Abyssal Throne

Abyssal Throne is an EP by the Canadian technical death metal band Sympathy, released in 2005 on the Norwegian label Momentum Scandinavia. The EP was released in a strictly limited edition of only 850 with an 8-page, 5-colour booklet with gold print. The EP features several guest appearances: vocals by Matt Knowles of Royal Anguish on "Insipid", and additional lead guitar work by Dustin Olson, Tim Roth (Into Eternity) and Rob Doherty (Into Eternity). The EP features an intro and 5 songs, of which 2 are new, "Insipid" and "Ascendency", and 2 are re-recorded versions from Invocation, "Immolation of the Dragon" and "Occupy". The last song, "Torn into Enthrallment" is a Suffocation cover from the 1995 album Pierced from Within. The cover artwork was designed by Samuel Durling, a reputive Swedish graphic designer. The EP received good reviews, and the critics considered the Ep an improvement over the style of Arcane Path, being more extreme technical death/black metal.
