Det begynner å nærme seg plateslipp for Uk-bandet. 'Obsidian' dukker opp via Nuclear Blast 15. mai.
Nick Holmes: "One of the most eclectic albums we have done in some time, we have miserable songs, sad songs, slow songs and faster songs. Did I mention miserable?"
"...Obsidian eschews its immediate predecessors’ gruesome, myopic approach in favour of a richer and more dynamic deluge of black shades. From the deceptive elegance and dual atmospheres of opener Darker Thoughts through to the crushing, baroque doom of war-torn closer Ravenghast,Obsidian reveals a band in masterful control of a broad array of vital ideas. Most noticeably, the record boasts several songs that draw heavily from the much-loved, Kohl-encrusted days of 80's gothic rock: in particular, newly-minted Paradise Lost anthems Ghosts is a guaranteed dancefloor-filler at any discerning goth nightclub."
