Absu is the fifth studio album by black metal band Absu. It was released on February 16, 2009 (Europe), and February 24, 2009 (USA), by Candlelight Records. It is the debut recording for new members Aethyris MacKay and Zawicizuz, with additional musical contributions from Vastator Terrarum (who left before completing the album) and original guitarist Shaftiel. Ezezu joined the band after the recording process was completed.
Abzu is the sixth studio album by American black metal band Absu. It was released in 2011 on Candlelight Records.

ABSU quickly followed this up with the In the Eyes of Ioldánach EP in 1998. What followed that was the creation of what was easily the pinnacle of the bands tenure as a three-piece, 2001’s conceptual album Tara. That year also incidentally saw the band recruit a new second guitarist, Kashshapxu, as the band were primed to take Mythological Occult Metal to the masses. However, in early 2002, Equitant left due to musical differences and during this period Proscriptor auditioned for Slayer, who eventually went with their original drummer Dave Lombardo.
Absu means an abyss or a bottomless chasm. This American black thrash band is based in Plano,Texas(well known as the headquarters of Frito Lay snack products). Proscriptor sang the vocals and played drums for this band. Then he left the band. In late 2001, he auditioned for Slayer to play drums, for Dave Lombardo's temporarily vacated spot. In 2002 Proscriptor broke his wrist in an accident. It took lots of rehabilitation for him to regain his drumming skills. After he recuperated,he flew to Europe to record the album Sphynx as the drummer for Melechesh.
Absu is a band I'd long heard of but hadn't listened to until recently, and Abzu was the first album I checked out. I deeply regret not having listened to this band sooner; their aggressive fusion of black and thrash metal is terrific, and they are easily one of the best bands to play in this style. Abzu is an energetic, fast, and powerful album

If it reaches the audience it has the potential to, Absu will probably be compared to Cynic's Traced in Air, at least in terms of context. Like Cynic, Absu have been on hiatus for a hell of a long time (8 years, to be precise), leaving time for a legacy to fester; make no mistake, even if Cynic have generated a much greater fanbase and a much greater respect with death metal circles, Absu's excellent Tara did much the same in the black metal world on.
