ABSOLACE “Fractals”

I got a soft spot for Soundgarden and Temple Of The Dogs. So sue me for thinking that Absolace are simply brilliant. That they come from a place that isn’t the most open just makes this so much of an experience. The United Arab Emirate might not be the most common place to find hard music coming from but Absolace prove that with great determination you can survive even in the most hostile environments. Musically this could be described as a light version of Tool or perhaps a continuation of A Perfect Circle. It is in that region this album moves. It paints with broad strokes. Gently sweeping through the subtle to the chaotic in one move. Making this a journey that takes you up high as well as down deep. Never losing sight of the end result. Never letting you down as a listener. Anders Ekdahl
