MY ABSENCE BY NOW is an Italian project by Emiliano Santoro (also founder of doom/atmospheric post black metal/post rock Dead Summer Society and dark ambient Last Winter I Died, once guitarist in gothic/doom band How like a Winter), a musical entity where the mastermind wanted to explore new paths and experiment further.

As guest singers, Graziana Oddo (also singer in funky electronic band Elektrovice and once in rock electronic band Retina) and Andrea Maggioni (involved in several metal projects such as post black metal Icidar, funeral doom The Harrowing Yearning and technical deathcore Astral Emptiness) take part in the project.

MY ABSENCE BY NOW’s offer can be placed within the electronic dark synth ambient boundaries, but the soundscapes created are multiform, not easy to put in a specific genre: music is atmospheric and nostalgic, urban and cold, airy and dreamlike, melancholically caressed by female tunes but suddenly carved by harsh male vocals.

We could state that the upcoming debut album “Bliss” is your own, hidden place to contemplate your unstable sky, waiting for the brightness or the storm.
