Los Angeles based thrash metal legends ABATTOIR have completed work on their third studio album, "Evil Incarnate", tentatively due in late 2003 through an as-yet-undetermined label.ABATTOIR's fourth album overall (following last year's successful comeback CD, "Live! No Sleep 'Til Kalamazoo"), "Evil Incarnate" features 14 new songs, and is being described as "the best music ABATTOIR has ever done… slightly ahead of 1985's classic 'Vicious Attack' … exactly what you would expect from ABATTOIR."
