Abaddonia’s Witchy, Occult Tendencies Take Shape On Debut EP “Dawn of the Serpent”
And so it is written, the dawn of a new era engulfs the horizon. The abyss swallows the Sun, and all its light illuminates. Mortifer, hell-bent on the eradication of all that is unjust and uninspiring, will rise above what remains. The darkness belongs to the new land: Abaddonia. Hailing from the Midwest, USA, this deathcore act got together back in 2019 and after pandemic delays are ready to release their debut EP “Dawn of the Serpent” produced by Chris Wiseman (Shadow of Intent).
“Dawn of the Serpent” is, to an extent, an opening and closing of a chapter for Abaddonia. They had pieces of what remained on this EP back when they started, but thanks to the pandemic, things were indefinitely put on hold. They shifted from a personal-lyric project that focused on personal aspects to embracing that tarot, witchy, dark stuff that they were using their branding for. “Dawn of the Serpent” marks a new horizon beyond what they once viewed as their horizon. They comment:
“We are elated to be unveiling our debut musical compilation “Dawn of the Serpent”. With this, we hope to bring music that can be used interchangeably throughout the day. We hope that people can listen to every single track at their altars, at the gym, at work through their headphones, anything. We want to offer something polished, but still containing some raw elements. Storytelling, but with emotion. This album helped us find our identity, and we hope to accurately tell that story to all of our followers.”
Abaddonia says that they think this is a great starting point for them and that there are definite building blocks rooted in the foundation of this EP that will carry into their more solidified sound as they grow into it. Atmospheric, brooding, and unique “Dawn of the Serpent” offers a wide, but consistent sound that is consumable to a diverse audience, but is also something capable of being held sacred to a particular niche of metal-heads into occult vibes. It is recommended for fans of Lorna Shore, Shadow of Intent, and Aversions Crown.
