OBSEQUIAE announce new album

OBSEQUIAE - Aria of Vernal Tombs

20 Buck Spin announces the forthcoming second album from Minnesota’s Obsequiae entitled “Aria of Vernal Tombs“. The album will be released on May 12th 2015 on CD and digital formats, with the LP edition to follow shortly thereafter. Obsequiae re-emerge with “Aria of Vernal Tombs” having painstakingly shaped their 2nd opus over four years in the way an expert woodworker plies her trade to craft singular works of exquisite beauty. As before, traditional medieval source material, this time interpreted via Vincente La Camero Marino’s sparse, sorrowful harp pieces, appears throughout ”Aria of Vernal Tombs“, providing a foundation on which to base the longer metal based sagas that form the albums core. Black metal, death metal, traditional heavy metal and Medieval music are all weaved seamlessly together in baroque yet abrasive reverence, resulting in a remarkably original long-player.

With a wet clarity to the incandescent production that cites underrated obscurities like Sacramentum’s “Far Away from the Sun” and Eucharist’s “A Velvet Creation” along with the early works of Varathron, Samael and Rotting Christ, the atmosphere created on ”Aria of Vernal Tombs” brings to 2015 what such bands strangely but sincerely captured years ago. Every sound and shimmering tone is intentional and essential to this rite of Spring. 20 Buck Spin is honored to issue Obsequiae’s 2nd album this Spring on gorgeously foil stamped CD and LP editions. Last year 20 Buck Spin released the first vinyl edition of Obsequiae’s masterfully unique 2011 debut album “Suspended in the Brume of Eos“. Cover artwork and album tracklist are already unveiled. More news about the upcoming album will follow soon.
