A Very Abysmal Christmas

A year after launching the Abysmal Crucifix blog to promote a screenplay and double-album nobody but me cared about, I decided it needed fresh blood—new music. I started going back and recording songs that allegedly populated previous Abysmal albums, but first, I came out with an anti-commercial Christmas single. The song has a sound unique in the Abysmal canon because, at the time, I was having serious intonation issues with my electric guitar and could afford neither a strobe tuner nor a professional re-intonation. So I plugged a fuzzbox into my microphone chain and played the majority of the song on a multitracked acoustic guitar. (The only exceptions are the two guitar solos—it’s much harder to distinguish intonation problems when you aren’t strumming chords.)
