    I got this Order thing with my Marduk CD and it had a shirt for Absu, the backside said 'Mythological Occult Metal' on it.
    I was wondering if anyone has heard them and what they think of it, any bands to compare it with and so on. I have found one MP3 from them 'Customs Of Tasseomancy', but I would like to hear more from them.

    This is also posted at Opeth board to get more oppinions.

    Cool, thanks!
    I found everything else but the official site :confused:

    Anyway, if you are interested the thread at Opeth board is getting a bit more answers about what kind of music they are and so on.

    I have their material. The lyrics are interesting. Some called their style as black/thrash metal. The vox is great!

    i seem to vaguely recall some album title that sounded like "the sun of tiphareth" (sp?) or something. it's just so groovy to say that t-word out loud with the stress that's typical of a dialect here in italy. :D

    I like their latest and the stuff I've heard of their earlier albums.

    I'd call Tara thrashy black metal.
