ABSOLVA is a British heavy metal band, an inspired and modern take on the proud traditions of this genre.
The band includes brothers Chris Appleton (Blaze Bayley / Fury UK) on lead vocals and lead guitar, and Luke Appleton (Iced Earth / Fury UK) on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, together with the concrete backbone of drummer Martin McNee (Blaze Bayley / Fury UK) and bassist Karl Schramm (Blaze Bayley).
The members of Absolva have toured alongside some of the biggest names in the rock/metal genre including Saxon, Iced Earth, Michael Schenker, Y&T, & of course Blaze Bayley (Iron Maiden singer 1994-1999) who has recruited Chris, Martin and Karl as his touring and recording band.
Absolva rose from the ashes of Fury UK in 2012 when Luke Appleton first joined Iced Earth as bassist and Absolva’s latest double album, ‘Defiance’ (via Rocksector Records, July 2017), is their fifth release, following studio records ‘Flames of Justice’ (2012), ‘Anthems to the Dead’ (2014), ‘Never A Good Day to Die’ (2015) and live album/DVD ‘Beyond Live’ (2013).
With a heavy touring schedule, the members of Absolva have become recognised as some of the hardest working musicians around, playing extensive tours as the backing band with Blaze Bayley and also of course for the high energy and professionalism of their own headline shows. An Absolva show is both captivating and outstanding, as should be expected from a band with this experience, pedigree and background.
