Absu - New Member, Album Completed

Texas-based mythological occult metal outfit Absu have announced the addition of bassist/co-vocalist Ezezu (ex-Panzram) to the group's ranks. This is the first time the band is experiencing a permanent quartet-type line up since the band's debut album "Barathrum: V.I.T.R.I.O.L".

Drummer/vocalist Proscriptor says of the latest addition, "We are very proud to welcome Ezezu as the newest member of Absu. He was the missing element we have been searching for and definitely fits in the group. We are delighted to convey our next chapter of mythological occult metal with him."

Absu has just completed the recording of their latest album, "Absu" to be released in the beginning of 2009 on Candlelight Records. The album was more or less engineered by the band, mixed by none other than J.T. Longoria at Nomad Recording Studio (King Diamond, Solitude Aeternus, etc.) and will be mastered by Proscriptor at his studio Tarot Productions.

Guest musicians on the album include the following:

Ashmedi (Melechesh)
Blasphemer (ex-Mayhem/Ava Inferi)
Equitant (ex-Absu/Equitant)
David Harbour (ex-King Diamond/David Harbour)
Michael Harris (Darkology/Michael Harris)
