Seems as though no band can stay away forever.
A few weeks ago, I start seeing photos pop up on social media of some Absolution record cover that I've never seen before. I wasn't sure what it was, but it certainly had me interested. I did a little research and discovered that apparently the band had recorded a few songs back in 2011, and they were finally being pressed to wax now. The question was, could the band still deliver?
I always approach these things with a heavy dose of skepticism, but damn, I enjoy being proven wrong. These four songs are great. It is being billed as "three new tracks, and one re-recorded classic", but I believe that two of those songs were on the band's '87 demo...so while I wouldn't necessarily call them "new", it is still great to have them recorded with some better production, because this whole thing sounds great.
