TMW was lucky enough to premiere a track called “Epic Desecration” just prior to the release of Abaddon Incarnate‘s sixth album, The Wretched Sermon, in August 2022. I called attention to a well-developed death-grind the band was able to cultivate over the years, likening The Wretched Sermon to “Abaddon himself – freshly incepted from the boiling wellsprings of Gehenna.” I worked far too hard on that sentence but the barbarousness of the record warranted the description, I think, over the top as it may have been.
At the end of the year, our very own Progressive Cave Ogier wrote that Abaddon Incarnate “finally hit the masterpiece button” with The Wretched Sermon, which is a classification the PCO does not hand out lightly. Abaddon Incarnate simply had us all riled up, and today we’re happy to reminisce with the premiere of the video for “Rising of the Lights.”
Turn it up!!!
“Rising of the Lights”
Impossible to breathe here
Suffocate in this bed of shit
Agony of a slow death
Murdered by a semi-extinct virus
Resurrected to inflict Its sadistic hate upon me
What have I done to deserve This hideous decay?
I join with the millions in the open graves
The dead outnumber the living as the secondary wave arises
Pestilence from the decomposing masses
The last human chokes to death
A green light rises
As mankind dies
The rotting sepulchres
The rising of the lights
