Absolva are described as a classic Metal band, featuring twin lead guitar in the great British tradition and consist of Chris, Martin McNee (both of Fury UK), Tom Atkinson (Vice) and Dan Bate (Point Blank Fury).

Fury UK are not over however and Luke remains a member, however the band are 'on ice' for the remainder of 2012.

Chris commented earlier this year: "Right now, after completion of the current UK and European tour dates, the immediate plan is for Fury UK to take an extended break for the remainder of 2012 before reviewing plans for 2013. Rest assured the band will be back with the same line-up of Chris Appleton (lead vocals/lead guitar), Martin McNee (drums), Luke Appleton (bass/backing vocals) and when they are back, it's going to be special!

"Meanwhile, Chris and Martin are forming a new band..."

Fans can expect the band's setlist to include a small selection of familiar Fury UK songs, plus plenty of material from 'Flames Of Justice'.

The band has additionally accepted an invitation to headline next years' Wizzfest in Belgium, March 2013.


WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.
