Absolva is a classic metal band, based in Manchester, UK, an inspired & modern take on British heavy metal. Formed in May absolva2012 by Chris Appleton & Martin McNee (both of Fury UK), together with Dan Bate (Point Blank Fury).

Chris & Martin had featured together especially since October 2007 as part of successful classic metal trio Fury UK, a band which clearly established itself at the forefront of the UK scene. From inception to May 2012, Fury UK, signed to Rocksector Records, released 3 albums, 1 EP & 1 DVD. The band also toured UK & Europe extensively as a headline act, played Bloodstock, Hammerfest & PPM Festivals, & toured as guests with Iced Earth, Saxon, Y&T, Michael Schenker & Blaze Bayley. When Fury UK bassist Luke Appleton (brother of Chris) joined American powerhouse metallers Iced Earth, Fury UK was put on hold whilst Chris & Martin decided to form Absolva.

Amid a wave of expectation a debut show was played at SOS Festival on 22nd July 2012 to a resounding welcome, closely followed by 4 shows in August with Iced Earth – Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow & Bloodstock Open Air.

A debut album “Flames Of Justice” was released on 5th November along with a 16 date headline tour including a special show at London Underworld, a Manchester album launch & various other shows in the UK & Europe. The “Flames Of Justice” Tour : Part Two took place February-May 2013 & totalled 33 shows including UK & European headline shows plus Hammerfest, plus 8 European dates as special guests on the Michael Schenker Temple Of Rock & Lovedrive Reunion Tour.

After a small number of UK & European festival shows Absolva will embark on a further European Tour entitled “Beyond Live” to mark & promote the release of a live DVD & CD of the same name, recorded at the sell-out headline show at Wizzfest, Belgium earlier in 2013. This tour begins on 31st August & finishes on 9th November before the band enters the studio to begin recording a 2nd studio album.
