Ever since the band's founding in late 2004, AHAB have been exploring the deep dark sea, while becoming the true masters of solemn melancholy. Not only did the four-piece create their very own subgenre, Nautic Funeral Doom, but never has pessimism sounded so beautiful. AHAB's impressive live show at Death Row Fest 2017 in Jena, Germany was recorded by the festival's in-house sound engineer, who handed the band their footage on a USB-stick after their intense and memorable gig. Now, and as a special highlight in the band's history mastered by Role Wiegener at Tonmeisterei, AHAB have chosen a finest selection of live tracks, originally released on their pathbreaking, 2006 album, The Call of the Wretched Sea! Live Prey, the first live release by the nautical doom heavyweights, is gracefully nestled in between slow-motion grooves, big riffs, and haunting melodies accented by the angelic but guttural vocals of Daniel Droste, in an apocalyptic live sound as you would experience it only from the front row at an AHAB show. Featuring five blackened doom anthems such as “Below the Sun”, the majestic beast “Old Thunder”, or the almost 17-minute long magnum opus “The Hunt”, Live Prey is the ultimate live record by the undisputed sailors of slow heaviness! An indispensable must-have album that belongs in every well-sorted Doom, Black Metal, and especially AHAB record collection.
