OBSIDIAN KINGDOM are an independent music project founded in Barcelona in 2005. The Catalans have already released two video clips; one for the song "Fingers in Anguish" the other for the track "Ball-Room".
The reissue of ‘Mantiis’ is available on the Season of Mist shop in various formats and bundles. Artwork and tracklist are shown above.
When Spanish newcomers OBSIDIAN KINGDOM self-released 'Mantiis' in 2012, the 500 copies they had pressed sold out in a blink of a eye. The most ambitious project of the band until now, this debut album fully displays its components’ maturity in music writing and performing, meaning a bizarre step outside the boundaries of extreme music. 'Mantiis' is a conceptual album on a violent crime and its dramatic repercussions, which featuresg a single song divided into fourteen tracks flowing through different genres. With a progressive character and a post-modern approach, and taking part in the long-lived tradition of rock operas, 'Mantiis' embarks the listener in an eerie musical trip, noted for the coherent exploration of a wide range of styles and emotions. The band spares no sound resources in order to portray the most varied scenes; from quiet despair to utter violence. And this is only the beginning - OBSIDIAN KINGDOM are already hard at work on their second full-length!
