The Abyssmals - "For All of Time"

Photo by Caitee Smith
I wouldn't ever expect to hear surf rock out of Schenectady, NY, but The Abyssmals somehow pull that off. Of course, it's not pure surf rock. They add their own upstate NY darkness to it. "For All of Time" sounds like if The Cramps decided to be groovy instead of being punk. There are definitely some punk elements to "For All of Time," but it's more of an undercurrent than a musical style. It's an update of 60's garage and surf rock, but filled with an edge and menace you might not expect.

You can listen to "For All of Time" below. Gospels, Hymns and Other Trash!, the new album from The Abyssmals, will be out April 19 on Five Kill Records. For more on The Abyssmals, check them out on Facebook and Bandcamp. Current tour dates are below the song.
