Los Angeles, California's ABYSMAL DAWN has finished filming the first video for its brand new album "Programmed to Consume". The clip, for the CD's title track, was shot in the band's hometown with director Gary Smithson (TOMAHAWK, HIGH ON FIRE, GOATWHORE).Commented ABYSMAL DAWN guitarist/vocalist Charles Elliott: "We can't wait to see the final product! After about 11 hours of headbanging, and almost setting our drummer and amps on fire, our work is done and we are awaiting the final edit of the video. It's definitely a step up from our first clip and it's been a serious pleasure working with Gary Smithson, who's worked with EXODUS and GOATWHORE in the past. As far as the concept goes it shows us doing what we do best, playing our fucking hearts out! Along with some cool visual ideas that we felt touched on the lyrical concept this should make for a great clip." Still images from the video shoot can be viewed on the band's MySpace page. ABYSMAL DAWN recently parted ways with longtime guitarist Jamie Boulanger. According to the band, "Jamie has other priorities that he needs to take care of in his life, including his new baby girl. We wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors." Boulanger's replacement in ABYSMAL DAWN is Ian Jekelis of ARTISAN, who filled in for the band's past two tours. ABYSMAL DAWN's Relapse Records debut, "Programmed to Consume", came out in May. An e-card for the CD can be accessed at this location. "Programmed to Consume" was recorded last November with producer John Haddad (INTRONAUT, PHOBIA, EYES OF FIRE). ABYSMAL DAWN has posted a "Making Of Programmed To Consume" video, featuring footage of the recording sessions for the band's latest release. Watch the clip below.
