Abbath Release Third Solo Album, “Dread Reaver”, with Mia Wallace

Abbath: Dread ReaverBlack metal legend Abbath has returned with his third solo album, entitled Dread Reaver. The former Immortal frontman used this album as a chance to showcase some of his influences.

“The goal was to field a storming production that sat firmly at the crossroads of Abbath’s heroes KISS, Motörhead, Manowar, and Bathory,” a press release explained. The album also includes a cover of the Metallica classic “Trapped Under Ice.”

While Abbath handles bass on five of the album’s tracks, the remaining four are handled by bassist Mia Wallace, who returned to his solo band last year after a one-year hiatus. (Wallace in the meantime joined Nervosa.)
