Black sheep of the Black Metal scene. Outcasts and outsiders since the very beginning. Somehow, Abigail Williams are still alive, still thriving, still creating, whilst so many of their critics and competitors have fallen by the wayside.
The band returned with their boldest and most diverse offering to date: their fifth record, Walk Beyond the Dark, to be released November 15 via Blood Music.
Equal parts introspection and extremity, Walk Beyond the Dark is a testament to the band’s journey across the years; all the miles they’ve travelled, all the trials endured, all the mud thrown at them, all to keep doing what they love, on their own terms and without compromise.
Throughout all of these storms and tribulations remains band leader and songwriter, vocalist, and mastermind Ken Sorceron. In so many ways, Sorceron himself is Abigail Williams, its heart, mind, and spirit. Deftly wielding the forces of light and dark in skilled measure. Icy guitars and bleak atmospheres encircle. Rapturous bursts of string accompaniments penetrate the melancholic futility of shadow and despair. Powerful guitars shift between slithering rhythms, contemplative grooves, and all-out assaults.
