Absu - _In the Eyes of Ioldanach_
(Osmose, 1998)
by: Adam Wasylyk (7 out of 10)
Those Texan blasphemers are back! A four song EP, _In the Eyes of Ioldanach_ features new material that boasts a slightly different sound production-wise, but musically it's traditional Absu: thrash/retro influenced blackened occult metal! A couple of tracks are re-recordings, one being "Never Blow out the Eastern Candle", a track that was exclusive to the _World Domination_ compilation put out by Osmose a couple of years ago. To be honest, this re-recording plain sucks, it's a lame take on an otherwise great track. If they wanted to put this track on _ItEoI_, it should have been the original track untouched and not this. _ItEoI_ is by no means an essential purchase, but if you're a big fan then this should tide you over until they release the next full length, which will hopefully come out early next year.
