TEXAN OCCULT METAL MASTERS ABSU have set the 4th of October as the release date for their upcoming alum ‘Abzu’. The full-length, first of a trilogy, will be released by Candlelight Records.
The album has been mixed by J.T. Longoria (King Diamond/Solitude Aeternus) and features original artwork artist Zbigniew Bielak (Watain, Behemoth, Destroyer 666, Vader).
Drummer/Vocalist Proscriptor comments, “This album has not only been the most challenging in Absu’s discography, but the quickest paced – composition and arrangement wise. The current line-up is scattered all across the United States, so the album was physically written utilizing internet file sharing. We even rehearsed, at times, while communicating via cell phones. Lyrically, the album descends deeper into Enki’s lower world as well Thelemic and Enochian Magic(k) Systems. My lyrical architecture is extremely convoluted, so I decided to create a generalized synopsis explaining the themes behind each song. I feel these are my best poems since 2001’s Tara.”
