Abigail Williams Bio:

Abigail Williams is an American symphonic black metal band, originally from Phoenix, Arizona, but now based in Los Angeles, California.

The band would suffer constant changes to their line-up. Shortly after an eight-week tour in support of In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns, vocalist Ken Sorceron would become the only original member remaining. The band was formed in 2005 by guitarist Ken Bergeron, who later became the vocalist. Prior to forming Abigail Williams and taking on the name Sorceron, Bergeron was the guitarist of Victims In Ecstacy, followed by participation in various hardcore and metal acts in Arizona.

The band's sound backed away from its metalcore roots, which was famously described as "black metalcore" by a UK magazine, with the release of their debut album, In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns, and began to take inspiration from the melodic metal scene found in the Nordic countries. Because bands from these countries were immersed in the mythology of their respective countries, Abigail Williams looked into American history. Arthur Miller's The Crucible brought Abigail Williams, one of the original and foremost accusers in the Salem witch trials of 1692, to their attention.
