“Oceans - I was anxious to hear it because in my humble opinion The Absence are one of the finest melodic death metal bands the U.S. has yet produced. To this day, their 2007 album Riders of the Plague remains high on my personal list of “most-played” releases ever. The song (Oceans) includes some wonderful dual-guitar harmonies and a sequence of guitar solos (both electric and acoustic) that are worth the price of admission all by themselves. I certainly hope “Oceans” is just a teaser of more music that will come from this band — and come quickly.”
