ABIGAIL WILLIAMS continues to tour in support of their critically lauded The Accuser full-length released last October via Candlelight Records. Captured in just five days by founding vocalist/guitarist Ken Sorceron (ex-Lord Mantis)’s home studio in Olympia, Washington, the eight-track offering is fittingly bleak, dark, nihilistic, and infinitely engrossing and features a guest appearance by Neill Jameson (Krieg, Twilight) as well as the psychedelic cover creations of Portland-based illustrator/tattoo artist, Stevie Floyd (Dark Castle, Taurus). Said Metal Injection of the offering, “ABIGAIL WILLIAMS maintains a balancing act as The Accuser drives on. Tracks swoop between thundering tempos with skin peeling shrieks/screams, and melodic sections that are sometimes beautiful, and sometimes harrowing. Never does it feel like the band is exhausting anything because nothing is ever held for very long. The band always manages to maintain something interesting or captivating.” The Metal Observer agrees crowning The Accuser, “…the best release in the band’s career, and certainly one worthy of multiple spins.” New Noise Magazine notes, “The Accuser cements ABIGAIL WILLIAMS‘ status as one of the great American black metal bands, capable of crafting challenging yet rewarding music that rocks as much as it is thoughtful…” Echoes Lambgoat, “With the callous, sonically punishing The Accuser, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS have once again eschewed putting out the same record twice.” Adds Spoutnik Music, “The Accuser will go down as ABIGAIL WILLIAMS‘ crowning achievement, and hopefully, the start of a transition towards the band they were always capable of becoming.”
