Drawing lyrical inspiration from esoteric organizations, their beliefs and own practices, Finnish music veteran Jesse Heikkinen (Henget, Iterum Nata) and co-lead vocalist Natalie Koskinen (Shape Of Despair) weaved ritualistic tales from the darkest corners of themselves to pair with music that is a provocative, alluring kaleidoscope of dark, heavy rock.
The result is the mystical »Word Of Sin«, The Abbey’s nine-song debut long-player. Featuring former Sentenced and The Man-Eating Tree drummer Vesa Ranta, Janne Markus (guitar, also of The Man-Eating Tree) and Henri Arvola (bass), the emerging progressive doom rock band debut album is certain to entrance and captivate the listeners with its spell.
For fans of Ghost, Blue Öyster Cult, King Crimson, Pentagram, The Obsessed.
»Word Of Sin« was released on CD + digital formats on February 17, 2023.
Vinyl will be released on July 7, 2023.
