While the last six years have been filled with an abundance of broken bodies, shattered bottles and moments of heinous debauchery, they have also seen Abacinate evolve from just another garage band to an impact player on today’s underground scene. Refusing to stand still or spin their wheels, Abacinate’s growth process can be easily traced from their early demos and split releases to the release of their full-length debut, Ruination; an album that Blabbermouth.net states “packs a lot of punch and keeps things interesting.”
It seems that the critics weren’t the only ones to take a liking to Abacinate’s seamless blend of brutality, melodic death, thrash and unadulterated heaviness, as they’ve shares stages with acts raging from the legendary Testament and Napalm Death to new-school warriors such as Job For A Cowboy, Suicide Silence and Necrophagist (just to name a few). The summer of 2010 saw Abacinate strike out on a DIY tour with fellow Jersey-natives Fit For An Autopsy, which earned both bands new fans across the country and served as one more notch in the proverbial bedpost. Before hitting the road, Abacinate entered The Machine Shop with producer Will Putney to record their anticipated second full-length, Genesis. A sonic slab of concrete and razor wire, Genesis offers as much chaotic brutality as it does schooled and focused songwriting. In short, this album gives the metal community a much needed kick to the cubes.
In September of 2010, Abacinate suffered the tragic loss of frontman Jason “Plunger” Sica. Once again, the band’s stop-at-nothing attitude prevailed and Genesis will not only serve as a tribute to the singer’s life and memory, but as a testament to the strength and determination he shared with his bandmates. This is Genesis. This is Abacinate. This is fucking metal.
