BLACK ABSINTHE Premiere New Video “The Wild” via Bravewords
EP Out Now “Early Signs of Denial”
BLACK ABSINTHE‘s powerful heavy riffs and bass lines are reminiscent of classic thrash and new wave British heavy metal with a range of progressive to classic rock influence. Surfacing from the basement last year, the Toronto, ON heavy metal trio unleashed their debut album “Early Signs of Denial” produced by Sum 41’s Dave Baksh (Cross Dog, The Mahones) plus was mixed and mastered by Frank Gryner (Rob Zombie- Hillbilly Deluxe). The album was the band’s first professional recording to follow their three self recorded EPs Live At Coalition (2014), Noise Complaint (2014) and Augusta (2012).
Taking a break from relentless touring of Ontario and Quebec during this summer, the band shot their latest video “The Wild” on the shores of Lake Ontario, inviting friends and fans to join them on a pirate ship where the outcome was rocking the boat, walking the plank and one hell of a party!
Teaming up with Bravewords.com, the band is proud to exclusively premiere “The Wild” at the following link: http://www.bravewords.com/news/exclusive-black-absinthe-premier-the-wild-video
The band comments on the video:
“We are excited to showcase our new video, ‘The Wild’, for fans both new and old. This song is the headbanging party track off our latest album ‘Early Signs Of Denial’ and we wanted a video to reflect that intensity. So we gathered a crew of our fans and friends from the Toronto music scene, rented a pirate themed boat intended for children, prepared and consumed some pre-sailing cocktails, and played a live show for all on board. The video was shot by Toronto based videographer/photographer Katherine Kwan (IG: kawaiiathy) who did a fantastic job capturing the look and spirit of what we wanted for the song as well as showcasing some great shots of the city skyline. The day, the show, and all the people involved with the video we say thank you! And for the rest of you, turn it up, grab a drink, and enjoy ‘The Wild’!”

“Produced by Sum 41’s Dave Baksh, the new record serves as both a cleaner and heavier presentation of the sound the band have been honing since their formation in 2011. Running six tracks in length, the LP explores fear, corruption and overcoming disparity within their blend of classic and contemporary metal stylings.” – Exclaim!
“The whole record is classic metal & deserves to catapult this band over the wall & into the rooms of many. This is a band that doesn’t know the meaning of the words over play. Everything is understated, controlled & precise. Black Absinthe are not trying to re-invent the wheel but add a new spoke.” – All About The Rock
“It is one quite impressive EP that goes all out to impress. It is hard to imagine that just three guys could make such an impact, but they do! Quite a robust six tracker that is distinct and captivating!” – RAM Zine
“From the opening track “The Wild” to “Pigs” to my personal favorite “Winter” the band works their way through everything from classic rock all the way to hardcore…What Black Absinthe does is make music that comes across live; music that will bring a crowd to their feet, but contemplate the lyrics after the show is all said and done. It’s a tricky feat to bring that across on a studio recording. “Early Signs of Denial” nails it and shows the band must be a great time on stage.” – We Love Metal
