ABSU's PROSCRIPTOR MCGOVERN Suffers Serious Hand Injury

On June 23rd, ABSU drummer/vocalist Proscriptor McGovern was involved in serious hand/wrist injury, which has forced him to quit playing drums for at least a couple of months. His orthopedic surgeon says that the scaphoid bone in his wrist has been completely shattered and will take reconstructive surgery to mend it back together. This means that the upcoming albums by ABSU (Absu) and MELECHESH (Sphynx) will be postponed and recorded at a later date.

In other news, Proscriptor is preparing to release a new 7” picture-disc vinyl titled Thoth Music(k) for the new California-based label Defenestration Records. The record will contain two exclusive cover tracks from the early to mid-Seventies era "reflecting his character and façade," according to an official statement. "In other words, this is pure occult rock music." Also, ABSU will be re-releasing their debut album, Barathrum: V.I.T.R.I.O.L, on full-length picture-disc vinyl through Bestial Onslaught Productions in the US. The first 200 copies of this collector's edition will include a T-shirt, insert, sticker, and button. Both releases will be available in the fall.
