Static Abyss is the new mouthpiece for a rotten age consisting of the duo of Greg Wilkinson and Chris Reifert of legendary American masters of sickness Autopsy.
Static Abyss’ debut studio album, Labyrinth Of Veins, presents an unnerving, multi-layered eerie concoction of dirty doom and death, including themes exploring the echoes of insanity manifested through human existence. The result; a sinister onslaught of at times slow and bludgeoning brutal metal whilst at others whipped into a storm of chaotic vile hysterics. The spirit of Autopsy is at times present in the truly titanic riffs swathed in chilling atmospheric guitar leads, whilst Chris’ seemingly bottomless pit of morbid inspiration from the dark and twisted corners of life permeate the release with his highly distinguishable delivery to further the descent into madness.
Labyrinth Of Veins was recorded at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, CA, and Great American Music Hall, with engineering, mixing and mastering overseen by Greg himself.
