Obsidian Sea: The band’s definitely got its avant garde hat on here!

Obsidian Sea – Pathos

With myths and the hidden corners of the psyche and imagination.

Obsidian Sea is a doom metal band formed in the beginning of 2009 in Sofia, Bulgaria finding inspiration in otherworldly experiences, myths and the hidden corners of the psyche and imagination in contrast to the shallow and cold world we live in.

The latest album by Obsidian Sea is named Pathos out February 4th on Ripple Music, and here are a taster named I Love The Wood, and this is a stunning and poetic video!

Bulgarian blues and doom metal stalwarts Obsidian Sea new album Pathos is a work in which the trio  injected truckloads of heaviness, a feeling of naive exuberance, aggression, dreamlike melancholy and introspection all at once. This is a record by a band that intends to express utmost honesty without any fear or apology, a therapeutic process of emotional release through the music, «but also one of establishing a truer human connection within the band», as described by the trio.

«The band’s definitely got its avant garde hat on here. It’s nigh impossible to predict where the album is going the first time you hear it, much less describe how it all breaks down musically, but that’s half the fascination with Obsidian Sea. They’re full of surprises.” – Doomed & Stoned

Vocalist Anton Avramov about the song: «I Love The Woods is based on the romantic notion of “beauty in death”. The woods (and nature as a whole) are in this sense this mythical space that combines beauty as this mystical window to eternity on one hand, but also the very primal destructive urges of material life on the other. Musically, we see it as a “doom ballad” of sorts where heaviness and introspective melancholy come together to tell the story».

” Listen to their two previous singles “Sisters” and “Mythos”.

Obsidian Sea formed in 2009 in Sofia, Bulgaria. Their style is a dark and atmospheric take on proto-rock and heavy with a progressive touch and a strong highlight on melodies. The trio has released three albums: Between Two Deserts (2012), Dreams, Illusions, Obsession (2015) and their Ripple Music debut Strangers (2019).

About the new album Pathos, vocalist Anton Avramov explains: «The very word pathos has, through time, accumulated a rich and sometimes contradictory meaning ranging from pity to disdain, implying care or confrontation. In any sense, it was a fitting title for an album dealing with themes like mourning the lost sense of wonder, longing for a renewed connection with one’s existence that was once seen through myth, fable, rite, and could perhaps still be reached by hope, humility and sacrifice. What could be seen thus as simply a juvenile escapist fantasy could perhaps be thought of as a rather sober look upon the fragility of the romantic and the insistence that a world bereft of wonder is also deprived of honesty and therefore inspiration».

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6828 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
