Obsidian Kingdom Posts “The Polyarnik” Live Video

Dark progressive outfit Obsidian Kingdom just released pro-shot, live video of the song “The Polyarnik.” The video, shot in Gdansk, Poland during band’s 2016 tour across Europe, can be seen below.

Regarding this video, Obsidian Kingdom comments: “As the echoes of ‘A Year with no Summer’ start to recede, we would like to share with you one last memory of our foregone European tour. ‘The Polyarnik’ was recorded live in Gdansk on last November 9th before the watchful gaze of a mesmerized crowd.

“Thank you so much for walking with us through this surly year. It has been a rough journey, but also a wonderful and transformative experience, and now it’s time for us to move onto new territories. Again. See you on the other side!”

“The Polyarnik” originally appeared on Obsidian Kingdom’s ambitious latest album, “A Year with No Summer,” released via Season Of Mist.

Obsidian Kingdom To Play Be Prog! My Friend Festival, Posts New Video

Spain’s progressive metal outfit Obsidian Kingdom will play this year’s Be Prog! My Friend festival in Barcelona. The fest, which begins on July 1st, sees the band play alongside Opeth, Between The Buried And Me, Steve Wilson, and more.

Obsidian Kingdom’s new album, “A Year With No Summer,” will be released by Season of Mist worldwide on March 11th. Regarding the new album, the band comments:

“Our sophomore full-length is finally written. We recorded it at Orgone Studios in London with Jaime Gómez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Primordial, Ulver) 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. 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.”

To celebrate the album announcement, the band have released a video showcasing a special “Drone Set” performance featuring Brunetto on “BCNmp7. Metal·lúrgies.” This clip was recorded at Centre de Cultura Contemporània in Barcelona on June 4th, and can be viewed below.

The band comments: “Aside from our studio production, we combine our ‘rock band’ aspect with the Obsidian Kingdom Drone Set effort; an ephemeral live project focused on impromptu and sonic experimentation. Through active listening and an exclusively live approach, we amalgamate drone, noise, ambient music and video projections to display a unique and surrounding audiovisual live experience.”

The band continues, “In these sessions, which sporadically take place in little venues or art galleries, the performers rethink their connection with their instruments, deepening their sonic possibilities through an unorthodox use, while supported by the heavy application of pedal effects. All of this is organically entwined with the work of a video artist, who arranges and screens video fragments from the other side of the stage, and becomes one more member of our avant-garde jam sessions.”

Antiversum Releasing “Total Vacuum” Demo

Invictus Productions proudly presents the debut demo of yet another newcomer who’ll soon be talked about far and wide: Antiversum’s “Total Vacuum” on April 20th. The label comments:

“Hailing from Switzerland, Antiversum are a shadowy entity who create an even-more-shadowy sound. Ever aptly titled and presented on digipack CD, ‘Total Vacuum’ comprises four (mostly) epic-length tracks which devour the listener whole – and the listener’s soul.

“Not for them the easy compartmentalization of ‘black/death metal;’ granted, the might ‘n’ muscle of sepulchral death metal is imbued with the obsidian atmosphere of ancient black metal, but those genres simply serve as vessels for Antiversum to transit their plague-ridden ruminations. Morphed together with alchemical magick, Total Vacuum becomes its namesake and offers an experience that is both immersive and immense. Here begins the end…”

1. Finis Aeternitum
2. Vetus Angelus
3. Total Vacuum
4. Adventus Finis
