Abigail Williams has uploaded the brand new video for the song, "Into The Ashes" online. You can check it out below. The song comes from the bands latest album, "In The Shadow Of A Thousand Suns."

Abigail Williams frontman Ken Sorceron comments on the making of the video: "We filmed the video underneath London Bridge in this dungeon-like area that they used to store dead bodies in. We felt right at home, minus the smell, of course. We actually had just returned to the UK, having completed some European dates. We had been going on eight straight weeks of touring at that point, so we were all pretty tired, but we got through it and had a good time."

Best thing to happen to Melodic Black Metal, IMO.

Shame they lost Ashley on keys, definitely one of the most talented players and writers I've seen.

I don't know about "best" but they're definitely a plus. One thing I love about Melodic Black Metal, or Symphonic Black Metal as I would call it, is the attention to musicality. Each instrument has its place in each song. Abigail Williams actually renews my faith in American Metal a bit.

I'd like to throw out there though...their image says metalcore to me.... I mean, I'm all for moving forward, but that seems sideways rather than forward....

Anyway, great musicians! All that truly matters.

I'll probably get some backlash, but have to put it out there. I loved the music. Immediately drew me in. The layout of the song put equal emphasis on every instrument. The keyboards really helped to provide a very gothic/victorian mood which gave a creepy undertone to the whole song. In fact the whole piece evoked a very cinematic feeling similar to a horror movie soundtrack. The guitar flourishes were a very nice touch.
I was turned off by the vocals though. Unintelligible screeching. And while I do understand and appreciate the effort that goes into that style of singing it just doesnt work for me.

Erm, I meant to say best thing to happen to MBM since Enthrone Darkness Triumphant.

I disagree on the metalcore thing, but then again any band in America that plays anything resembling breakdowns is automatically thrown into the core grouping so I disagree on that alot.
