  • Print

Massachusetts (USA) based black metal duo Obsidian Tongue have signed a record deal with Hypnotic Dirge Records, a home of artists like Odradek Room, Frigoris, Galaktik Cancer Squad,... Their second album entitled A Nest Of Ravens In The Throat Of Time, is set to hit the stores on 29th July. The band recorded this album in May at Mystic Valley Studios and as the press statement reveals this album is: a psychedelic and introspective journey through the collective unconscious of Man and the dark half of the emotional spectrum; A sonic depiction of the spiritual affirmation and personal evolution attainable only through sorrow, anger and disillusionment. In the title track of the album there will be also vocal guest appearance of John Haughm (Agalloch).
One half of the band, Brendan James Hayter commented on the upcoming album: "We took a slower and less aggressive, spacey kind of approach with the new album. We wanted to conjure a hypnotic atmosphere that perpetuates through the record, yet we wanted to cover a lot of ground within that atmosphere, conceptually and emotionally. We infused a lot of very personal ideas and feelings into these songs, almost too much to list. It’s almost unnecessary to list... all I can really tell people is, A Nest Of Ravens In The Throat Of Time is our lifeblood, our mission statement, and really the only thing we give a fuck about right now." Released in an appropriately minimalist fold out booklet with all lyrics included, A Nest Of Ravens In The Throat Of Time is the perfect sonic catharsis for fans of Enslaved, early-Opeth, Wolves In The Throne Room, Agalloch, Alda, Panopticon, Falls Of Rauros, and Skagos. Below you can already listen to the first revealed track "Individuation". Link
