Texas black metal band Absu have announced their break-up after 30 years. Lead vocalist and drummer Proscriptor McGovern posted the news to the band's Facebook:

After meager deliberation and zero remorse, I have decided to dissolve ABSU after three decades of existence. Collectively and universally speaking, this decision is finite due to insoluble circumstances, which has led to this ultimate result. No amount of time, exertion, formula or fashion can alter my verdict.

Refusing to further comment on the subject, I leave thee with the following enchantment:

{Vii} For there are bitter waters of Chaos held immobile under (the) ground – And the Sovereigns, who personify them, reign over Opacities and Beyond.

[II] Beseech these All-Begetters in darkness, outside the circles of time. In Chaos’ sleight of hand, the Deep will respond.”

{Vi} Never Blow Out The Eastern Candle –
Proscriptor McGovern (Russ R. Givens)

This statement comes over a year after guitarist Melissa Moore, fka Vis Crom, said she "lost my band when I came out to them" as transgender.
