ABSU's forthcoming sixth full-length opus, Abzu, is set for North American release on October 4th. The band's second album for international heavyweight Candlelight Records, Abzu is the second part of a trilogy of recordings from the band. Recorded at Nomad Recording Studios in Carrollton, Texas, Abzu finds drummer/vocalist Proscriptor and bassist/vocalist Ezezu sharing equal vocal duties and debuts the skills of new guitarist Vis Crom. The record was mixed by J.T. Longoria (King Diamond/Solitude Aeternus), and features original cover art from Polish artist Zbigniew Bielak (Watain, Behemoth, Destroyer 666, Vader).
Today, Candlelight Records USA has posted special preorder packages where fans can order CD/shirt packages for Abzu at this location.
Stay tuned for more live ABSU appearances and tours into 2012 in support of Abzu. Review copies of Abzu as well as limited interviews with Proscriptor are available to North American journalists and outlets via Earsplit PR now.
