OBSIDIAN KINGDOM Unveils New Album Details, Releases First Single

 
OBSIDIAN KINGDOM will be releasing ‘MEAT MACHINE’ on September 25 via Season of Mist! The full-length is a harsh sonic journey, abject and stentorian like a love letter from a school shooter. The perverse album is a rough drop into a nightmarish world of forbidden desires, frustrated sexual urges and the dark realms of the subconscious mind. The album art and track list can be found below.

In conjunction with the announcement, the band has unveiled the intense and heavy first single, “MEAT STAR,” along with a stunning new music video. Directed by Ferran Ureña (Vivir Rodando) and Eric Morales (Universal Music Group), the video features a top-notch production that weaves together a tale of humankind’s primal nature. The video can be viewed at THIS LOCATION.

Pre-orders for ‘MEAT MACHINE’ are now live HERE.

The band comment: “Reminiscent of the magickal works of Alejandro Jodorowsky or Kenneth Anger, ‘MEAT STAR’ is a bizarre dream-like odyssey where symbols old and new walk hand in hand to convey a powerful message: the meaning of your existence will eventually find you, and the price will be some kind of death. ‘MEAT STAR’ is a song about accepting hardship and pain as a means of discovering your true purpose, and the transformation and sacrifices you must undergo once you’ve committed yourself to that very goal. It is the soundtrack to the crucifixion, to the dismemberment of Dionysus and to the drowning of Osiris. It is an ode to the regenerative power of endings, once you’ve realized that surrendering is the only way to win.”

“Proof that some of the best music does indeed elude easy classification” – POPMATTERS

OBSIDIAN KINGDOM is devoted to exploring the boundaries of rock music. The Barcelonan band defies classification to this very day, drawing equally on progressive rock, post-metal, alternative and electronic music. However hard to pigeonhole, it remains consistent with delivering exciting artistry that never fails to surprise its audience.

Forever on a restless journey to find its true identity, the quintet has been dubbed “the masters of every genre” by Metal Injection. Featuring a heavy and intense sound with plenty of contrast, its main features are the ability to portray a wide range of emotions through the use of multiple sonic resources, a deep interest in aesthetics and the sombre quality of the lyrical topics.

‘MEAT MACHINE’ is an exercise in self-discovery, through a head-first plunge into the anxiety derived from sexual frustration, the absurd of reality and the inherent cruelty of a mechanized world. It is a demanding album that reads as an emotional roller-coaster, featuring an abrasive and overwhelming sound that draws equally from noise and art rock, post metal and late 90s alternative music.
