VØLUS has returned with his second full-length release entitled Thrown to the Abyss a follow-up to Festering Anti-Cosmic Wound (2020) and Deadstar Illumination EP (2021). The album name is taken from the song “Thrown to the Abyss” VØLUS wrote back in 2018 on The Vermin Speak demo.
VØLUS mastermind Justin Vølus comments on the album, “A newly improved sound has taken hold, evolved yet still dissonant and macabre as ever before, but with a dark progressive twist to the songwriting. This newfound direction has enabled the function; to create audio scapes that fill the mind with a dreadful fleeting embrace. The embrace of what it must feel like to be knighted by the damned. A perspective of past and present, Life and Death. The perspective of immortality and paradoxes. The variation and ideas on this record are inspired by many sources such as HP Lovecraft, Legacy of Kain, Robert Bloch, and the Egyptian esoteric.”

Vargheist Records will release Thrown to the Abyss on June 11. Pre-orders are available at Bandcamp.
Thrown to the Abyss was written, performed, recorded, and mixed by Justin Vølus, with mastering by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studio. Cover art by Dede Suhita.
