Only 7 left in stock (more on the way). And on this album, the combination works extremely well. With musicianship to spare and razor-sharp songwriting skills, Absu create music that's epic, unrelenting, and at times even catchy. The whole album has a very ominous feel, and the band's thrash attack should get heads banging in no time. Proscriptor has the black-metal d voice down perfectly, and his drumming adds a level of technicality that's not often seen in this style of music. Shaftiel launches one volley of fearsome riffs after another, and the subterranean bass rumbles along quite effectively.

Tara is the fourth album by black metal band Absu. It was released on May 23, 2001, by Osmose Productions. It contains the In the Eyes of Ioldánach EP as bonus tracks. Early promotional material for the album stated that Mike Scaccia of Rigor Mortis/Ministry fame would contribute to the album but that did not occur.

This works very well for their sound even if it is a departure from the genre norm (and probably a big reason why people are reluctant to lump these guys into the black metal category). This element also gives Tara, more so than their other works, a clear "punk" influence - akin to Carpathian Forest or Impaled Nazarene. The bass is mixed a bit low (as always), but there is at least more low end in the mix. Absu's vocals have always struck a chord with me and they are excellent on this album as well - some may criticize the high-pitched singing vocals that come in occasionally, but this adds to the atomosphere and makes it sound all the more "old school.

This is the best Black/Thrash album I ever heard. Proscriptor is a amazing drummer.
