Abigail Williams is Not a Name for a Black Metal Band...

...or at least that's what I thought until just now when I looked them up with google to find a link for this blog post. It appears that Abigail Williams was one of the foremost accusers in the Salem witch trials of 1692.

Abigail Williams are also a surprisingly good Black Metal band. I thought I'd passed through my black metal phase a while ago, but these have a bit of an extreme metal edge (think Dark Tranquillity, Arch Enemy) which is really my thing at the moment. The first mini album Legend is like early Cradle of Filth (when they were good) and the new release, In The Shadow of A Thousand Suns, could not sound much more like Emperor if they tried. I love it. Give it a try.
