Absu – Tara (DLP)
Clear brown marble vinyl! This is a reissue done completely right! Improved on all levels: better graphics, better sound, better production quality. “Tara” is probably my favourite Absu album and this repress is simply stunning.
Osmose Productions is honored to re-unleash Absu’s fourth full-length masterpiece, Tara, as a dual-album set. 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 Ioldánach 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 the gatefold with three sensational illustrations. (Full-color poster included). 400 x marble – ultra-clear/brown 2×12″ (180g) in a black poly-lined innerbag, printed insert on 220g, poster A2, full-color on 150g art paper, gatefold, full-colour on 350g.
