An abyss is like a pit with no end.Like a place of no return or an unknown place.Slayer probably associates the abyss with hell and the huge fire pit its described to be.The abyss is thought to drive people mad.Anyone have other definitions?

My favorite online search for definitions, Encyclopedia, and Thesaurus entries as well as others from such sources such as The American Heritage Dictionary, Oxford University Press, Britannica Concise Encyclopedia and many others as well as the Wikipedia entry (usually at the bottom).


abyss (ə-bĭs')

n.
An immeasurably deep chasm, depth, or void: “lost in the vast abysses of space and time” (Loren Eiseley).
The primeval chaos out of which it was believed that the earth and sky were formed.
The abode of evil spirits; hell.
[Middle English abissus, from Late Latin abyssus, from Greek abussos, bottomless : a-, without; see a–1 + bussos, bottom.]

Usually I find abyss used in a negative connotation, although it could have that seemingly neutral stance.
