Birmingham, UK. The unlikely birthplace of heavy metal and its more extreme siblings, grindcore and death metal. From BLACK SABBATH to NAPALM DEATH to BENEDICTION, Birmingham has bestowed upon the world some incredibly formidable, genre-defining music. With such a pedigree, is it any doubt that Birmingham is still churning out the brutality?
Enter ABSOLUTION. Originally formed by former BENEDICTION/CEREBRAL FIX bass player Paul Adams during the winter of 1991, the band unleashed a critically-acclaimed demo called ‘Remittance of Penance’. After nearly quarter-century of silence, the band reformed and released their 2015 ‘Temptations Of The Flesh’ EP.
After a few line up changes, the band have finally created their debut album ‘CONFESSIONS OF THE INIQUITOUS’ due for release at the end of the month via CDN Records. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Greg Chandler of funeral doom band ESOTERIC.
FOR FANS OF: NAPALM DEATH, BENEDICTION, MEMORIAM, BOLT-THROWER, CEREBRAL FIX
