Today’s New Noise: Phantasmal Abyss

Phantasmal Abyss are a blackened death metal band out of Oakland, California. They just recently put out a new single called “The Spawn of Lycaon,” and it’s streaming now on their Bandcamp.

The track starts on what feels more like a punk beat than anything blackened or death but quickly moves into more aggressive territory as the screechy vocals come in. There’s a certain lo-fi aspect to the production that harkens back to the early hardcore days, but the vocals and guitars are more clearly metallic than hardcore. It’s a unique song that might not represent the first thing that comes to mind when you think of blackened death metal, but it’s clearly metallic, especially in the wild solos that come in towards the end. Check out the track below.
