ABSENCE OF DESPAIR has made waves in the scene since their formation in 2008, but are set for national acclaim with Desolate. The album features 12 brand new, heavy-hitting anthems that showcase this hard-working, up-and-coming band’s undeniable raw talent. Ripping, intense metal grooves blended with addictive hooks poise ABSENCE OF DESPAIR’s Desolate as an undeniable metalcore favorite of 2019. Desolate immediately bursts into a brutal assault of fast-paced grooves on the album’s opener, “ESC”, and continues to traverse a melodic-yet-darkened metalcore landscape on tracks like “Bite My Tongue” and “Godkiller”. Anthemic tracks such as “Fearless” and “This Reckoning” solidify the band’s keen ability to write unforgettable hooks without sacrificing sinister riffage, while “Lost & Hopeless” provides an example of ABSENCE OF DESPAIR’s more extreme side. Beyond these tracks, there’s even more to love on Desolate.
