LIVING ABYSS | Progressive Melodic Death Metal from Germany

JULE & TOBIAS LEAVE THE BAND(posted: 2022-08-05)

Hi everybody, we do have some sad news for you today. Jule and myself (Tobias Dahs) have decided to leave Living Abyss and concentrate on other projects in the future. This hasn't been an easy decision, but for a while now the vision of how we want to run the band simply has been very different. I want to point out though that there is no bad blood or any issues, instead we both want to thank Jonas, Tobias Parke, Hendrik and also the former members Tom, Paul and Fabian. It has been an amazing ride, we have great memories together and released a ton of kickass music, but now it's time for us to tackle new challenges. Don't worry, Jule and myself will continue to make music and will focus now on Kings Winter . So if you want to keep following our endeavours, you might want to leave a like there.

A statement regarding the general future of the band with more infos will follow in the next weeks.

Also in the background I will still handle all the shop orders for the time being, until another solution is in place. So all your orders on Bandcamp will be honored.

NEW NAME, OLD TRAITS! (posted: 2019-10-13)

A new chapter begins for us, as we start fresh with our new name LIVING ABYSS!

As some of you might have noticed, we had to take down all our releases and pages very abruptly a few weeks ago. We were forced to this step by some legal issues caused by a trademark conflict with a band, that shared our former bandname Leviathan.

As you might imagine, being forced to change our name after 12 years in business, was a pretty hard blow for us. Therefore we had to take a few weeks to regroup and find a new name. But now were are back and as always we won't let any struggles bring us down!
Instead we will rise from the ashes once again - stronger!

Within the next month we will re-release all our music under the new name - first up are digital releases on all major platforms, before we follow this up with small reruns of CDs, to enable you to also buy our music in physical form.
Please check back here, since we will keep you updated on what will become available again.

FIELD INVASION FESTIVAL 2019 (posted: 2019-07-16)

A big thank you to everyone who came out to our show at this years Field Invasion Festival - We had an absolute blast playing for you!

Further we want to thank the whole team behind the festival, who have managed to create such a great festival for fans and bands as well. We have seen quite a few festivals within these past 11 years, but it's been a long time since we were part of such a well organized event. From stage setting all the way to a brilliant sound-crew, this was a perfect experience. Thank you!

FINAL SHOW FOR 2018 (posted: 2018-12-23)

Troisdorf, thanks for an amazing night and for ending this
incredible year on a high note with us!

We've had a great time, even though we had to play without our drummer Tobias Parke, because he is currently expecting the birth of his first child any minute. But the awesome audience didn't seem to mind the drums coming from the backing track!

Further we'd also like to thank Torsten (left side on the picture), Petra, TaktArt and everybody else who created the "Bauhaus Live" concerts and supported underground music this way over the past decade!
