Last seen on the continent over a decade ago in 2003, the band have teamed up with key independent Australian promoters to book a tour that takes in most capital cities and several regional locations including an appearance at the Such Is Life festival.
Formed in Dublin in 1994 out of the ashes of death thrashers, Bereaved, Abaddon Incarnate fast became one of the most noted bands in the underground metal scene. Evolving from their death roots into a more grindcore direction, the band released several landmark releases including three studio albums, The Last Supper (1999), Nadir (2001) and Dark Crusade (2004) before entering a forced hiatus in that same year.
Re-emerging in 2007 with a renewed line-up, the band toured across the globe, becoming the first Irish metal band to play Ecuador, Colombia and Peru. The band also released album number four Cascade (2009), and a split EP with Orange County grinders Phobia in 2011.
In 2014 Abaddon Incarnate signed to legendary extreme music label Candlelight Records and released their fifth album Pessimist.
Abaddon Incarnate are preparing to decimate the nation when they return. It’s been a very long time between drinks and they can assure you, it won’t take them that long to return again. Brace yourself for an evening of grinding madness, one that’s been 14 years in the making!
