Powerful sounding bass guitars along with some psychedelic elements and clean playing start off the album before going into a heavier sludge metal direction while the clean vocals also gives the songs more of a stoner and traditional metal feeling and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
When guitar solos and leads a re utilized they are done in a 70's metal style while the riffs also bring in the heaviness of funeral doom metal along with some clean playing and spoken word parts also being used briefly as well as some mid paced riffing also being used at times and as the album progresses the guitar leads start bringing in a more modern and atmospheric style.
Absent plays a musical style that takes psychedelic, stoner, sludge, heavy and funeral doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of t heir own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover chaoism, ophiolatry, misery, and altered states of consciousness themes.
In my opinion Absent are a very great sounding mixture of psychedelic, stoner, sludge and funeral doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ophidian Womb" and "Funeral Son". 8 out of 10.
