ABATTOIR: New Album Update, Special Anniversary Concert Planned
Los Angeles-based thrash metal legends ABATTOIR will release their long-awaited new album in late 2004 or early 2005 through Artillery Music. "If you didn't know, we had a recording snafu in which all of the tracks were lost when we only had a rough mix completed," ABATTOIR frontman Steve Gaines writes in an online posting at The Earth-Dog Chamber. "So it will be a mastered version of the rough along with every demo we did going into the recording — plus the original two-song demo from 1983 — extremely rare — about 20 songs total. It will be called 'From the Ashes'."
In other news, ABATTOIR are planning a special concert to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their "Vicious Attack" full-length debut (Combat Records). The show, which will feature appearances by all of the group's original members (Gaines, bassist Mel Sanchez, guitarist Mark Caro, drummer Robert Wayne, and guitarist Juan Garcia), will be filmed for DVD release. "I cannot wait for this — it will be a ball to do," Gaines writes. "But, remember, this is ABATTOIR — it could all come crashing down as we speak."
