BLR054: Absolutist – Traverse 7”
Traverse, the latest release from Ireland/Scotland-based blackened crust trio Absolutist, will see its official North American release through Broken Limbs. The three-track 7” is a long-awaited follow up to Absolutist’s debut 2012 full-length, Ave.
In a recent interview, when asked about Traverse, the band stated the following: “We are no longer all based in the same city, so we wanted to write some shorter and more intense songs to reflect this. As usual, we have taken on a few different labels from around the world, partly because they’re our friends, and also it’s nice to know the record will travel to different parts of the world that we maybe couldn’t get it to ourselves. But most of all, it’s just great friends helping out! The artwork was done by Denise (from Dogs and Vultures label, based in Dublin) and in her own words, ”it’s like the death of humans/civilisation and the re-wilding that happens when humans get the fuck out of the way and quit destroying everything!!!”
“With each release Ireland’s ABSOLUTIST are getting stronger and defining their sound more and more.” – CVLT Nation
