Every great story has a prologue. Before the mighty ABSU, there were two occult metal manifestations: Dolmen and Magus, which together helped forge one of the most well know acts in the underground today.
DARK SYMPHONIES / THE CRYPT is proud to present continued cooperation with ABSU members Proscriptor and Equitant with a deluxe CD edition of Dolmen – On The Eve Of War and Magus – Ruminations Of Debauchery. Both releases will feature the original cover art and layout elements as the vinyl edition. Also included will be the the original cover illustration by Kris Verwimp from the out of print Crypt 2-LP box set edition.
Dolmen makes their CD debut and includes an unreleased cover version of Slayer’s “Black Magic.” Magus features the original unreleased mix of “Ruminations…” as well as the 1992 demo “Lines That Formed Hexagrams.” All songs were mastered for vinyl from the original analog and dat sources. This marks the CD debut for both Magus – Lines That Formed Hexagrams and Dolmen – On the Eve of War.
Fans of ABSU will be offered with two amazing, cult metal releases which helped manifest one of the greatest underground acts of the 90’s!
