Absolute Priority originally started out as a study-project between the singer Valerio Voliani (ex-Icycore) and the guitarist Federico Morella (ex-Celephais) in 2005. Having the need to evolve, they started searching for the right guys to form the band. After that, they started working on their debut album that was finally entitled “Hunter”.
What started out in 2011, Jon Durant’s solo work “Dance of the Shadow Planets” with Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree, Metallic Taste of Blood, Ex-Wise Heads), as a collaboration between these two artists came to hallmark a totally new album by Jon & Colin right after. The album was recorded in three studios, two in the US and one in the UK with file exchanging over the Internet by the two musicians. It was later when the percussionist Jerry Leake (Cubist, Natraj, Club d’Elf, Ken Schaphorst Big Band) and Geoff Leigh (Ex-Wise Heads, Henry Cow, Hatfield and the North) on flute came to complement Colin’s bass lines & rhythm programming plus Jon’s guitar melodies.

A short summary about the album's concept/story that spreads throught out the lyrics by Pekka Kainulainen, who wrote the lyrics for most recent AMORPHIS albums can be read below:
Fort Worth-based duo, PINKISH BLACK, has finished recording their upcoming album and Century Media debut, set tentatively for a Spring release.

Mastering will be done by James Plotkin.
After 14 successful years with 7 highly acclaimed studio albums, mastermind Tuomas Saukkonen has now decided to put an end to his dark/melancholic melodic death metal band BEFORE THE DAWN as well as to all of his other current projects, including BLACK SUN AEON, DAWN OF SOLACE and ROUTASIELU. “I’ve already been thinking about this for a few years”, Tuomas states. “At some point I realized I was keeping the band alive without feeling right anymore. I lost the passion to make music my own way. Now that BEFORE THE DAWN is done, it’s logical for me to clean the table completely and start building something from scratch again”.
