TRACK PREMIERE: Lausanne's Abraham declare its a "Wonderful World"

In my day job as a social worker, the buzz word in terms of good practice, is the ability to be good at reflection.  In life, whether we’re at work or whatever the situation may be, we need time to consider what we have done and the reasons why, because although our actions at the time may have been the right one specific to that situation or circumstance, once we reflect,  we may reach a different conclusion and in turn our actions may be different in the future.  

Today’s featured band, Abraham emerged from the flourishing Swiss music scene of the past decade. During their 8 years of existence and through festivals and tours supporting Cult of Luna and The Ocean, the band have forged their reputation as one of the top bands in Europe, however when you consider it has been 6 years since their last full length, consider this and let us pause for a moment and reflect, what have done in this time, what have you achieved and would you have made the same choices?  Now over the last 6 years, I have had three kids, sold a house, bought a house, changed jobs and it just so happens that 2018 is my six year anniversary at THE SLUDGELORD, now there may be many things I would have done differently, but being part of this blog is not one of them (I love my kids btw),

Now Skid Row once said we’re “Slaves to the Grind”, so what better way to take a much needed break and listen to some killer tunes, all I am asking of you is 4 minutes of your time.  After 6 long years, the beards of Abraham are back, their new record is finally here and it really is... something else.

 “Look, Here Comes The Dark!” is, simply put, a concept album about the end of times: a classic post apocalyptic dystopia and today at THE SLUDGELORD, we’re delighted to be able to debut a brand new track entitled “Wonderful World”.  Released on May 11th via Pelagic Records, the album is divided into four consecutive periods, one for each vinyl record, throughout which the story of the disappearance of all life on Earth is told. Each section is defined by a unique approach in terms of style, song writing, and degree of experimentation and choice of instrumentation.   Check out “Wonderful World” below and don't forget to reflect, haha.   Preorders are being taken here
