Obscene Requiem presents: January 11th 2014, FARANG // ABYSS // ABSOLUT

This should be an interesting one, The Magpie is relatively new to shows like these. It's a small venue that usually features acoustic, folk, some electronica, that sort of thing, so we shall see how long it lasts as a viable option for gigging. At any rate - Fucking Farang! They play about as often as we do, which is too bad, because they're an amazing band. Dark and raging! Absolut, if you don't already know (you probably do), play Scandinavian inspired hardcore, loud, noisy, great. And Abyss from Puke Turkey. It's $5.00.

Lastly, for those of you who give a shit, Abyss will be recording January 25th 2014.

Show booked for January 11th

Abyss, Absolut, and Farang Saturday January 11th at the Magpie in Toronto. Poster and facebook event page to follow soon.

There will also be a show booked with a band TBA at a local DIY venue (tba), tentatively booked for sometime in February. We will post details as they get solidified.

Recording will be happening soon.

in the meantime, if you missed the original post, you can download our recording from the Equalizing X Distort at the Abyss Bandcamp page , free of charge. The recording was taken live off the floor at CIUT in Toronto February 2013.

Not Dead Yet 2013

Abyss has been added to the bill for Not Dead Yet fest 2013. We're not sure of the details, but we'll amend the post as they become apparent.

**OCTOBER 7th Edit: the weekend schedule is posted here: Not Dead Yet 2013 line up, and it looks like you'll have to get up early to catch us play. We're not really into foreplay and we don't snuggle, so be diligent if you want to catch our set.

In other news, we're ironing out the details for a small show in January at a DIY venue. Details will be posted soon.  We're hoping to be a little more active with regards to playing live next year (I think we've played 2 shows total th
is year, 3 after NDY, and 2 of those 3 were fests...), this will hopefully include some sort of small tour, as well as some local shows. The past year has been plagued with conflicting work/band schedules, jam room evictions, other non-related personal stresses that have been fairly distracting.  The consensus among us at this point in time is to focus on gigs and recording in the coming months.

We'll see you husks down in the mud.

Heretical Anatomy Tape on Bandcamp

This took some time for us to get to, but you can finally download the Heretical Anatomy tape we released earlier this year. This was a very limited run of cassettes (of which we are all out of, but a very limited quantity is available at Anthems of the Undesirable - see previous post), that featured our session on CIUT' 89.5 FM's Equalizing X Distort. The tape features a couple of songs from "The Reins of Horror", but the majority were demos for the forthcoming LP "Heretical Anatomy".

More Bushit.

The Heretical Anatomy cassette is now available from Anthems of The Undesirable in VA. He should have copies within the week. Also available through Anthems: The Reins of Horror cassette, and the very last copies of the Accursed Followers demo.

To be clear, we (ABYSS) no longer have any copies of the HA tape or  the AF tape.

Edit: Heretical Anatomy tape is also available at: Analog Worship:

Abyss will be recording live off of the floor on Equalizing X Distort this Tuesday Feb. 5th 2013, and the show will be aired at 10pm-12am  (EST) on Sunday February 10th.  We will be playing mainly new material, and maybe one or two off of ROH.
