The Absence release new album via M-Theory
THE ABSENCE's new album, “A Gift For The Obsessed,” further proves why All Music Guide called the group “the greatest Swedish melodic death metal band ever to emerge from Florida.” Mixed at Sweden's Ghost Ward Studios (Katatonia, Opeth) and mastered at the country's Panic Room (Watain, Scar Symmetry), and featuring a striking layout by HKB Design (Sepultura) and cover art by Russian graphic designer Stray Child, the album deftly mixes melodic death and thrash with incendiary guitar playing, pyrotechnic drumming and a sense of renewed hunger. Over its 10 blistering tracks – including a cover of Suicidal Tendencies' “You Can't Bring Me Down” featuring guest vocals by Soilwork / The Night Flight Orchestra front man Bjorn “Speed” Strid – the group not only shows no signs of rust whatsoever, but also sounds more potent than ever. THE ABSENCE is now managed by the legendary Jon “Jonny Z” Zazula and his partner Marsha Zazula, who founded Megaforce Records (which helped to launch the careers of Metallica, Anthrax, Testament and other seminal acts), for CraZed Management.
