Recorded in 2002, released as CD in 2005, and now finally available as Vinyl. Following a crooked path, the journey has been long for IRWS. The good and positive feedback we got from “the Dead End” vinyl release made the band & Black Star Foundation thinking of making IRWS available as vinyl as well. With the good help from Ufuk Demir (Walk through fire) it was finally possible to adjust Johan Carlzon’s amazing artwork from it’s pixilated small size originally for CD-print to how it looks today. The album has been mastered for vinyl, and it sounds just brilliant on solid black 180gr thick vinyl!
If you haven’t already heard about the band. Abandon were one of the leading names within the Doom/ Sludge genre, but also mixed their music with loads of progressive and ambient parts.The band stopped to function in 2008 when singer Johan Carlzon tragically passed away due to a heroin overdose.
