EUROPEAN TOUR + INTRONAUT + SHINING (NOR)

We couldn’t be happier to announce that we will be touring Europe this September in the unfathomable company of Norwegian blackjazz rebels Shining and LA post-prog masters Intronaut.

Our last European tour was so incredible that we can hardly wait to hit the road again… This new adventure will bring A YEAR WITH NO SUMMER to more than ten countries, through twenty epic shows that you will find very hard to forget.

If you’re also a festival-goer, remember that we’ll be playing at Be Prog! My Friend and Resurrection Fest in July, side by side with names such as Iron Maiden, Opeth and Enslaved.

Check out all of our upcoming live dates here. See you on the road!

Presenting our new lineup

POSTED IN A Year With No Summer, News | TAGS : , , ,

Here’s our new lineup in all its decadent glory, as captured by the gifted Sergio Albert some weeks ago at a fancy club in the capital. So, it is about time we made it official: everyone say hello to Eaten Roll I, our new guitar player.

 

Already a big fan of the band when the chance came up, she fought her way through more than 40 applicants and won – despite never having picked up an electric guitar in her entire life. A crafty designer and a local psychedelic folk starlet, she is the perfect addition to our line-up, and you are going to hear her roar in the near future. Zer0 will be sorely missed, but Seerborn Ape Tot is in charge of the synths now, so you will still be getting 100% Obsidian Kingdom, as always.

Times change and the seasons roll on by, but this one will be A YEAR WITH NO SUMMER… See you very soon on the road!

A YEAR WITH NO SUMMER IS OUT NOW

POSTED IN A Year With No Summer, News | TAGS : , ,

A spiked cocktail of city spleen, conspiranoia and personal trauma; blue like the stagnant water in the pool of a marooned holiday resort and heavy like the silence after the next radiant apocalypse.

Produced by the much sought after Jaime Gómez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Ghost) and featuring the stellar performances of Attila Csihar (Mayhem, Sunn O)))) and Kristoffer Rygg (Ulver), our newest album flirts elegantly with alternative rock, electronics and extreme metal to provide you with a full-bodied and unforgettable experience.

Obsidian Kingdom - A Year With No Summer Digipak edition

A YEAR WITH NO SUMMER is out right now via Season of Mist and it comes in three different and exclusive formats, each one curated by the Spanish design star-combo Ritxi Ostáriz (Ihsahn, Leprous) and Elena Gallén (Reebok, VICE). Get you limited copy now from our online store.

 

“A decisive step in a different direction to see just how far the path of experimentation can take Obsidian Kingdom’s music.” SPUTNIK MUSIC

“A smoldering conceptual journey through a world that’s just beyond real, so close that you can feel the chill on your skin.” ANGRY METAL GUY

“Obsidian Kingdom are clearly playing the long game, and for this they should be rightly praised.” PROG

PRE-ORDER the album now

 

The structures of our youth are disintegrating, and the truths we took for granted have been left to decay. In the light of the imminent collapse, why not celebrate change with a thunderous explosion? Isn’t the end of all things the most beautiful sight to behold? DARKNESS will ask you these questions, and many more.

This one could be A YEAR WITH NO SUMMER…

IGNIS FATUUS REMIX

POSTED IN News, Remix | TAGS : , , , ,

Our dear Maud the Moth kindly asked us to remix her song IGNIS FATUUS; so we drowned her voice in drones and murky synths, of course.

Catch us both live next April at OBSIDIAN KINGDOM + maud the moth!
