Mythological occult metal discoverers ABSU announce the release of their new single, “Hall of the Masters” courtesy of this year’s Adult Swim Singles Program. Once again, the band has showcased their signature style of occult black/thrash mythology to dark new calculating territories — whirlwinds of razor-sharp guitar work and top-notch drumming. The track was recorded at Nomad Recording Studios in Carrollton, Texas and once again mixed by J.T. Longoria. (King Diamond, Solitude Aeternus) An official video to accompany the song will be released on September 10 directed by filmmaker Daniel Garcia.
