Absence of Ceramics delivers another quality underground release. This one sounds a bit heavier to my ears – or at least, there are more loud guitars on more songs here than the last two demos. Like the other demos, you can now get this at BandCamp with bonus tracks that sound like they were recorded at the same time period. The sound here, while still a bit heavier, is still the same alternative rock that they were known for on their other releases. I’m a fan, and have almost completed my set from BandCamp 🙂
