Absolva Announces Debut Album "Flames Of Justice" Release

Absolva is set to release debut album "Flames Of Justice" on November 5th, with pre-orders available at this location. You can also check out the album's title track in the player below. The band also issued the following statement about its sound and history:

"Absolva is a classic metal band, based in Manchester, UK, & featuring twin lead guitar in the great British tradition. Formed in May 2012 by Chris Appleton & Martin McNee (both of Fury UK), joined by Tom Atkinson (Vice) & Dan Bate (Point Blank Fury).

"Chris & Martin had featured together since October 2007 as part of successful classic metal trio Fury UK, a band which clearly established itself at the forefront of the UK scene. From inception to May 2012, Fury UK, signed to Rocksector Records, released 3 albums, 1 EP & 1 DVD. The band also toured UK & Europe extensively as a headline act, played Bloodstock, Hammerfest & PPM Festivals, & toured as guests with Iced Earth, Saxon, Y&T, Michael Schenker & Blaze Bayley.

"When Fury UK bassist Luke Appleton (brother of Chris) joined American powerhouse metallers Iced Earth, Fury UK was put on hold whilst Chris & Martin decided to form Absolva. Chris Appleton's reputation as an outstanding lead guitarist is well-known but a key part of the newly-formed Absolva is the twin lead guitar attack inspired by the likes of Iron Maiden & Thin Lizzy, now taken to a heavier edge akin to Judas Priest & Megadeth. Second lead guitarist, Tom Atkinson - from Manchester band Vice - was immediately recruited & after a run of auditions Dan Bate of Midlands-based band Point Blank Fury was chosen as the ideal man for the bass guitar role. Absolva was ready to be announced to the world on 23rd May 2012.

"Amid a wave of expectation a debut show was played at SOS Festival on 22nd July 2012 to a resounding welcome, closely followed by 4 shows in August with Iced Earth - Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow & Bloodstock Open Air."
