Absu Provide Album Updates and Song Streaming

American black metal band Absu has announced the following concerning their new self-titled album:

"Texas-based mythological occult metal band Absu have posted the song 'Girra's Temple' from their self-titled new album due in stores February 24 on their official MySpace page. The song offers fans the first listen to material on the anxiously awaited new album that features an all-star array of guest musicians."

"Absu is the first new recording from the trio since their highly acclaimed album Tara released in 2001. Produced by the band with mixing assistance from J.T. Longoria (King Diamond, Solitude Aeternus), the album features artwork from Belgian artist Kris Verwimp. Drummer/vocalist Proscriptor says of the album's lyrical concepts, '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.'"

The track listing for "Absu" is:

1. Between The Absu Of Eridu & Erech
2. Night Fire Canonization
3. Amy
4. Nunbarshegunu
5. 13 Globes
6. ...Of The Dead Who Never Rest In Their Tombs Are The Attendance Of Familiar Spirits Including:
A.) Diversified Signs Inscribed
B.) Our Earth Of Black
C.) Voor
7. Magic(k) Square Cipher
