22:28 - Apothecary Of course you can't really expect everyone who goes to shows to know the background about EVERY band they're going to be seeing. But still, a general idea would be nice. It's black metal, (most of) it is quite extreme live
22:24 - ScreamingSteelUS Shit happens. Shining happens. Don't go calling out Abigail Williams and Origin for touring with them or the venue or the fans or everybody else. That's just pointless and stupid.
22:23 - ScreamingSteelUS The fact that "it's black metal" doesn't necessarily excuse what are some objectively rude or unsettling practices, because as Che said, sometimes it's a bit much, but, you know, do some research. It still IS black metal.
22:22 - ScreamingSteelUS I guess I'm sympathetic towards her because she did have an uncomfortable experience for perfectly understandable reasons, but she loses me by making it everybody else's problem and blaming everyone else for humoring Kvarforth.
22:19 - ScreamingSteelUS I'm genuinely torn between "she's overreacting hilariously" and "actually, that seems pretty fair." Either way, I was so ready for her to punch Kvarforth.
22:14 - Apothecary Real shit, upon first reading this article I thought it was satirization of overly sensitive PC types. Maybe it actually is
22:13 - Maco The fact that she didn't leave makes me think deep inside she was having a great time. Lol
Spanish metallers Obsidian Kingdom have signed a deal with Season Of Mist. Founded in Barcelona in 2005, the group self-released their debut album Mantiis - An Agony In Fourteen Bites in 2012. Season Of Mist will reissue their debut later this year, before releasing the band's second album later on. The band shot a video clip for "Fingers In Anguish" which has never been released until now. You can watch it below.
The band comments: "Obsidian Kingdom is no longer an independent band. We have come to this hard resolution having one and only one thing in mind: to keep making music for you. Because we want you to know about us if you don't already. We want to be able to play in your town or very near. We want you to spin our records without having to pay inflated shipping prices. And we would rather invest our limited and valuable human resources in making music, not in bureaucracy.
"Season of Mist is one of the biggest, strongest and longest-lived independent labels that we know. It is certainly home to legends such as Morbid Angel, Mayhem and Cynic, but what makes it so attractive for us to be part of the family is the way they respect and support the aesthetical identity and artistic ideas of the bands they work with. On top of everything else, they are devoted music lovers just like ourselves.
"And from now on, we will be working side by side to bring our music to your ears in the best and most efficient way possible, starting with the long-time demanded re-issue of our debut album, Mantiis, which will happen in the autumn. In the meantime, we are already writing more music for you to bask in... Wish us luck on this brave step, and we will repay you a thousand-fold!"
