OBSIDIAN KINGDOM - Mantiis: A Agony In Fourteen Bites (CD)
SEASON OF MIST
Notify me when back in stock
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 featuring a single song divided into fourteen tracks which flow 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!
