Abysmal Dawn Premiere New Song “Hedonistic”, Reveal Details For New Album “Phylogenesis”

Abysmal Dawn have premiered a new song titled “Hedonistic.” This track is from the band’s new album “Phylogenesis,” which will be released on April 17.

“Phylogenesis” Track Listing:

01. “Mundane Existence”
02. “The Path Of The Totalitarian”
03. “Hedonistic”
04. “A Speck In The Fabric Of Eternity”
05. “Coerced Evolution”
06. “True To The Blind”
07. “Soul-Sick Nation”
08. “The Lament Configuration”
09. “Flattening Of Emotions” (Death cover)

The group said the following about the new record:

“So here we are, album number five, six years after the release of our last album! It took a long time to get here but I can say without a doubt, this one is worth the wait. We pushed the limits of all the musicians in this band and everyone is extremely proud. We finally get to release the first single today and can’t wait for you all to hear the whole thing.

The album title Phylogenesis (fīlōˈjenəsəs) basically refers to an evolution of a species in biology. It could be applied to how we’ve evolved for the better as a band, but also how humanity has evolved for the worse. Lyrically the album became sort of concept album some what unintentionally.

It deals a lot with things we encounter in our modern society and the maddening effect it has on the individual. ‘Hedonistic,’ in particular, is somewhat inspired by Maslow’s Hierachy of Needs and that true happiness lies in purpose, not material pursuits.

Thank you to all our fans that have supported us in our absence and waited patiently. This album is for you just as much as it is for us. Truly, thank you from the bottom of our black hearts. We’ll see you on the road with Vader, Hideous Divinity and Vitriol soon and expect even more of us in 2020!”

A “Phylogenesis” listening party featuring MMA/wrestler Josh Barnett will be held at the Cha Cha Lounge in Los Angeles, CA on April 16.
