24 Years Ago: ABIGAIL finish recording Descending from a Blackend Sky EP (Tokyo Black Metal)

ABIGAIL play fast and simple Black Metal. Their 7" EP on HSB Records as well as their split LP on Warmaster Records are incredibly fantastic.

On this day in 1993 Yasuyuki Suzuki (then also known as Barbatos, before he formed the band) finished recording Descending from a Blackend Sky at Studio Sozo. It was released by Heretic Supremacist Brotherhood Records, the label run by The Unsane of BESTIAL SUMMONING.

The original 7" was limited to 1000 but you can find the complete EP on the compilation The Lord of Satan which also includes their side of the FUNERAL WINDS split and Confound Eternal EP.

Musically this is not Forever Street Metal Bitch or Sweet Baby Metal Slut. The influence from punk and speed metal had not yet taken hold. It's closer to the debut album Intercourse & Lust (1996), but even there there are hints. This is pure raw black metal of the early "second wave", something they've moved away from but continue to write killer music... black metal, street metal... Yasuyuki and ABIGAIL continue to kill!
