    His best since Fire Chariot of Destruction (aka Death Ship of Death per NAD) 16 years ago. I guess playing live and the input from other band members lit a fire in Darken's larping ass. And he rid himself of mediocre bullshit on the last Lord Wind album. He even throws some clean vocals in there.

    Hail Darken, tub girls, and Snow Yeti Demon

    How old are they though? The one in the middle does not look very old. Or is that the point? It's hard to know what he was going for with that pic. Someone should do one of those "wait till you see what the girls in Darken's hot tub are up to now" type articles.

    Necronautical - Slain in the Spirit

    This is some pretty nice English black metal with quite a few symphonic touches thrown in.

    It's just simply some "Polish maidens taking a traditional hot bath". Nothing else to see here.

    :kickass: I was wondering if they were ever going to do a new album.

    I listened to the new Pain single a few nights ago and it's...............fun...............but Hypocrisy is forever my jam.

    I actually enjoy all the material to an extent. But 4th Dimension, s/t, and The Final Chapter are near and dear to my dark heart.

    I also really have come around to the last 3 releases.

    Longstanding mythological metal act Absu collapsed in a series of legal challenges to the name last year, but the core of the band — songwriter Proscriptor McGovern — continues with a new band named Proscriptor McGovern’s Apsû which plans to release its debut Proscriptor McGovern’s Apsû later this year.

    The label states:

    Touted as one of the most important bands in the history of American Black Metal, Absu was dissolved by drummer/vocalist Proscriptor McGovern (Russ R. Givens) on January 27th, 2020, after 30 years of existence. Since the band’s last, unreleased album was to be penned as “Apsû,” McGovern fused the title with his name to form this new group, Proscriptor McGovern’s Apsû. Securing the ranks, alongside McGovern, are continuing bassist Ezezu (Absu: 2008-2020), new guitar virtuoso Vaggreaz (Possessed, Gruesome) and keyboardist Vorskaath (Zemial, Agatus). With this much anticipated, self-titled album, McGovern’s objective was to append the signature sound of “mythological occult metal,” but to convolute it with bouts of psychedelia, fusion and vintage electronics.

    When asked about the album’s final outcome, McGovern stated the following: “Having the opportunity to assemble these band members, in the development of this album, was a remarkable honour and I strongly feel this album captures the band’s true, yet frenzied potential.” McGovern, who also produced and co–engineered the album, added: “I specifically appointed these three to augment and heighten the overall sound portrait of these recordings, hoping that our emphasis on ‘mythological occult metal,’ coupled with progressive and psychedelic elements, clutches the listener’s momentum. Most importantly, I highly commend Agonia Records for migrating our musical and arcane foresight onto the next level.”

    The album was chronicled at studios around the world with final mixing handled in Dallas, Texas by both McGovern and J.T. Longoria (Absu, King Diamond, Solitude Aeternus) and mastering by Swedish Grammy nominee Karl Daniel Lidén in Sweden. The album also features guest appearances from Ross Friedman (Ross The Boss, ex-Manowar), Rune Eriksen (Aura Noir, Vltimas, ex-Mayhem), Alex Colin-Tocquaine (Agressor) and The Dark (Agatus).

    In assembling the album’s packaging, the band re-commissioned the expertise of renowned Polish artist Zbigniew Bielak (Darkthrone, Portal, Watain). Not only did he administer the front cover, but also was assigned to create eight separate “plate illustrations” tailored around the lyrical conceptions. Regarding Bielak’s work, McGovern stated: “With incredible rapidity, he was able to resuscitate the artistic pulse after I presented the album’s subject speculations and lyrical themes. Some plate illustrations are affiliated with multiple songs; others integrated to only one song, yet Zbigniew perfectly surmounted each piece reflecting my oblique and ‘in–betweeness’ motifs.”

    McGovern continues regarding the album’s lyrical approach: “This album was written for those who are curious and unwearied in their quest of arcane knowledge. I have (with vast exertion and detriment of time and space) collected knowledge deemed, in regard to my subject theories of ‘mythological occult metal:’ from Thelemic Magick and The Zos Vel Thanatos Formula to Fractal Ontology and (obviously) Near East Mythology.”
