BandMetalRock

A heart-pounding mix of melodic metal with both brutal screaming and clean singing vocals. Definitely something to bang your head to.

Biography

Since their formation in 2004, the band has met adversity from the beginning. When their first show was almost ended before it began because their original name was deemed “inappropriate,” they did something many wouldn’t; they put their music before their egos. They took on a new alias, recognizing that what was important was being heard, being appreciated for their talent, a talent that would garner appreciation under any name. As luck would have it, in a hurried stumble for a new title, they happened upon a powerful one. Absent took the stage and has been blowing the doors off of Metal’s norms ever since. With a unique mixture of pulse pounding beats and ear-soothing harmony, Absent shows the world why Metal is cool again. Brad demonstrates his tremendous vocal range while rounding out Todd’s guitar riffs, with Chris providing his years of experience and recording engineer’s ear to the band’s sound, all the while pounding away at the Ludwig drums and Sabian cymbols that surround him. Miah demonstrates how a good bassist can pull a melody to the next level by satisfying the need for underlying lows in order to fully appreciate the most prominate highs. These four Green Mountain Boys do more than rock, they give Vermonters something to be proud of.
