American extreme metal quartet Abigail Williams debut with LEGEND, a five-track indication that they have arrived. Sounding awfully close to Arch Enemy, songs like "The Conqueror Wyrm" share that virtuoso quality enrobed in vitriol, while "Watchtower" finds the band going into full-on Dimmu Borgir meets Old Man's Child black metal assault mode, corpsepaint not included. An interesting mix of what Europe knew about all along is what Abigail Williams delivers in a compact yet wondrous way, properly distributing all of its influences to make cohesive clumps of extreme metal excellence.
