Spain’s Obsidian Kingdom have released the first track from their long awaited followup to the masterpiece “Mantiis.” The epic track “Away/Absent” is from their upcoming album “A Year With No Summer.” The band has this to say about the song and album:
“Away/Absent” is offering you a quick escape from your dull everyday existence with a thrilling ride through stimulation overload, amphetamine-induced happiness and complete abandon before the inevitable end. Let the colorful melodies, relentless noise loops and muffled screams carry you to a brighter and more pleasant place!
Produced by the much sought after Jaime Gómez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Ghost, Ulver), “A Year With No Summer” means the perfect soundtrack to the next apocalypse. Flirting elegantly with alternative rock, electronics and extreme metal, it provides the listener with a full-bodied and brooding experience, one that she will find very hard to forget.
