Abigail Williams  

Named for one of the main accusers of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692, Abigail Williams has been a band of change, in terms of members (a near-constant lineup in flux surrouding mainman Ken Sorceron), home bases (originally from Phoenix, but they've also resided in Los Angeles, New York, and Washington State) and even musical styles, meandering from early metalcore leanings to symphonic black metal on their early albums to a more post-black USBM approach on 2012's Becoming, their latest album to date. The band has also broken up several times over the years and as such at any given time their status is somewhat up in the air.
