  • I live in Dallas, Texas, and grew up in this area, which means I remember when Absu were a phenomenal local death metal band in 1991, much harsher and more underground, than Pantera in neighboring Forth Worth who, just a couple of years before, had still been a local act with their first thrash-y album, "Power Metal" getting them as popular as I ever thought they would be. It still blows my mind that both of these bands achieved international stardom--back in the late 80s, Rigor Mortis was the only underground metal band from our area that had a national album out, and that seemed like an accident!
  • US tour imminent, Apsu almost done and confirmed for 2016 release. https://candlelightrecordseurope.haulix.com/Public/View/31679
  • Haven't listened to the s/t much but Abzu is great. Anyway what is going on with the new album, is there any news yet?
  • I celebrate their entire catalogue. I also celebrate Load and Cold Lake and Reload. Seriously.
  • Don't understand penis-headed disconnect between Tara and S/T. It continues to be whatever "Mythological Occult Metal" means in Proscriptor's brain. I agree they're not on par with their classics but Abzu still draws me in as regularly as Barathrum.
  • Nah their new albums blow. Tara for life.
  • These guys have never released a shitty album [8] I second this, I fucking second this. Absu are probably one of the real and good Black metal acts still out there.

  • Only Dolmen is real.
