"...while I might argue that something with such a front to back flow that also happens to be 40 minutes long is an album whether The Munsens want it to be or not, what they’ve specifically positioned as a second EP gives more than an ample showing of their hefty wares going into a long-player planned for release next year. If this is them laying groundwork, they’re making sure that ground is duly flattened before they build on it." - The Obelisk

"The Munsens are clearly going for the long game with Abbey Rose, preferring a carefully crafted climate of fear and loathing over quick thrills. These insistent riffs burrow deep into the subconscious, baptizing us into a world of the uncanny." - Doomed & Stoned

"It's an impressive EP (though I'm having a tough time not thinking of it as at least a mini-album), with the whole of it almost feeling more like one long-ass song split into four parts for easier consumption. However you wanna look at it, it's some damn fine doom of a more serious bent than most modern doom bands (especially those in Denver, Colorado, where The Munsens make their home)." - The Burning Beard

"Please pay attention Doom fans, this is something that you don’t want to miss…Following their exceptional debut “Weight of Night”, the Munsens unleashed days ago another EP, a 40-minute record entitled “Abbey Rose”. Their dark huge riffs continue to echo throughout all tunes, getting the atmosphere gloomier and bulkier which creates a bizarre feeling of attachment to the whole set. The most interesting part of defining their sound, it’s that it isn’t the classic Doom Metal you are used to hear, it’s something way beyond that, maybe a Doom Heavy Rock thing, and that’s precisely why it sticks so good in your starved mind. There’s also a Psychedelic influence going on, more exposed within the two last tunes, turning this power-trio into a seriously case of musical addiction." - Round Trip

Track Name: You're Next
Wade in the water
Cast your eyes on the sea
Looming in torture
Beyond the still of the leaves

Behold the spire, we’ve sold
Our firstborn into the mist
All man’s desires, we’re told
Dwell on the precipice

Monolith, host of eyes
Counts the Earth’s, death, demise

Ten thousand years
Silence adrift on the tide
The dawn is near
We’ll sail at first slip of light

Bow to the mountain, arise
Beyond the limits of time
Bathe in the fountain, and ride on through
The Other Side

Monolith, host of eyes
Counts the Earth’s, death, demise

Through endless night
And vessel groans
No sign of life, no nearing the Stone

Phantasmic tower
Turned veil of grey
Summoning dreamers to their graves
Track Name: Abbey Rose
The cobblestone is rigid
Yet it yields not a glimpse nor a sound
The street offers no entrance
No, the guests here, go around

Oh, Abbey Rose

Panes of teal and violet
Reflect the skin I wish that I wore
My world’s been built around me
There’s no handles on the door

Oh, Abbey Rose

I’ve seen the lies I wanted
They are mine to have and to hold
The time may move around us
But these lives inside, they’re stolen

Oh, Abbey Rose
My perfect bones

Oh, Abbey Rose
Enclosed in stone
Track Name: To Castile
Your men are fleeing from the light
Dry, white tongues and blackened sides
I look from high out in the night
This fright, it will be mine

This death knows not a hue or class
It slinks below, it’s moving fast

The Bordeaux docks are burning dark
Sunk silk and gold I see it clear
I held your heart as your daughter
But It was your war that you held dear

I’ll play the part, that much I’ve learned
And place my things neatly to rest beside the urn, Let me be burned
Track Name: The Hunt pt. II
I will never die
I will always rise

I will haunt again
There will be nothing left

This is revenge
I will take the light you knew,
leave nothing left to show
Watch this evil grow

This is revenge
I defied the lies that said
I would stay down below
Watch this evil grow

Your lives will turn a shade
you've never seen before tonight

This is revenge
I will take the light you knew,
leave nothing left to show
Watch this evil grow
Watch this manhunt grow
