Abbath’s new album Outstrider is scheduled to arrive this Friday (5th) via Season of Mist. Today (2nd), these Norwegian black metal giants have decided to stream the record in full ahead of its release date. We recently reviewed the LP as Metal Insider contributor Jeff Podoshen expressed:
“This record is another crusher and is bound to show the black metal scene that Abbath, as a solo artist, is doing more than well on his own.”
Abbath commented on the group’s sophomore effort:
“Abbath, honed sharp by trial and terror, proudly present ‘Outstrider’ – our latest catharsis wrung from the guts of darkness. Forged in fiery furnace of adversity, hammered on an anvil of rage, this album is conjured from conflagration coughed from rift of Chaos, rising like a Phoenix from the Pit, to infect our Spitegeist with shamaniacal reflections sheathed in metal compositions, hooked and riffed by razor wire licks impaling bass-lines pulsed on drumbeats dredged from thunderous abyss, by a hive-mind wed to one whole emission: To boldly go where no band has gone before and one step further!”
