After the tentative Barathrum (1993), Texan band Absu, fronted by drummer and vocalist Proscriptor (Russ Givens) and featuring a synthesizer, coined an erudite and epic black-metal style devoted to esoteric and exotic themes on their second album Sun of Tiphareth (1995).

The Third Storm of Cythraul (1997) was a transitional work. Their most successful album was Tara (2001), also their most violent work.

Absu's guitarist Equitant (Raymond Dillard Hefun) released the solo albums Zeit (Tarot Productions, 2006) and Konstruckteur (Tarot Productions, 2006) in a synth-pop vein.

Absu's drummer Proscriptor's released solo albums of progressive-rock, and played in Melechesh and Equimanthorn.

Absu's Equitant and Proscriptor also played in Starchaser Network that released Starchaser Network (Tarot Productions, 2007).

Absu (Candlelight, 2009), the band's first album in eight years and the first one without Shaftiel and Equitant, veered towards more conventional prog-rock.

Ditto for Abzu (Candlelight, 2011), the dominant sound being a mellotron, from opener Earth Ripper to the 14-minute suite Song For EA.
