about

ABYSMAL DAWN’s first album From Ashes was one of the top death metal debuts of the past decade. The Los Angeles quartet's mix of classic death metal brutality, melodic flourishes, and impeccable soloing with a modern delivery made them a must watch band for the next generation of extreme metal connoisseurs. Remastered and featuring three bonus tracks, From Ashes exposes this sorely underrated effort from one of the best new American metal bands.

Track Name: Impending Doom
[instrumental]
Track Name: In The Hands Of Death
A darkest veil conceals the presence of us all
Through countless wages of war we find our kind
Ever elusive with time

Within the presence of another being
A failed kingdom shall fall
Distill the vengeance bestowed on me
Choose your allegiance for this war

Mankind's failed there's no escaping what's to come
In desperate times we cannot hide
Swift retribution is insured

Joining with destiny
Punishing without control
Cleansing humanity
What will be left of us all?

Life ending prophecy
The end has been right on the wall
Sands of mortality
Brushed by death, crumble and fall

Now turn these pages of insanity
Upon your threshold made of bone
Fading memories of what must be
Forgotten remnants of a throne overthrown
Track Name: Blacken The Sky
Burning winds, celestial death
Inhale the torment searing me and consuming my breath
To ashes I am bound

Breathe the winds of decay
Oh fire, take me away from this place

Oh horrid obsession
Through death we meet again
Exquisite and formless the wind carries me
Drift now closer to heaven

No longer am I
Bound to this world of lies
Gone is the pain
Gone is this life
My remains to blacken the sky

Heavens denied
Blacken the sky

Oh horrid obsession
Through death we meet again
Choke on the embers of forgotten life
Blacken the sky

Heavens denied
Blacken the sky

Precious, godless, phoenix
One who rises from the ashes of a disembodied soul

I drift towards the abyss
Eclipse – the day is gone
Ascend to mournful heavens
To right what has been wronged
Displaced, I die to be reborn
I shed my flesh of scars once worn

Ignite the gates of heaven
Consume the throne of fraud
In tears I longed for her
Now I reach my hand beyond
Grey sinister clouds of darkness
Infest the world of God
Now watch the angels falling
From the scorched abysmal dawn

As they watched the angels falling
From the abysmal dawn
My soul begins to cry
Blacken the sky
Track Name: Servants To Their Knees
Conquering this poisoned land of dream
From this sleep I am now torn
A hatred vast turns this world to black
Fall unto your knees or you will suffer

Mute the screams
Of minds unleashed
Awakened from slumber
Servants will fall

For what we are we will now suffer
A mindless growing herd upon this earth

Servants to their knees

Awake at last drowning in this mass
Wondering now what is God?
Minds unleashed quell this wretched beast
Fall unto your knees or you will suffer...

For what we are

Mute the screams
Of minds unleashed
Awakened from slumber
Servants will fall
Track Name: Wicked Impulse
Wretched are those that be, search not for why
Cold demons barely alive
In wake of insanity why won't you rise?
Release us from evil that lurks inside

Father of mine
If thou art divine
When will you rise again?

For years forgotten pleas hung in the sky
Come to me oh serpent divine
Fall on hypocrisy bleed them of lies
Release us from evil that lurks inside

Father of mine
If thou art divine
When will you rise again?
I'm calling out!

Born of cancerous life all we touch withers and dies
The curse of humanity; a race against time
Wicked impulse to consume life

Wretched are those that be, search not for why
Cold demons barely alive
In wake of insanity why won't you rise?
Release us from evil that lurks inside

Father of mine
If thou art divine
When will you rise again?
Will you not rise again?
Track Name: Solitude's Demise
Restless beings ones who walk this earth unseen eternally
Longing to be free

A new day has dawned
What's to become of them?

Ancient tongues of old once spoke of
Solitude's demise
Echoing from a silence broken
Only I can hear their cries

Spirits that long to be free enter my thoughts possessing me

Now I've seen the absence of humanity roaming free through out our history
The fallen of this age have come with weary eyes and broken hearts
Calling me to end this misery

Ancient tongues of old once spoke of
Solitude's demise
Echoing from a silence broken
Only I can hear their cries
Will they ever escape and be reborn?
Remnants of a past frozen
Kept alive in shapeless forms

A new day has dawned...
Track Name: State Of Mind
Torrents of anger running through my veins
Lying in isolation in darkness I remain
In waiting for a sign of past visions of my life

Drift back to a distant primal self and visualize
Worlds locked within the make up of our cells
Transcend this life

Through the ages I've kept a part of us throughout time
I'm lost inside the mind in which I hide
I know what's seen by eyes is all a state of mind
If I'm dreaming I can't wake up

From conception we begin
Dying matter never ends
Are we only bred to die?
Just a shadow of our time

The mind brings the defiance of the soul

The history of mankind
The haunting images curse this life
I awaken and now realize it is all a state of mind
A prison well designed
Our limits defined
Track Name: Salting The Earth
Save me now from this plane
Liquefy my hatred
Give us shelter from the rain
Embrace your safety
heading through the fog
Floating in a dream
Awaken from the torment
We are obscene

Floating now in a dream
Holding back the urge to scream

Winds befall endlessly
Beating at a figure
Shout into the heartless gray
"What's next to conquer?"
Heading through the fog
Floating in a dream
Awaken from the torment
We are obscene

Unconquerable now we're salting the earth

I foresee the end complete
Ritually engulfed in suffering
Walk with me through fields of greed
Perpetually enslaved to selfish need

Will we find solace when we know the truth?
Will it bring us peace, or piece of mind?
Now bringing out our weakness; devotion absolute
Staring blankly at an empty sky

Unconquerable now we're salting the earth
Habitual, lifeless and born without worth

I foresee the end complete
Ritually engulfed in suffering
Walk with me through fields of greed
Perpetually enslaved to selfish need
Born to suffering
Walk through fields of greed now
Track Name: Crown Desire
Extracting cruelty
From those who go unseen
From a heart of malice
Comes grave atrocity

Cold is the flesh that yearns for the sun
Lying in earth forgotten, rotten and gone

Oh crown desire
Your thorns once made me weep
Pain now inspires
These wounds so bitter sweet

Roses once teardrops now fall in her hand
Woo the forsaken wearing the crown of desire

Gods cannot be failing now
Whores cannot be caring now
Worlds seem to be crumbling down
Time cannot be running out

Rotten and gone
Yearn for the sun
Woo the forsaken
Desire has come
