Absence Of The Sacred

Absence Of The Sacred is a multi-national band, based in Singapore but consisting of members from Indonesia and the US as well as Singapore. Their style straddles the line between death and thrash metal, as the vocals are clearly in the death camp but the music sometimes sides toward traditional thrash in addition to some nice death riffing. The production is fine with a few rough edges, which is a good thing given the current trend toward pristine ProTools production jobs. This is a band worth checking out, as they manage to inject a touch of originality into the songs without losing focus.
