3.5 greatLambda | July 1st 10

A reasonably entertaining black/death/thrash/whatever metal album. Aside from having some of the best song titles in recent memory ("Of the Dead Who Never Rest in Their Tombs Are the Attendance of Familiar Spirits," "Magick Square Cipher," "In the Name of Auebothiabaithobeuee") this record contains some wild riffing and fantastic instrumentation. There isn't really a bad track on here per se, it's just that many of them sound similar to each other, so at times you think, "Didn't I just listen to this song?" I still recommend Absu's self-titled record to fans of the band and also metal in general, however. 3.7

4.0 excellentdeamonsushi | April 5th 10

A wild mix of thrash, black and death metal, mixed into a stew of proggressive occult goodness. My only complaint would be that sometimes the extremely technical songs lack form and sound a bit like a barrage of riffs, however this is only a minor complaint. This is a very impressive album that takes you on a psycadellic trip through the Magic(k) world of Absu.

1.0 awfulConservationist | April 9th 09

Absu return with an album lacking direction. It mixes death metal, heavy metal, black metal and progressive rock at random, never really managing to write a song but throwing every riff in the book at the listener. It's impressive technically but boring musically.
