PROSCRIPTOR MCGOVERN’S APSÛ signs with Agonia Records

Agonia Records  today confirms the signing of the new, Texas-based “mythological occult metal” act  Proscriptor McGovern’s Apsû . The debut/self-titled album’s release date is to be announced in the latter portion of 2020.

When drummer/vocalist  Proscriptor  ( Russ R. Givens ) dissolved  Absu  on January 27th 2020, his main intention was to splinter the 30-year old faction into a renewed songwriting concord.  Proscriptor McGovern’s Apsû  is the obvious by-product of that chemical breakdown and securing the ranks is continuing bassist/vocalist  Ezezu  and new guitar virtuoso  Vaggreaz .  

Proscriptor  says of the resurgence: “I want people to know that I disbanded Absu to form Proscriptor McGovern’s Apsû with underpinning intention, despite the inclusion of my name, as an armorial bearing to pay tribute to the former sanctuary. I do not consider myself the band’s leader, but more of an administrator. I may be an oppressive commissioner, but Proscriptor McGovern’s Apsû is an equal, collective unit.”

Proscriptor  continues regarding the album’s lyrical approach: “This album is written for those who are curious and unwearied in their quest of arcane knowledge. I have (with vast exertion and detriment of time and space) collected knowledge deemed, in regard to my subject theories of ‘mythological occult metal:’ from Thelemic Magick and The Zos Vel Thanatos Formula to Fractal Ontology and (obviously) Near East Mythology.”

The album is being chronicled at studios around the world with final mixing being handled in Dallas, Texas by  J.T. Longoria  and mastering by   Karl Daniel Lidén  in Sweden. The album also features guest appearances from  Vorskaath  ( Zemial ),  Ross Friedman  ( Ross The Boss ),  Jeff Becerra  ( Possessed ),  Rune Eriksen  ( Aura Noir / Vltimas ),  Alex Colin-Tocquaine  ( Agressor ) and  The Dark  ( Agatus ). To assemble the album’s packaging with ten separate portrait illustrations, the band has re-commissioned the expertise of renowned Polish artist  Zbigniew Bielak .

Final track listing for   “Proscriptor McGovern’s Apsû”   is:

I. Amenta: Accelerando: Azyn including Hierophantasmal Expounder
