I really appreciate when bands are offering to their audience small gifts to keep them busy and satisfied. In a music industry when even big names are premiering their singles on YouTube or bandcamp and shameless naming it digital one, when an underground beast like Abyssus writes a new song and creates an EP with noticeable material around it, then I have to admit that I give them kudos for that move. Even though it was out in December 2023 it’s never late to grab this one. The EP entitled “Under Siege” features the new song we have mentioned above (“Siege of Drogheda“), one cover on the famous punk hymn by GBH (“Necrophilia“), and 5 live recordings (of some excellent tracks from the band’s back catalogue), songs performed when the Greeks supported Asphyx in Athens in November 2023. The new song has a punk feeling (d beat tempo and galloping rhythm along with thunderous guitars and fast soloing that can’t hide the fury that comes out of Analytis throat) that matches with the cover on GBH and giving us a piece of their taste and how these influences are filtered in their sound. There’s not only early Death, Obituary or Asphyx on Abyssus music, as they manage to create heavy grooved songs with memorable parts and neck breaking blasts. The rest of the EP (“The Witch” which is close to the two openers with high octane energy and tempo, “Echoes of Deslation”, the colossal “The Beast Within“, one of my favorites “Unleash the Storms” and last but not least “Into the Abyss”) will bring goose bumps and arouse a sense of great excitement for their fans as in these recording it totally captures the feeling of their performance their live tracks you can hear how they give 100% of their passion, while emotions and the atmosphere of the songs change rapidly without losing any of their ferocity and savagery; all giving a final result full of thrilling moments showing a band showing their skill proving that knows how to kill and makes it seem too easy…
