Abigail Williams prepares to release debut EP

Official press release: Candlelight Records confirms January 23rd as the North American release date for Abigail Williams' "Legend." The limited edition 5-song ep is the territory's formal introduction to the Phoenix-based extreme metal band and coincides with the band's first national American tour; the band participating on Candlelight's upcoming (and highly anticipated) label tour featuring co-headliners Dark Funeral and Enslaved. Amassing an impressive quarter million hits to their MySpace page (this in under six months), Abigial Williams defy classification by taking the groove and melody of Gothenburg-styled death metal, face-smashing breakdowns of the hardcore scene and top it with the bombastic and epic-flavored frostbite of black metal's evilest hordes. The result is a multi-faceted and unforgettable hybrid that already has genre aficionados taking an immediate interest. Kerrang! says, "the bloody birth of black metalcore. Abigail Williams have taken fresh-faced metal down the left hand path...the result is obscenely exciting." Abigail Williams' full-length debut is planned for an early Spring 2007 release. Additional touring plans will be announced in cooperation with the album's release date. Thr track listing for "Legend" is as follows: 1. From a Buried Heart 2. Like Carrion Birds 3. The Conqueror Wyrm 4. Watchtower 5. Procession of the Aeons
