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
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.
