“Only 19 years old, Absent Mindead steal the show with “Prozack” and “this is the song”. The most explosive, and at the same time, melodic achievment- in terms of guitar playing sound you can hear those days…”
www.mic.gr (for the “C.C.R.” compilation)

“…however, give the necessary credits, I must not forget the two highlights of the compilation which are the overdrived “prozack” by Absent Mindead and… Being a pleasant surprise due to their level as compositions.”

“The third of March brings us to the “Heart of Music” with one of the most talented bands in the scene, the powerful Absent Mindead who will be supported by misuse, semen of the sun… e.t.c.” Athinorama ( major weekly magazine of Athens/ www.athinorama.gr)

“The show began with Absent Mindead. Powerful compositions, blood-spitting vocals and an attitude on stage which leaves no one unmoved. The band seems quite into the gig thing due to their numerous live appearances during the past few months. Additionally during the last song the singer fell on the ground and spitted his soul out. Well done kids!”

“Next, while “Gagarin205” (the biggest venue in Athens) was almost packed, Absent Mindead got on stage with a new bass-player in their line-up. The threesome (guitar-bass-drums) presented for about half an hour its composition which sounded mostly like post-punk having Nirvana, Pixies and Placebo as major influences but in a more up-to-date outfit. At their highlights we must mention their excellent attitude on stage and the talented drummer whose playing takes the songs to another level.”

“It’s the second time I see Absent Mindead on stage which only supported my belief that the singer want to be Molko in the place of Molko…I would suggest,instead,for him to work on the production of Molto croissant (local patisserie) because the system does not need another replica. Their music didn’t move me enough to destruct me from the rilken hair dye they use and their fancy outfits”.
