Absu – “Hall Of The Masters” Video
Texas black-thrash speedfreaks Absu aren’t exactly the band most likely to team with Adult Swim — the band produces multi-album concept arcs that deal in Sumerian mythology; drummer/frontman Proscriptor is pretty famously one of the more unironic dudes in metal. But team with Adult Swim they did, for the blazing “Hall Of The Masters,” which we first heard back in July. Now, Adult Swim and Absu have created a video for the ferocious track. In the b&w clip, a demon priestess inhabits the bodies of a church full of hapless parishioners. It’s closer to The Possession than Robot Chicken — which is not to say it’s absent of laughs; just that they’re not intentional. Check it out.
