Zlá správa: Gitarista Aethyris McKay odchádza z ABSU a vracia sa k PANTHEON I. Dobrá správa: ABSU pomaly pracujú na novej doske ("Abzu"). Neutrálna správa: Nepôjde o prirodzeného pokračovateľa vraj desiatkového albumu "Absu" (recenzia).
Proscriptor: "I am here to announce that guitarist Aethyris McKay has decided to quit ABSU and has recently relocated to Oslo , Norway to join PANTHEON I. Working with Aethyris for the past three years has been a prosperous experience and I have the utmost respect for him as my comrade and a superlative musician. He assisted me in resurrecting the band from its hiatus stage and I truly thank him for helping me recast the spell of "mythological occult metal.""
"(...) This recording will feature our signature sound in maniacal fashion. Now, we"re appending dirtier elements of psychedelia and fusion characteristics. Lyrically, it will descend deeper into Enki"s lower world as well the Enochian Magic(k) System. I can tell you this album will definitely not be a "natural progression" from previous releases, but a feat of metaphysical conquest and murkiness."
