According to a press release, Candlelight Records will release the new Absu album on October 4. The album is called Abzu and that is the evil album art.
The album is part two of a planned trilogy of recordings from the Dallas-based mythological occult metal band. Mixed by J.T. Longoria, the album features the original works of Polish artist Zbigniew Bielak.
Abzu was recorded at Nomad Recording Studios in Carrollton, Texas.
“Abzu is the first studio release to feature a co-vocalist alongside myself since our third album, The Third Storm of Cythraul,” says drummer and vocalist Proscriptor. “Ezezu’s vocal presentation is beyond superlative and I am overly pleased with his execution and delivery.
“The songwriting undertakings were equally distributed between both Ezezu and Vis Crom and I must admit it brings an admirable multiplicity to the album as a whole,” he continued. “The last song on the album, ‘A Song For Ea,’ was composed in six movements, as it brought the entire band together as an equivalent songwriting team. Vis Crom has definitely proven to be Absu’s most proficient guitarist in the history of the band.”
The album will feature six songs; the sixth is spread out over six parts. Song titles include “Earth Ripper,” “Circles of the Oath,” “Abraxas Connexus,” “Skrying in the Spirit Vision,” “Ontologically, It Became Time & Space,” and “A Song for Ea.”
