The Absence wants you to know that they're headed into the studio...finally. They were supposed to record this past March but were spending more time to make their songs sound as great as could be. They plan to hit the studio in early September. But they're offering a great contest for fans who can shred.

"I stated earlier this year that we had some Ideas to get the fans involved with the record. Well I guess its time to let the cat out of the bag. We have alot of fans that are guitar players. We thought it would be cool to let them show off the talents that they have. We are holding a contest for our fans to track a guest lead on our new record. We will be releasing the exact details on this contest next week. For now let me just give you the rough Idea of the contest. There will be a demo track section to a song that we will be releasing via-Internet that the fans will be able to download. They will then have to post the lead they come up with on youtube. We will be judging all the leads based on Originality, Melody and Technical ability. If you ask me I think that's pretty F'n cool."

We will keep you informed when the "rough details" have been smoothed out.

The title scared the crap out of me. Glad I read the article. I might have quit metal altogether.

Nah, I didn't mean that, but seriously.

The title scared me too! But I think this is such an awesome idea, if I could shred like The Absence I would submit a serious video, but I will at least try.
