ABSINTHIUM "One For The Road" /CD/



Debut full-length album by Italian Heavy/Thrash Metal band.
After a couple demos, band ready to unleash their debut that gives a nod to traditional Heavy Metal/Power Metal with a quite obvious Thrash edge, which remind bands like Iced Earth, Annihilator and more recent Megadeth, but also the later Angel Dust quite frequently, with their own sound.
The songs are well composed and have the necessary variety to stay interesting from start to finish. The most striking point about this band are the solid guitars. The riffs are very strong and guitarist Franco Buonocore delivers many strong melodies and solos and constantly makes sure to keep you focused. Also on vocal matters the band has a good vocalist in Alessandro Granato, who stands his ground on both the high and lower regions.
“One For The Road” is a solid and sturdy debut by these gentlemen, and definitely worth to get it in your collection!
