Hot off the heels of announcing a run opening for legendary blizzard beasts Immortal, the true Sons of Texan Darkness Absu's vocalist/drummer/visionary Proscriptor has revealed even more news: after the six-date tour, the occult mythological black metallurgists will enter the studio to begin recording their new album, Abzu, the second in a three-part series.
Make the jump for a typically verbose missive from Proscriptor, Abzu tracklisting and tour dates (in case you've already forgotten.)
"This recording will feature our signature sound in maniacal fashion," Proscriptor said. "Now, we're appending dirtier elements of psychedelia and fusion characteristics. Lyrically, it will descend deeper into Enki’s lower world as well the Enochian Magic(k) System. I can tell you this album will definitely not be a 'natural progression' from previous releases, but a feat of metaphysical conquest and murkiness."
No album art yet, but the projected track listing of Abzu has been announced as (in no particular order): "Circles Of The Oath," "A Song For Ea," "Skrying In The Spirit Vision," "The Waters – The Denizens," "Warren Of Imhullu," "Earth Ripper," "Ontologically, It Became Time & Space," "Vita Janua Mortis."
