New Music Video “Absent” Issued By The Vision Ablaze

Danish progressive metal quartet The Vision Ablaze have premiered a new video single for the song “Absent,” which opens their most recent album “Youtopia.”

The album was released in September last year via Mighty Music, and was produced by Jacob Hansen (Aborted, Mercenary, Volbeat, Pretty Maids).

About the story behind the track and how it complements the rest of the material on Youtopia, the band commented: “‘Absent’ is the first song on our album and it embodies many of the themes on the album; seeking truth, shattering illusions, questioning authorities and waking up. ‘Absent’ is the story of someone who must transcend the human illusion and save himself and humanity from the restraint of lies and deceit.”

For the rest of the year The Vision Ablaze has planned tours in Demark, Sweden and Germany. Talking more about their plans, they said: “We’ve recently switched to wireless in-ears and it’s the first step in making a smother live show. It enables us to control many important variables in our setup. We’re also planning a video for ‘Monster’ too – which will be the 6th video for the album.”

It has been 4 years since the release of ‘The Fire Is Mine’ and we cannot wait to top that record with the upcoming EP and album! The material sounds like a power metal avalanche with a freight train going through it. This album is all about harnessing what power metal really means to us and kicking the listeners ass while they sing along to the hooks and melodies.”
