This is pretty much what I think. It's a cooler idea than it is a band. I've found some of their stuff interesting but they aren't really a band I find myself listening to much.Oh hey, how do you guys like Botanist? I don't super love their overall sound, but I do love the conceptual-art aspect of their thing and appreciate that they're trying to put kind of a novel slant on the genre. And you know I love me some nature-metal in general. Though I do think that their promo photos of, say, drum kits sitting in the middle of the woods are creeping awfully close to Immortal levels of meta-satire
Saw Absu about 15 years ago at my friend's record shop. It is long gone now, but that was the only place in Austin to buy Black Metal.Absu
incredible interview with Proscriptor McGovern:

Bvd Ice is so Kvlt
EDIT: Full Interview With Correct Ending
^ I did not know this. That is freaking amazing. I can't imagine trying to keep those tempos going while doing the vocalizations *and* remembering the lyricsOne thing folks may not realize about Absu is that Proscriptor manages to sing and play drums on that material at the same time. I have a disc opf live stuff that a friend burned for me and it's incredibly tight.
