Punishing Canadian blackened metal of death. After the superb "Thralls" demo tape in 2008, Adversarial is ready to unleash its aural assault on the world. In addition to the eight haunting tracks and 36 minutes of playing time, this CD includes a spectacular 12-page "poster" fold layout featuring artwork that thoroughly matches the intense music contained within.
Excerpts taken from Jason Campbell's review at Voices From the Darkside:
"The influences that are folded into their sound are sufficiently charged with an individualized touch such that the result is something intangibly unique. Evaluated under this rubric, "All Idols Fall Before The Hammer" is quite possibly the most phenomenal debut Death Metal LP since DEAD CONGREGATION's "Graves Of The Archangels"."
"There is little doubt in my mind that this record will not only be at the top of most Death Metal fans' album of the year lists, but will also stand the test of time and be recognized as a classic of the post-Black Metal era of Death Metal."

I came across Abyssal just a few weeks ago by an email from Profound Lore Records promoting Abyssal's latest offering 'A Beacon in the Husk." This is some solid Death Metal that reminds me of Incantation's 'The Infernal Storm.' Glad I came across this group! Buy this ASAP! Rick Barrios
