Abigail is a long running Romanian band (their first demo is from 1994), who released a new EP last year. It Is The Night I Fear is four tracks of classy, slightly gothic tinged death doom. It is a very song oriented EP, the melodies are memorable, and the transitions from medium tempo doom to the faster, deathier parts are pretty seamless. Keyboards and orchestral arrangements are also well integrated, in fact everything works in service of the songs. It Is The Night I Fear is the forerunner of a new full-length coming next year, I will definitely be checking that out.
