Progressive rock outfit OBSIDIAN KINGDOM are streaming their new album ‘A Year with No Summer’. The album, hailed as “somewhere between Porcupine Tree and Radiohead with dashes of more traditional progressive rock swirling in the mix” (PopMatters) is streaming now at Prog Metal Zone.
Regarding their new album, the band comments:
“Our new album ‘A Year With No Summer’ is a spiked cocktail of city spleen, conspiranoia and personal trauma; blue like the stagnant water in the pool of a marooned holiday resort and heavy like the silence after the next radiant apocalypse.”
‘A Year With No Summer’ will be released by Season of Mist worldwide on March 11. Pre-orders for the album are available at the Season of Mist E-Shop. The band are streaming a video for the track “Black Swan” now at PopMatters.
‘A Year With No Summer’, was recorded at Orgone Studios in London with Jaime Gómez Arellano (GHOST, PARADISE LOST, PRIMORDIAL, ENSLAVED, PURSON, CATHEDRAL). The artwork and track list for the album can be found below.
