from Vampires by In Absentia

supported by


Following up on the single ‘Insanity’ released on Tinnitorturous earlier this year, In Absentia continues the exploration of energetic gothic themed EBM, this time in the sinister world of the undead. In Absentia celebrates their 30 years anniversary in 2020 and is currently working on a new album called ‘Reanimated’ to be released in 2021.

Bonus track ‘Vampires (Heiniche Remix)' is included on Bandcamp.



Moving through dark landscapes
Of glass and steel
Inhabited by blurry shapes
Mindless and without will

We are dwelling in the shadows
Of what could have been
Our minds began to necrose
As our blood turned unclean

Chorus 1:
Hide from the sun
Avoid the cruel light
Our lives are shunned
As we seek into the night

The flickering screens
Show stories of despair
Nothing remains unseen
Within the vampires lair

We close our eyes
As reality hurts
To escape our frights
We will embrace the dirt

Roaming through the tombs
Over victims left to rot
We crave for your wounds
To satisfy our lust for blood

We suck the life from others
Until nothing is left
While all hope is smothered
We await the kiss of death

Hide for the sun
Avoid the cruel light
Our lives are shunned
As we seek into the night
With the marks of the one
On our cold pale skin
Our will is gone
Reduced to nothing
