Nihilist Abyss is an emotionally charged blend of hard rock, industrial and classical music helmed by native Chicagoan Cherice Cosentino. Songs are heavy in contrast - thundering bass, pounding drums and thick guitars underline a dark, soaring mezzo soprano voice that finds itself equally at home in a whisper or a scream.
The debut single 'Dark Days' made it's way onto Chicago Music Guide's "Best of 2019" list. The follow up single, "Mother Winter" found it's way onto local Chicago radio. Since then, Nihilist Abyss has released an entirely self produced, mixed and mastered demo EP titled "Prey", which V13 Media hailed as "an impressive feat for an artist still finding her way."
Cherice's next body of work, the self-titled "Nihilist Abyss EP" co-written producer and guitarist Nick DePirro (NightVerses, Headcave) is set to be released January 13, 2022. Expect a heavier and darker exploration of music and emotion than previous releases.
