Consisting of only four tracks, Envy’s follow-up to 2006’s INSOMNIAC DOZE is a dynamic head trip of epic proportions. Ricocheting from screaming hardcore to ambient alt-rock, ABYSSAL blasts through a tsunami of emotional content within a mere 25 minutes, leaving the listener yearning for more. One of the most creative bands on the Japanese scene, Envy has been releasing experimental, heavy music like this since the late 1990s.
