“Crushing” is probably the best word to describe the new song from Abysmal Dawn, “Inanimate.” The intro is just mind-blowing with the visceral riffs, building to an incredible mid-tempo groove and then to some blood-curdling vocals.
Check out Abysmal Dawn’s “Inanimate” right here:
Vocalist/guitarist Charles Elliott commented about the song:
I’m very happy to present a new Abysmal Dawn track after almost three years of waiting. It’s a heavy one, so get ready to bang your fucking head with the song on repeat until your neck won’t move anymore!!!
Lyrically this one is about losing your idealism and becoming a cold, unfeeling shell of a human being, in order to survive our modern society. An inanimate object if you will; one without hope that has cut themselves off from emotion. Our experiences in this life can carve us into stone, but they can also desensitize us in the process. In short, this might be the most depressing song you ever wanted to circle pit too.
The album will be released on CD/LP/Digital/Deluxe Digital formats. The CD and digital releases include a bonus cover of Dissection’s “Night’s Blood” and the digital deluxe version includes demo recordings of every song on the album. A Relapse.com exclusive vinyl color is also available and includes a full color album cover poster. The devastating, otherworldly artwork was created by Pär Oloffson (The Faceless, Spawn of Possession).
