“Lament” is the new EP by depressive US black metal band Obolus and is currently available for FREE download directly from The Flenser HERE.
This is the mysterious black metal band’s second release and expands upon the gazed-out harshness of their debut demo.
The 2011 Obolus demo was previously released by Sunyata Recordings and will be reissued by the Bay Area label Merz Tapes. That recording demonstrates a supreme balance of harsh 90’s black metal and somber California depressive gaze. The release deservingly rounded out a number of year-end lists.
We encourage you to FREELY download and SHARE this new recording. This is a limited pre-listing and the vinyl will be purchasable soon. If you enjoy this recording please buy the vinyl. The free download link will be removed once the physical release is available. Expect a pre-sale for the vinyl edition soon.
