The Absence

Among the recent influx of modern North American melodic death metal bands is The Absence. Brought together in late 2001 by a distaste forthe demise of the once legendary Florida metal scene and a love for Scandinavian metal, riffs and melodies began to form. For two years theband opened for bands such as Mastodon, Six Feet Under, Cannibal Corpse, Immolation, Dark Tranquility, Nile, and others. Finally in 2005, theband graced the metal scene with their debut, From Your Grave. Full of shrieked vocals, melodic guitar harmonies and solos, heavy riffs, and adirect connection to Swedish melodic death metal, The Absence breathes new life into American melodic death.
