Both epic and brutal, Drown In The Abyss founded by Alexandre Lavoie with Sam Caron, mixes Lavoie's love for video game music with deathcore to bring you a listening experience that is refreshing in its aggression and blend of styles.
As the band names suggest, the thematic elements of the debut track are about sea creatures invading our lands on earth. The duo tells an imaginative story, filled with destruction and chaos. While there may be some hints of real social events or politics, they are highly metaphoric.
“Rising From The Tides” is the first song the band wrote, with the help of Chris Wiseman from Shadow Of Intent and Currents. Overall, it has been a while in the works, but now the final product is ready to wash over listeners around the world and drench them in a dark and abrasive new sound. Lavoie comments on the process:
“This has been a pretty long process because of some life events, but a very fun and informative one. I used to produce Hip-Hop beats and this is way different. In Hip-Hop, everything is a pattern that repeats itself with minor changes in different sections, in metal, it’s a whole new level of production. You have so many things to write, arrange, and mix. This was for me, a big learning experience and this album is going to help me a lot on my producing / mixing journey.”
The juxtaposition that the band balances cannot be understated. Those who enjoy deathcore and death metal mashed with an orchestra will take interest in Drown In The Abyss especially current fans of Shadow of Intent, Lorna Shore and Signs of the Swarm.
The debut single and title track co-produced by Chris Wiseman (Shadow of Intent) plus mixed and mastered by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy) from the forthcoming 2021 album is now available as of December 18th, 2020 on the following links:

Born in Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Québec, Lavoie started producing music in 2017 making hip-hop beats. His passion for metal and playing guitar slowly came back and he left the hip hop genre for something more brutal and epic. Film music has always been one of the most inspiring music genres for him, so he wanted to introduce the orchestra behind the brutal riffs.
After playing guitar for nearly seven years, he decided to form his own band with the help of his vocalist friend, Sam Caron. Thus Drown In The Abyss was born. Part horror, part orchestra, but entirely heavy, the band is a force to be reckoned with.
In 2021, they will release their introductory album “Rising From The Tides” and on December 18, 2020, they will reveal the debut single and the title track, which was co-produced by Chris Wiseman (Shadow of Intent) plus mixed and mastered by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy).
