Abigail Williams Stream New Album “Walk Beyond The Dark”

Abigail Williams are streaming their new album “Walk Beyond The Dark” in full via Revolver. That effort will officially be released tomorrow (November 15).

Ken Sorceron commented:

“Musically, it’s like the ending of one journey and the start of the next. I feel like I was able to take the entire history of the band, all the different sounds and styles we’ve experimented with over the years, combine it all into this grand mixture with new twists and turns, and take it to the next level. Even with it serving as a monument of sorts to everything the band has done before, it’s not about the past, though.

It’s about closing a chapter and looking forward to what comes next, pushing onward and seeing where we go from here. Anyone who follows the band knows I’ve always done what’s been in my heart, I’m always exploring new things and writing with what’s in my head at that time rather than feeling beholden to anything that came before, and this serves as a stepping stone to leap into the unknown.”

You can also find a track-by-track breakdown over at Revolver as well.

The following was said about the new album:

“Abigail Williams returns with their boldest and most diverse offering to date.

‘Walk Beyond the Dark’ summarizes the band’s previous experiments into one defining statement.

The album deftly wields the forces of light and dark in skilled measure. Icy guitars and bleak atmospheres encircle. String accompaniments burst into rapture. Powerful guitars shift between slithering rhythms and all-out assaults.

The grandiosity of the band’s debut album arrives via intricate string accompaniments. The raw fury of their sophomore effort pummels. A sense of space and clarity evokes the band’s third album. And the gritty darkness and progressive oddity evoke the fourth.

‘Walk Beyond the Dark’ melds all previous efforts into an undeniable force, elevating the result to the next level.

Abigail Williams take their rightful crown as the lords of American black metal.

The melancholic futility of despair. Surrender to the mysterious void.”

“Quick update: New album is less than a week from being completely tracked and then goes off to Lasse Lammert / LSD-Studio for mixing. Album title and artwork will be revealed soon after mixing and I promise to start posting more on here when this is finished because the last few years I left it up to other people and very much have neglected it for a while.”
