Our new album is finally written. We will start recording at Orgone Studios in London with Jaime Gómez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Ulver, Primordial) as producer before the end of summer, and it will be out on Season of Mist in 2016. We just wanted you to know that we can hardly wait for you to experience our new songs.
You will also spot a few different faces in our latest portrait, as recently pictured by the gifted photographer Taya Uddin (Terrorizer). We kindly ask you to give a warm welcome to our new, young and talented members: Seerborn Ape Tot on guitars and Om Rex Orale on bass. You’ll meet them both in person before soon…
Enjoy the last days of summer,
Obsidian Kingdom MMXV
How much would you like to watch us perform an ad-lib set of drone-grunge electronica from the nineties? With a DJ? IN A MUSEUM?
Featuring Brunetto on beats and samplers.
Can’t wait to repeat this!
UFIP Cymbals are some of the top cymbal artisans in the world, and it makes us very proud to announce that Ojete Mordaza II is now endorsed by them. Their top class metals are a perfect match for our style – dark, rich and multi-layered. This collaboration will take Obsidian Kingdom’s music to the next level for sure, and we cannot wait for you to hear how good they sound.
New record soon, maybe?
The next Drone Set exhibition will take place at the Center of Contemporary Culture in Barcelona (CCCB), with Brunetto (Freelastica) as our special guest. For those of you who still doubt that we are an overrated, hipster and arty-farty metal band: don’t forget to come to the show next June 4!
Tickets are already on sale here. See you there!

Not long ago, Rockzone Mag kindly asked us to produce a cover version of our favorite alternative rock artist, in order for us to be included in their “Bipolar Sessions #2″. We picked Nirvana. Our producer chose “Breed”. Here’s the result.
Our intention was to lay low before the next album comes out, but some things we just cannot say no to… stoked to be playing Prog Power Europe in the Netherlands this fall!
Prog Power Europe tickets can be bought now here.
We’re back from our amazing European tour with Sólstafir, Sahg and EATW; and the only thing that keeps the merciless post tour blues away is reading all these live reports… More than fifty journalist have wrote in nine different languages that you should have been there!
“A solid and intriguing performance by a band I hope to see again in the not too distant future.”
“Eine spannende Gratwanderung zwischen dem, was stilistisch erlaubt und möglich ist!”
“Elképesztően kaotikus, egy vérbő hardcore zenekart megidéző vehemenciával előadott dalaikat nem nagyon lehetett elkülöníteni egymástól”
“Il est vraiment rare de voir de tels extrêmes pour un même groupe!”
“Po pierwszych dźwiękach zagranych przez Obsidian Kingdom wiedziałam, że nie będę żałowała przyjazdu do Poznania. Moc, energia, radość w sercu!”

Behold Ball-Room, one of the bloodiest chapters out of MANTIIS: a shocking visual tale portraying sex, death, and a good load of frenzied pleasures. Shot and directed by Oyeme and the band in a damp basement, this videoclip is not recommended for the faint of heart.
