Aabsinthe biography
AABSINTHE was formed in Saint Etienne, France, in 2001. the founding members were Pierre Arnoux (guitars / vocals), Hugo de Villoutreys (guitars), and Sylvain Navarro (drums). Romain Gayton (bass) and Romain Chacornac (keyboards) joined in 2003.

The band's music was at first melodic progressive death metal. As such, it got a good reception from the metal community. After the first shows in 2004, the outfit released their first full-length, their self-produced "The Loss of Illusions", in 2005. It was met with good reviews from the media, and after the band's contract-signing with Rupture Music, it was released to a bigger public in 2006.

2007 marks the year of AABSINTHE's second album, "In Search Of Light". The music, though still melodic progressive death metal, is more atmospheric, more emotional, darker and more complex, at times getting closer to the post-metal subgenre.

Why this artist must be listed in :
AABSINTHE's music is highly original, as it combines aspects of extreme/tech metal and elements of post-metal. The musicianship is top-notch, and the ideas and concepts are unique. Their inclusion in PA's database has been approved by the Prog-Metal Team and deservedly so.
