Quick introductory interview.

Interview with In Absenthia.
1. Who are you and how did the band get started?

Hey, we are In Absenthia from southern Brazil! On the guitars and vocals we have Bruno Braga. On the keys we have Gélisson Amaral. On the bass guitar we have Will Farias, and on the drums and clean vocals there is Rick Soares. Bruno and Gélisson have been long time friends and share common musical interests and tastes, so they looked for other two components. After trying out with different members and formations, the band got stable with the four mentioned above.

2. Why did you choose Doom, and how would you describe your style?

Braga has had the ambition to form a band that was able to capture the painful aspect of traditional doom metal, the atmospheres of funeral doom and the sonic landscapes of gothic metal for quite a while. I guess this is pretty much how In Absenthia sounds.

3. What would you consider to be the high point of your career so far?

Certainly it is the recording of our first EP, called Amongst The Lovers, containing three of the band's first compositions.

4. Which three bands most influenced you?

We always mention Novembers Doom, Daylight Dies and Swallow The Sun.

5. What are your plans for the near future?

The goals are to record a full album showing improvements in the band's musical identity, as well as to broadcast our music and to play live as much as possible. 6. If there is anything you would like to add, the last words are yours.

Thanks for the opportunity you've given us to show our music! If anyone wishes to know your sound, you can check our EP through these links:
