Bands
Obsidian Tide

Obsidian Tide was founded in the spring of 2012 by Oz Avneya (guitars and clean vocals). After a short search, Erez Nadler (drums and programming) and Shachar Bieber (bass and harsh vocals) joined him to form the current lineup of the band. For a short while in its first year, the band also included Roman Spektor (rhythm guitars and clean vocals), and even auditioned for a keyboardist, but the dust quickly settled and only the original members of the band remained.

Obsidian Tide released their first creation, Debris, in early 2015. This concept EP was recorded and mixed by Erez Nadler independently, and mastered by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, Scale the Summit). The album was mostly written by Oz Avneya (based on materials he wrote before forming the band; the finishing touches were a joint effort) and produced by Obsidian Tide. Debris was very well received, and sold many copies worldwide. The band's latest studio album, Pillars of Creation, is a 55 minutes long concept album featuring 7 songs. It was recorded on multiple locations, and features several guest musicians - including Mike LePond (Symphony X, Mike LePond's Silent Assassins). This album was written and produced by the trio, and mixed & mastered by Jamie King.
