Abbath, the current band of Immortal vocalist Abbath Doom Occulta, are releasing their anticipated sophomore album Outstrider on July 5 via Season of Mist, and lead single "Harvest Pyre" is out now. As you'd hope for from Abbath, "Harvest Pyre" is pummeling, in-your-face black metal, and it comes with a truly searing guitar solo. It's making us very excited to hear the rest of this album. Listen and check out the tracklist below (including a Bathory cover).
