Tampa, Florida's THE ABSENCE has announced the addition of former YETI drummer Chris Pistillo to the group's ranks.

Commented THE ABSENCE guitarist Patrick Pintavalle: "[Chris] may not be as well known… yet. However, he is wicked awesome on the skins and he actually plays blast beats and has super quick double bass and if he decides to stick around be apart of this band I am positive that the next record will crush souls."

THE ABSENCE recently posted its cover of TESTAMENT's "Into the Pit" on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off the group's sophomore CD, "Riders of the Plague", which was released on August 7 via Metal Blade Records. The album was recorded at Mana Studios in Florida with Swedish producer Jonas Kjellgren (SCAR SYMMETRY, CARNAL FORGE). Mixing duties were handled by Jonas at his Black Lounge studios in Avesta, Sweden. The CD features guest appearances by guitarists James Murphy (DEATH, TESTAMENT), Jonas Kjellgren, Per Nilsson (SCAR SYMMETRY) and Santiago Dobles (AGHORA) as well as guest vocals by Jonas Granvik (WITHOUT GRIEF, EDGE OF SANITY).
