Obsidian Sea “Dreams, Illusions, Obsessions” LPNuclear War Now
Bulgaria is not the most obvious place that one might look to in search of the best recent examples of traditional doom metal. That said, Obsidian Sea, a Bulgarian band formed in 2009 with one demo and two albums to its credit, has established its own legitimate claim as a torchbearer for a subgenre that has splintered into many different subspecies since its roots took hold several decades ago.
In particular, the band’s second album, “Dreams, Illusions, Obsessions,” demonstrates its ability to successfully channel the spirit of monumental predecessors such as Candlemass and Saint Vitus. Originally self-released on CD and also on cassette by Serpent Eve Records - Nuclear War Now! is proud to present this recording for the first time on LP, as well as once again on CD format, in order to give this deserving band from a relatively obscure location the attention that it merits.
