"Opaque Eyes Seal Our Fate" (Self-produced)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Absent Society is a well done, sturdy showing by a band with plenty of raw talent. The music is powerful and full of strength, filling the CD with explosive musical expression. The vocals however, are strained and difficult to get used to. Strangely enough, that really kind of adds to the coolness of this band. 

Not only does Absent Society rock, I really like the title of this CD: "Opaque Eyes Seal Our Fate." I don't know what it means, I just know I like it.

What Absent Society really needs is a record company to give them enough money to get into a studio with a real producer. The attitude and talent is there, but with a bit more polish and the proper guidance and marketing, this band could be on their way.

Absent Society: Mike Brinkman - bass, drums; Justin Burdt - guitar; Jason Everett - vocals; Matt Haynes - guitar.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
