Toronto's Black Absinthe are getting set to release their upcoming debut albumEarly Signs of Denial on May 13, 2016 and was produced by Dave Baksh (Cross Dog, The Mahones) out of the Gentleman’s Den studio in Pickering, ON .
“This was our first foray into recording in a studio environment plus working with a producer and mixer. Having a team of people around us helped us produce better songs at a higher quality to give our fans the chance to hear what we’re truly about without the barrier of poor recordings. It’s our jump from the basement to the studio, the raw energy is still there, but there’s an added level of detail to each track. We wanted to make a significant jump forward in quality and songwriting plus for fans who have been following us, we think they’ll be pleasantly surprised.” comments vocalist/guitarist Jack Cerre.
Black Absinthe reveal the album name:
"Once the songs on this album were finished we were looking for a title that felt in tune with the songs as a whole. We consulted a St.John’s Ambulance First Aid Reference Guide for possible names. Beating out contenders like ‘Penetrating Chest Wound,’ ‘Bites From Ticks,’ or ‘Putting on Dressings,’ we decided on Early Signs Of Denial. It captures the pessimistic nature of a lot of the lyrics and we think suits it sonically too. It’s a metal record, Early Signs of Denial seemed like it should be the name of a metal album!"

We all have them. Those favourite albums from certain bands that we would love to hear played live in full. Whether it's Aerosmith doing Toys In The Attic, Judas Priest doing British Steel, Anthrax doing Among The Living or Rush doing Moving Pictures, every band, old and new gets to the point where they end up performing one or more of their classic albums in their entireties. I haven't seen too many shows like that, but whenever one of my favourite bands plays one of their albums in its entirety, it's always awesome because as a fan, I don't want to just hear all the hits all the time.
The shows I've seen where albums were played in full were Megadeth playing Rust In Peace, Slayer playing Seasons In The Abyss in 2010 (both in the same show) and Testament doing The Legacy and The New Order (also in one show) last year, but down below are some examples of some other albums that I, and I'm sure many other fans of the bands listed down below, would love to hear live in full.
