Absent In Body (feat. current and former members of Amenra, Neurosis, Sepultura) make their Relapse Records debut with new album Plague God, out on March 25, 2022. Today, the band have shared the second single, “Sarin“.
“Humanity its demise as a self fulfilling prophecy. The onslaught of information is not manageable for any empathic organism in this Universe. Driven into a corner, overtaken by our own self-destructive ways, Nature sends its beasts to settle things for good. Restore balance by fire, water, earth and wind. Until eventually mankind will eat itself. Facts are no longer facts, and Science appears to have been driven from its throne, by new gods of unintelligible information. The story told by a new breed, all awhile Sarin will sleep in your lungs tonight.”
“The scream is mine. So loud.
But no one came. A funeral pyre.
Flames so high they burn the sky.
The awful pain.
Everywhere. On Gods domain.
The coming rain. It will swallow everything.”
“Sarin” is also a direct homage to Dwid Hellion, whom has written a song with Integrity of the same title, without him we would never have been introduced to one another, and AIB would never have seen the light of day.”
