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”
eKultura.hu

“Il est vraiment rare de voir de tels extrêmes pour un même groupe!”

Remixes for Cult of Luna and God Seed

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

 

We have been recently given the oppportunity to remix two frontline bands as important as Cult of Luna and God Seed, along with other great artists such as Maybeshewill, Beastmilk, Petrels, Whalesong and Michal Kielbasa.

Synchronicity is our own grisly and futuristic approach to Vertikal, filled with soul-crushing machines and misty tunes. Premiered through Rock-a-Rolla.

Lit is a ritualistic drone orgy made almost exclusively out of Gaahl‘s spine-chilling vocals. Premiered through Indie Recordings.

Feast your ears.

 

Obsidian Kingdom signs to Season of Mist

POSTED IN Mantiis, News | TAGS : , ,

 

Obsidian Kingdom is no longer an independent band. We have come to this hard resolution having one and only one thing in mind: to keep making music for you.

Because we want you to know about us if you don’t already. We want to be able to play in your town or very near. We want you to spin our records without having to pay inflated shipping prices. And we would rather invest our limited and valuable human resources in making music, not in bureaucracy.

Season of Mist is one of the biggest, strongest and longest-lived independent labels that we know. It is certainly home to legends such as Morbid Angel, Mayhem and Cynic, but what makes it so attractive for us to be part of the family is the way they respect and support the aesthetic identity and artistic ideas of the bands they work with. On top of everything else, they are devoted music lovers just like ourselves.

And from now on, we will be working side by side to bring our music to your ears in the best and most efficient way possible, starting with the long-time demanded re-issue of our debut album, Mantiis, which will happen this autumn 2014. In the meantime, we are already writing more music for you to bask in…

Wish us luck on this brave step, and we will repay you a thousand-fold.

Thank you.
