Abyss were founded in 2009. Throughout the years, the line-up of the band was completed by young musicians from the rural area of the bavarian smalltown Dorfen. The sound emerging from this constellation was inspired by early nineties swedish melodic Black/Death Metal Bands. Melody and the high pace in certain moments of their songs demonstrate a revival of groups like Dissection or Sacramentum. But besides all that nostalgy, there are influences from modern representatives of the Black and Death Metal genre as well, while bringin certain individual elements, derived from their own style finding process. The songs are characterized by the exchange of filigree instrumental passages followed by partly melodic and partly raw riffing. This bandwidth serves the delivery of the
Band ́s concept, which deals with chaos in all its facetts. The published EP ́s are, displaying in an abstract way several cycles, which start and end with chaos. Every release therefore shows a way from and a way to chaos, which in any case is inevitable. Abyss played several shows around Bavaria and got first festival experiences as well as concerts abroad.
