Texas-based mythological occult metal trio Absu is hard at work on the follow-up to 2009’s self-titled LP, and the new record — called Abzu is coming to life at Nomad Recording Studio in Carrollton, Texas; the disc will be mixed by J.T. Longoria.
“The entire rhythm section has been successfully tracked and all that remains are mellotron passages and vocal lines,” says drummer/vocalist/lyricist Proscriptor. “Before attempting the final mix, we plan to transfer the rhythm section onto two-inch tape to thaw out its digital timbre. With this record, we are appending dirtier elements of psychedelia and fusion.”
The disc is the second of a three-part series and is planned for release later this year.
“Lyrically, it will descend deeper into Enki’s lower world as well the Enochian Magic(k) System,” he added. “I can tell you this album will definitely not be a ‘natural progression’ from previous releases, but a feat of metaphysical conquest and murkiness.”
