Ines Escario/Zaragoza (EFE).- The Teruel band Abismo returns to the stage with its second album ‘Esperando al Angel Negro’. This work is an investigation “from the soul” into the bowels of rock, where they dive through different styles.
“When we started with Abismo we were clear that we didn’t want to pigeonhole ourselves into any style, what we were going to do was our soul and the music That we believe in convenience, without sticking to something preconceived,” explained Alberto Arnau in an interview with F.
The well-known face of Teruel Rock promoted this musical project in 2018 with ‘Satanic Song’. Then they went hand in hand with the cursed record. It is an album of “ominous and intimate songs” surrounded by a “dark atmosphere” that brings it closer to gothic rock.
Now, the band is back with thirteen “more diverse” song offerings, with different styles. They range from rock to punk, country, and even a bit of gospel, as well as intimate songs from the debut album.
With this new album, Abyssmo continues to strengthen the seal of his personal identity, “with an impressive collection of songs that immerse you in his special sonic universe: dreamlike places and dark worlds, where rock frequencies dominate, without any restrictions or conventionality.”
Words are verbal
A “sound bacchanal” that Abismo will start this Saturday at the Creedence venue in Zaragoza at 9:00 pm, with the band ‘Tigre’.
The album was recorded at El Sotano Studio in Pamplona by Ikar Piedrafita and the album cover is the work of Javi Recteau, as well as the band’s entire visual image.
And it is that Abismo also attracts attention for its aesthetic which is born from the sound of its songs, which “excite the image”. “We think that the music is quite elegant and we want the image to be consistent.”
The former member of the rock group Visitant is in charge of composing the bases on which the band, made up of members from Teruel, Valencia and Ciudad Real, builds the songs.
In this musical adventure he is accompanied by Ivan Moya and Vega Molina on guitars, Danny Castillo on keyboards and David Pascual on drums.
Music with care
“With the new album we were very clear that we were going to take it with the times and we quietly developed the concept, giving the songs everything they needed in terms of arrangement, sound and production”, says vocalist and guitarist, native Sarion a place. Where Arnau got involved with rock “as a kid” was when he heard the Rolling Stones: “I said, I want to do this too. Then I started listening to all kinds of rock, blues, heavy metal… all kinds of rock and I’m still in love with that music today. Gone.”
“We started by forming a group with friends from the city which didn’t last as long as usual (laughs). And then I formed Visitors, which was active for a long time and now we are in a kind of deadlock”, explained the singer about this band. Visitors may return, but Arnau is now “one hundred percent” immersed in the Abyss project.
After the presentation in Zaragoza, Arnau celebrated that now is the time to present ‘Esperendo al Angel Negro’ live and to “make the most of it” through events such as Barcelona (October 15), the official presentation in Teruel (October 25, November) or Castellon ( 3 December).
