Music Review: Absu – Abzu (2011)

Beginning with a falsetto wail that can be expected from King Diamond and not a revered black metal band, Absu pays little heed to conventional structuring and easily hops across genres. Primarily black metal, Abzu blends other styles – thrash, death and traditional heavy metal. Occult-based lyrics are barked with masterly drumming pausing to let an acoustic guitar piece take the spotlight before another thrash riff starts the buildup of the next song. The riffing is energetic and Absu creates an atmosphere effortlessly. The band flows in and out of songs, making them seem like intense jams. Short solos are inserted in parts layered with tremolo picking; stretched passages with the drums pounding induce awe and make Abzu intriguing enough for more listens.

    I just read this review because of the band’s name! 😀
    What’s that star inside circle symbol I keep spotting?
