Los Angeles’ death metal masters ABYSMAL DAWN have released the official, 3D video for the song “Coerced Evolution,” which is taken from their new album, ‘Phylogenesis.’

The sci-fi themed video can be seen below…

ABYSMAL DAWN comments: “The basic idea behind the lyrics is that some time in the near future, human life on Earth will have become unsustainable. In turn, a certain portion of the population will forcibly have their consciousnesses uploaded to a grid in order to alleviate resources. The same corporations that would have destroyed the Earth, would run these grids and would continue to make a profit on what’s left of humanity in some fashion. The ruling class would continue to live in the real world and make the planet sustainable once again.”

‘Phylogenesis’ is out NOW and can be ordered and streamed HERE.

ICYMI: ABYSMAL DAWN has scored the cover of Issue #52 of New Noise Magazine! Along with an in-depth interview with mainman Charles Elliott, the issue will also feature an exclusive flexi disc of the band’s never-before-heard cover of CANDLEMASS’ “Bewitched,” which will be made available digitally at a later date. The cover is designed by Par Olofsson.

Speaking about the upcoming issue and the choice to cover CANDLEMASS, Elliott comments:

“We’re incredibly honored to be on the over of New Noise Magazine. In all my years doing this, I think this is the first time we’ve been given the prime cover slot of any publication. I’m really happy to see all the excitement around the release of Phylogenesis and all the positive feedback we’ve been getting so far. It makes me proud after all the hard work that was put into this record.

“So, as an added bonus, New Noise is putting out our cover version of the doom metal classic, “Bewitched” by Candlemass. We had some free time in the studio while putting together Phylogenesis and decided to do something totally out of the box for us. I don’t think many of our fans would think Candlemass are an influence of ours but they are. It’s nowhere near the realm of tech-death or brutal death metal but Nightfall is one of my favorite albums and it’s an amazing record! 

“Now the biggest shocker here is that I laid down some melodic vocals for this one. I don’t pretend to be Messiah Marcolin but I gave it my best. I tried to maintain my own voice while paying tribute to the overall vibe of the original. I wasn’t sure I could do it at first, but after showing the track to some friends and having the rest of the band excited about it, we decided we weren’t making total asses of ourselves. It’s a fun track and I think Vito killed it on the lead as well. Enjoy!”
