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?

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.
