THE ABSENCE Unveil Video For “This Consuming Nocturne”

by Metal Jacket

The Florida-based melodic death metal group THE ABSENCE have unveiled a music video for “This Consuming Nocturne,”. The track appears on the group’s acclaimed new album “Coffinized,” out June 25th, on CD, digital and limited-edition smoke-colored vinyl via M-Theory Audio.
 
With the lyric video for ‘This Consuming Nocturne’ we went for a silent film visual, coupled with the song’s gloomy, yet triumphant atmosphere,” explains singer Jamie Stewart. “The track itself, also serves in part as a sequel to the song ‘Walking Shadows,’ released in 2019. Where ‘Walking Shadows’ speaks of a dark, self-reflective realization, ‘This Consuming Nocturne’ is about searching through the darkness itself, facing the lonely registers of night. It’s about finding your answers, waiting under the drape of twilight.

Hailed by Decibel for “leaving the majority of melodic death metal’s recent history chewing dust,” “Coffinized” is THE ABSENCE‘s follow-up to their acclaimed 2018 comeback record, “A Gift For The Obsessed.” That album was the band’s first in eight years, as well as their first for new label home M-Theory Audio. The time period between that album’s release and the COVID outbreak saw the band stay busy by taking their new songs to the road, touring alongside acts such as Deicide, Origin, Jungle Rot, Exmortus and Hatchet. The group’s members also stayed busy with outside endeavors, with drummer Jeramie Kling manning the kit for Venom Inc., bassist Mike Leon gigging with Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy and guitarist Taylor Nordberg playing with Massacre.
 
Those three band members took the experiences from their touring gigs and reconvened in the studio with Stewart – who has also been busy with his other project, Hot Graves – to put together the 11 tracks of pummeling death metal that compose “Coffinized.” The album was produced and engineered by Kling and Nordberg, mixed by Kling and mastered by Jonas Kjellgren (Immortal, Overkill, Scar Symmetry) at Sweden’s Black Lounge Studios. Its track listing is as follows:

  1. Coffinized
  2. Future Terminal
  3. Choirs of Sickness
  4. Radiant Devestation
  5. Cathedral Dawn
  6. Black Providence
  7. Discordia
  8. Treacherous
  9. This Consuming Nocturne
  10. Aperture Expands
  11. Faith in Uncreation
