Absu at Maryland Deathfest 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)

For my money, one of the best black metal bands in the US will play NYC tonight at Saint Vitus, the first of a two-night stay for the "mythological occult metal" band Absu. Krallice will provide support tonight (4/10) and Tombs tomorrow (4/11). As discussed, the shows will feature two sets from the band that will span the entirety of their career. Tickets are still available for both nights OR you can take your chances at trying to win a pair for each! Details on the contest are below.
