Progressive/Atmospheric Death/Black Metal trio AN ABSTRACT ILLUSION have released “In The Heavens Above, You Will Become a Monster” on YouTube. The song is the second single from forthcoming album Woe and will be available on all major digital platforms August 15.
AN ABSTRACT ILLUSION will release sophomore full-length album Woe September 9 on Willowtip Records.
Six years after a highly praised full-length debut album (Illuminate The Path), AN ABSTRACT ILLUSION return with their second album Woe. A giant and intricate slab of atmospheric death metal inspired by black metal, progressive rock and electronica, Woe offers up some of AN ABSTRACT ILLUSION’s most accomplished melodies and riffs to date. A 60-minute song divided into seven pieces, combining beauty and brutality in a unique way, the album’s musical depth is a feat to behold, one that will remain lodged in the psyche long after the final note is heard. Let the waves wash over you, the behemoth has awoken…
Artwork was done by Adam Burke (Sólstafir, Vektor, Barren Earth, First Fragment, Gatecreeper and many more). Mixing/mastering was done by Robin Leijon (Equilibrium, ATENA, and In Dying Arms).
