL WILLIAMS MAKES MY PENIS EXPLODE! WITH BRUTALNESS!!!

Trym Torson (Emperor, Enslaved) played drums on all the tracks except "Floods", "Acolytes", and "Empyrean: Into the Cold Wastes".
Zack Brody
Not my type of music but no problem with the drumming. And this is not negative to you fans
Wow this is pretty dang impressive. Singer kinda sounds like Black Dahlia.
awesome song, awesome band, awesome album.. and lol about this genre war. imho naming this black metal is the best u can do with these category ppl today that would call this melodic black/deathcore bla bla whatever.
cant wait for that new album been waiting soo fucking LOOOOONG!!!!!!
Hansi Hinterseer
sick drummer!
no. your horrible. you just have to be open to this kinda music.
Sean Peden
Legend EP = Symphonic Black Metal with some Metalcore influences (doesn't make it metalcore) In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns = Symphonic Black Metal
1. good for you that you can look past the genre war thats going on. 2. i said that i hate the word "core" being thrown on every new metal band to hit the streets. 3. your right i am labelling them, Abigail Williams is fucking metal!\m/ not any death/grind/black w/e-u-want-to-put-in-front-of-it-core.

@psyshock918 this is a demo recorded by the then-reformed lineup with Kristen Randall on keys, never realised it had been re-recorded for In The Shadow Of A Thousand Suns though until now!
imstill notusingmyname
good band, its a damn shame they do not have any form of originality. none whatsoever.
to be frank, i hate the "core" label people are putting on every band with 1 SONG you could possibly hardcore dance to. I think its all just anime looking kids that want seem like they know what metal is and are too afraid of bands like necrophagist or cannibal corpse
Seen these live, Pretty good, met the drummer. Good man that samus, Fucking excellent drummer.
thats samus paulicelli for you ;)
Yeah It's true I remember her saying that she loves black metal on Conan O'brien
fucking epic ♥
when is this coming out?
@TheGrowingTree Where did you get this info?? Because it is hard for me to imagine that Demi listens to this.
stupid metalcore singers ruining every good band...
Sanskar Wagley
@66Ganon well she ain't super metal, but yeah, she's cute for sure
Sanskar Wagley
@kalloused It was on Fallon's show actually
Sanskar Wagley
That's why she's my favorite DIsney star lol..not to mention she's really cute
Sanskar Wagley
October 26 or 28...I forget
Sanskar Wagley
they sure do
Sanskar Wagley
You mean the track off the actual album is different?
It's hard to believe Demi Lovato listens to this.... God this is the shittt
Miguel Eduardo
ouuu men..this is a good band of black metal...and not a big fan os this genre i prefer the death metal, but i must say that i'm very amazed...good sound...a good way of scream...
they rule! and Trym of Emperor is blasting for them!
lol noobs this is so moparscape so fake nerds get a life
they are original because they are the only ones that bring the sound of 96-'98 year black metal and nuclear blast metal back and make it in their on way and trym is blasting on the new album for them and have good "non-pussy" vocal and good music.. they're good! Not quite original, but the idea of bringing that 1996-98 sound back and still they're more original than 1000 of nowadays bands which all know the same bands and think they know music..
You're a fucking idiot.
@NebirosAndWinter this is NOT black metal! for fucks sake! it is just stupid metalcore desecrating good name of real (hate to use this word) metal genres, poor death metal. And now stupid american wannabe dark and evil emo kids try to make something they call "2nd wave b.m.".... how sad.
