2001 - Death (early), Black/Thrash from United States
Originally released in late May of 2001, it has been a highly celebrated recording and a loyal favorite amongst Absu's followers. Unlike the band's previous two releases, Tara is a concept album that principally deals with the harmony of strife, immortality, puissance and tyranny. It was immediately conceived after their 1998 release of In The Eyes Of Ioldanach when drummer/vocalist Proscriptor's frustration grew with the sinking intelligence in the extreme metal world - it was his calling to fully educate his audience. Therefore, the album features a lexicon (glossary) insert of pensive occult systems and mythological notations - to assist the listener with an enlightened, more comprehensive understanding. As always, Kris Verwimp infuses with three sensational illustrations.
