ABIGAIL WILLIAMS’ latest album In The Absence Of Light was released in September via Candlelight. Recorded at Conquistador Studios in Cleveland and mixed by Peter Tagtgren (Dimmu Borgir, Immortal, Celtic Frost) at Black Lounge Studios in Sweden, the album presents founder/vocalist/guitarist Sorceron with new guitarist Ian Jekelis and drummer Ken Bedene. The album’s eight songs, written exclusively by Sorceron, contain far more urgency then the band’s previous material, cutting down on snyth and keyboards without depleting their crushing atmospheric capabilities, while adding a more brutal, sinister edge to their attack.

“…gothic, Scandinavian-goosed and slickly-produced black metal… Uncle Sam’s answer to Dimmu Borgir.” – Decibel

“…robust and vicious black metal compositions infused with an abundance of melodicism and harmony – not unlike early Dissection and Dimmu Borgir. 9/10” – Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles

“Whether the band are playing at breakneck speed or reducing to a slower sonic atmospheric soundstage, the band never fails to impress, including some rather excellent melodic guitar breaks. 4.5/5” – Sea of Tranquility

“…a guitar-driven symphonic/melodic black metal attack unlike any other band in North America has ever done before. 90/100” – Infernal Masquerade

“…one of the best black metal albums I’ve heard in a long time. 93/100” – Metal Reviews
