You can read my review (in Italian) about the debut album "Intercourse and Lust" through the following link:

2 years ago I reviewed (in Italian) for the reissue via Nuclear War Now! Prod of the fantastic debut album of the Japanese Abigail. And now I review their last album, released on CD on 22nd August 2016 always under NWN! to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Abigail, a band so prolific about minor productions that, shortly after the 6th album’s release, has spewed forth via Sabbath’s Fire Records a live album in France even dating back to 15 years ago! But the good thing is, today as yesterday, Abigail, guided always by the drummer Youhei and the vocalist/bassist Yasuyuki Suzuki, aren’t really changed throughout their career, showing today again a musical fury and an underground integrity like few others. Furthermore, the cover artwork of their last album, “The Final Damnation”, was made by a prestigious name: Chris Moyen aka Thorncross, an artist who certainly needs no introduction.
