ABRAMS + Metal Injection

Denver trio Abrams has teamed with Metal Injection to present its new music video, "Sea Salt Lines" – what MI calls "the trippiest live video you've ever seen." 

Tune in, turn on, drop out, here.

Created by prolific videographer Frank Huang (known for documenting the Brooklyn metal scene in his Pit Full of Shit series), the "Sea Salt Lines" video shows the purple-hazed band onstage, ripping through the epic tune. The song appears on upcoming debut album Lust. Love. Loss., out June 16th as a self-released CD, cassette, and digital download, and was recently premiered in its audio form via MetalSucks, here.

Lust. Love. Loss. was recorded and mixed by Andy Patterson (Cult Leader, SubRosa) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, High on Fire). It follows a 2014 EP, released on Canadian label No List Records (KEN mode).

"Post-hardcore, filtered through big Melvins-esque guitar rigs... Abrams find the sweet spot on their independent debut, Lust. Love. Loss., about midway between Hot Snakes and Blood Mountain-era Mastodon, and toss in some great lyrics as well."
–Invisible Oranges

"The trio's self-released debut portends big, big things for the band. Effortlessly meshing angular mathcore with chunky stoner metal, Lust. Love. Loss. recalls Remission-era Mastodon..."
