CD VERSION - JEWEL CASE W/LYRIC BOOKLET
NoLifeTilMetal Records and Sliptrick Records are proud to announce the brand new full length album from Florida based symphonic power metal band, ABSOLON.
Created by Ken Pike (of Malachia fame) in 2012, ABSOLON is an exciting and dynamic American heavy metal band. Combining one part traditional NWOBHM, one part European metal, and one part modern symphonic power metal. ABSOLON has managed to create a sound and style that is all their own, a new sound, yet a familiar one. If you’re into bands like Queensryche, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Kamelot, you are going to love ABSOLON.
This is the bands sophomore release entitled “A Portrait of Madness” a concept album that will truly appeal to those that love albums like “Operation Mindcrime.” Similarly, the bands debut album released independently, was a concept album entitled “Darkness Rising – The Tale of Derek Blackheart” which was released to much praise in the symphonic metal genre.
The album will be mixed and mastered by Thorsten Eligehausen, with cover art and graphics by Ryo Utasato Pike, while the layout and design will be completed by Scott Waters of NoLifeTilMetal Graphics.
Dropping today we have the brand new single and video entitled “This Is My Dream” in anticipation of the new release.
