ABYSMAL DAWN: 'In Service Of Time' Video Released

"In Service Of Time", the new video from Los Angeles, California's ABYSMAL DAWN, can be seen below. The track comes off the group's latest album, "Leveling The Plane Of Existence", which was released in February 2011 via Relapse Records.

On the creation of the dark and sinister new video, ABYSMAL DAWN vocalist Charles Elliott comments: "Well, it's finally done! After a little over a year in the making, we're proud to present the music video for 'In Service of Time'. It was directed and edited by Robert Mestas, who won a contest a while back for making a video clip for our song 'My Own Savior'. He did such a great job with that track that we decided to give him a shot at making a full-fledged epic video for us. Being a self-financed production, though, I think at some point we all realized we'd bitten off a bit more than we could chew. Several favors we're called in and many plans would fall apart, causing the video to be delayed for a very long time. We have to say, though, the end result did turn out pretty amazing. It's a very dark dystopian piece, which you'd expect from us, with a nod to the classic silent German film 'Metropolis'. We would like to thank everyone that worked hard on this to make it come out as cool as it did. Enjoy!"

Elliott previously stated about the "In Service Of Time" track: "Lyrically, the song is about trying not to repeat your same mistakes, and trying to find purpose in life in the time that you're given.

"When I was writing the lyrics, I was very inspired by the infectious mechanized rhythm of the song. I could visualize the gears of clocks ticking away and it got me thinking about my own mortality."

The drums for the follow-up 2008's "Programmed To Consume" were recorded at Trench Studios in Corona, California with John Haddad (PHOBIA, INTRONAUT, HIRAX), with the rest of the instrumentation being produced and recorded by Mike Bear (ARTISAN, ex-PROTOTYPE) at Artisan Road Studios in Encino, California. The CD is being mixed and mastered by Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, GOATWHORE, HATE ETERNAL) at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida.
