Obsidian Kingdom plays KÖRKARLEN

POSTED IN Drone Set, Live, News | TAGS : , , , , , , ,

The CCCB and Mery Cuesta have comissioned us to write and perform the film score to the cult classic movie “Körkarlen (The Phantom Carriage)“, as an opener to the Gandules’18 outdoor screenings cycle, this year revolving around the themes of magic, altered states and the occult.


Obsidian Kingdom plays Körkarlen


Based on the novel of the same name by Selma Lagerlöf, the film is a reference to the Swedish legend that the last sinner to die before the stroke of midnight on New Year’s eve has to drive a ghostly carriage for a whole year. This marks the starting point of a spectral journey through the most decadent episodes of the life of David Holm (played by the film’s director, Victor Sjöström) in an emotional crescendo towards a dramatic end.

We will perform our original film score, written by our dear Jorge Mur, at Pati de les Dones in Barcelona during the evening of Tuesday, 8th of August. This is a one-off show, so be there!

We’re so proud to announce that we’ll be playing next year’s Be Prog! My Friend festival in Barcelona. This will be the go-to Prog event of 2016 and we couldn’t be happier to see our name among so many amazing and diverse acts such as Steven Wilson, Opeth, Magma or Agent Fresco.

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!

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!

Last Friday 29th of November we had the honor to welcome Mark Cunningham to perform at one of our Drone Sets during the first Ritual Cvlt BCN Party.

And since we don’t get to jam with a legend like him every day, we thought that this time we’d record it and share it with you.
