Absolva: Beyond Live (CD/DVD)

Rising British metallers Absolva made a huge impact with debut album Flames of Justice (including a five star review here at Sea of Tranquility) and, to keep impatient fans happy before the release of album number two, have issued this live CD/DVD set. Beyond Live was recorded at the band's sell-out headline show at Wizzfest, Belgium back in 2013 and finds the band in blistering form. No frills, muscular modern metal is firmly at the core of this band and none more so than with vocalist / guitarist Chris Appleton who has really begun to fine-tune his on stage performance as the DVD more than proves. Earthy and gritty, songs such as 'It Is What It Is' and 'From Beyond The Light' evidence the enormous chemistry that exists between Appleton, bassist Dan Bate and hard hitting drummer Martin McNee. The DVD is, as you would expect, done on a budget but there are still multiple camera angles and smooth editing that give a real sense of the raw energy and enthusiasm that goes into an Absolva live show.

Since the recording of this show Absolva have trimmed down to a three piece following the departure of second guitarist Tom Atkinson and have also confirmed a release date of 5th May for new album Anthems to the Dead. Mark the date on your calendar this is one album in 2014 that will be well worth the wait.
