Guitarist MICHAEL ABDOW is known for his work with Progressive Metal luminaries FATES WARNING, but over the last thirteen years the skilled axman has been quietly carving out quite the solo instrumental catalog. Beginning with Native Alien in 2010, Abdow has been approaching each album with a different attitude and atmosphere. On October 6, 2023, MICHAEL ABDOW released his fourth solo album Seance In Black through Couch Cat Records. Abdow handles everything from compositions to performances, producing to financing, and merchandising to releasing.

I had the chance to catch up with Michael ahead of the album's release for an in-depth discussion of Seance In Black. Abdow also discusses his DIY approach, his admiration of STEVE VAI, using Spotify simply as ad space, seeing YNGWIE J. MALMSTEEN live for the first time, the hardships of pressing vinyl, how he got the gig in FATES WARNING in 2013, his work on RAY ALDER's recent solo album, why FATES WARNING is more likely to tour than make a new album, his MA-based '80s tribute band AQUANETT, and much, much more.
