AND THE BEST ALBUM, IMO, OF 2011......
ABSU - ABZU
This is no questions asked as Absu has become my top band. Everything about them is just perfect to me, and since I am a drummer I can take a lot from this band and craft it into my own styling. From beginning to end this album delivers. I was disappointed with the reviews it got, since it is an instant classic. It runs at just over 30 minutes (or so), but the raw aggression and tastyness of it makes it worth every second. BUY IT.
Up next I'll post some honorable mentions, best live bands of the year, disappointments (yes, Morbid Angel will be on it) and maybe others.
