Abigail Williams entered the Keene Machine Studios yesterday to begin recording their forthcoming album.
Their camp says that frontman Ken Sorceron will be engineering the effort along with The Faceless' Michael Keene.
Former Abigail Williams and Black Dahlia Murder drummer Zach Gibson will be playing on the album, as previous band mate Ken Bedene focuses on The Aborted.
"We are very excited to announce the start of drum tracking for our third full-length. Drummer Zach Gibson will be behind the kit on this record, which is exciting for us because we have not recorded with him since the Legend EP," states Sorceron. Having recently returned from a short ten date regional tour tightening up their new five-piece line-up, the band's ranks and sound continue to evolve and this third effort is no different. "Expect some interesting twists and turns once again with this album as we plan to double track some of the drums and some of the compositions are quite lengthy, one even reaching the 15-minute plus range. This will prove to be our most epic material to date," teases Sorceron as to the direction of the new material. "We plan to video our progress and upload video blogs as we go."
Abigail Williams will continue recording the new album over the next month, set for completion in late October before embarking on their previously announced North American tour supporting Norway's legendary Mayhem. The new album has an anticipated January release, followed by additional US tours supporting Dark Funeral and then Deicide.
