***"Abigail was formed as a three person band in January 1992.?! Original members are Yasuyuki (bass and vocals), Youhei (drums), Yasunori (guitars).?! I wanted to play black metal like Bathory, Sodom, Hellhammer, Darkthrone, Mayhem.?! So I asked Youhei, a friend from school who was into Slayer to play drums.?! I recruited Youhei’s friend Yasunori to play guitar.?! I had already written some guitar riffs and the three of us headed into rehearsal right away.?! We rehearsed twice a week in the local studio.?! Songs came together quickly.?! Grotesque nightmare, Death of life, The fire of hell, Lucifer sings.?! They were typical primitive black metal songs: just power chords, no development.?!
