BAND BIO:

Absolute Blackness are two brothers from the city of Thessaloniki in Greece , Panagiotis (born 22/7/1980) and John (born 16/5/1984), they generally play metal music with influences from Black Sabbath , Orange Goblin , Zakk Wylde , Nightstalker , Spiritual Beggars but they're also influenced by groups like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin .

The start ...
Back in 2000 Johnny bought an Epiphone SG and started learning how to play , about 6 months later Giotis started singing and tried to learn how to play the guitar after he bought an Epiphone Les Paul ,in years another SG Epiphone came , a Stagg B-Bass , many BOSS pedals , two Marshall Amps , an SG Gibson , a Blackstar Amp and many Shure mics .

2005...
After trying to find a suitable name for their band they came to the name "Neutral Position" and produced an unofficial demo that included 3 tracks.

2006...
Cause of the "neutrality" of the name of the band they considered changing the name to a more suitable name closer to their thoughts and play style...Absolute Blackness was born!

2007...
Their first album "Across" had an unofficial release including 8 tracks , since then they keep writing until today , through the years they have created a large pool of unfinished songs and creative riffs from which they try to take the best of them and produce some good music with everyday new influences and inspirations.

2011...
"The Room of Doom"...the place where Absolute Blackness records their music is a reality. Recording ,mixing ,writing ,graphics design and everything that has to do with the band has found its home.

THOUGHTS:

"If you dig crunchy chugging riffs, neck-snapping solos and immense groove then look no further than Greece three-piece Absolute Blackness. Combining an undying love for bone-jarring heaviness, the band shoves meat and potatoes metal right into your earhole. I am still trying to pin down who I think vocalist Giotis Kuimas sounds like. Maybe Rob Zombie meets Lee Dorian with a trembling vibrato. All I know is that it sounds pretty fucking cool. Doomy, southern-tinged sludge with mind-altering psychedelia. Three words pretty much sum it all up...Absolute Fucking Blackness!"
