Abyssal - "This album is the culmination of the most arduous and painstaking creation thus far in the Abyssal discography, simultaneously combining the most eclectic composition with the most conceptually complete lyrical content.
We are proud to have collaborated closely on the art direction with Ikonostasis: Artwork of Elijah Tamu, who managed to capture the essence of the ideas behind this release to an incredible degree."

Profound Lore Records:
"Otherworldly mysterious UK dark ambient death metal entity Abyssal have completed work on their fourth opus 'A Beacon In The Husk' (out June 21 on CD/2xLP/Digital, pre-orders to go live sometime mid-May). 

Standing as the most colossal and ambitious Abyssal offering yet, 'A Beacon In The Husk' stretches the Abyssal sound into even darker, more abstract, noisier, and progressive realms than anything within the Abyssal oeuvre.

Four years following the acclaimed 'Antikatastaseis' observation, an album in which saw Abyssal take a slightly more structured approach to the enveloping death metal horror and one that brought awareness to Abyssal as one of the most prominent death metal artists emerging from the UK, 'A Beacon In The Husk' brings the audial terror to a whole new suffocating and overbearing complex level, even at times making it the most outlier Abyssal album to date.

Featuring artwork by Ikonostasis: Artwork of Elijah Tamu, track listing for 'A Beacon In The Husk' is as follows:

01. Dialogue
02. I – Recollection: Shapes Upon The Retina
03. I – Recollection: Awakening / Metamorphosis
04. II – Discernment: The Cloister Beneath The Grime
05. II – Discernment: Khyphotic Suzerains
06. II – Discernment: The Triumph Of Fools
07. III – Descent: We Who Beheld The Fall Of Axioms
08. III – Descent: A Beacon In The Husk
09. Soliloquy.
