Much as the name suggests, the latest visual offering from Brighton death metallers A Night In The Abyss serves up a gruesome 14th century rehash of one the darkest moments in modern British history to the sound of grand orchestration and blast beats.

Based loosely on the story of Harold Shipman, the General Practitioner notorious for murdering his patients by means of morphine overdose, the 4 minute clip follows a deranged plague doctor (guitarist Jack Higgs) who has developed an almost Hannibalistic love for putrefying flesh and eventually decides that simply waiting for his victims to drop dead of their own accord was not enough.

Blending elements of symphonic metal and black metal in with modern deathcore, A Night In The Abyss are a band with vision beyond the boxes set out by their peers, showing potential and promise in the dwindling light of Brighton’s metal scene.
