American extreme metal royalty returns with their first new studio album in eight years. The self-titled recording features the newly expanded quartet with an all-star array of guest musicians. Belgian artist Kris Verwimp handled the album's surreal packaging while the sonic aspects were directed by the band with mixing controlled by J.T. Longoria (KING DIAMOND, SOLITUDE AETERNUS).
Lyrically, I am concentrating more on Sumerian-based occult themes of magick and mythology versus the Celtic aspect of my previous writings, which was heavily expressed on the last few Absu studio albums. Musically speaking, the material will be quite similar to Tara, but with more of a 70s progressive/ psychedelic texture within it.
Great riffs, great rhythm, elaborate drumming, and crisp production that preserves a rich atmosphere: Absu has made another great record. - Metal Injection 5/5
