New album "Khronocracy" out on March 8th!
The Absense are a music project completely free and pagan. They love rural, dirty sounds and the mix of clean vocals with distortion symbolizes a door opening on the glorious past of romantic European movements. The lyrics mainly talk about ancient gods, but there also are personal and intimate facts. The band was initially just founder Luca Siri and his brother, Michele, but now it has expanded and contains two new members, the singer Gianna Pinotti and the drummer Luca Pagliari.
The new mini-album is entitled Khronocracy and is a concept-album about “time”. All the song have twin lead voices from Luca and Gianna, except for Storm, which is a harder, more straight forward affair. Musically, the album is extremely acoustic with lyrics that talk about the specific passing of time.
