Abaddon Incarnate was formed in Dublin in 1994, playing fast death metal with grindcore elements. Under the name Bereaved the band released two demo cassette tapes, Signs of Death in 1992 and Tortured Souls in 1994. The decision was made to change their name to Abaddon Incarnate on the release of their third demo, When the Demons Come. Since then, the band has released two more promos (in 1996 and 2001) and five full-length releases, namely The Last Supper in 1999, Nadir in 2001, Dark Crusade in 2003 and Cascade in 2009, Pessimist in 2014. Additionally, a split 7-inch with U.S. grind band Phobia was released in 2011.
The band has toured extensively in Europe including Spain, France, Britain, Switzerland, Germany. In South America they were the first extreme Irish metal band to play in Ecuador, Colombia and Peru. Also they have toured in Russia and Australia.
This Summer 2023 they appeared for the second time at Obscene Extreme festival in the Czech Republic.
Abaddon Incarnate is currently signed to Transcending Obscurity Records, but has previously been signed to the Slovakian label Metalage Productions, French label Season of Mist, to the Irish label Sentinel Records, and to the Spanish label Xtreem Music and also Candlelight Records.
