OBSIDYEN is a Black Metal band founded in Albi (81) in 2019.
Their first musical attempts revolved around biblical mythologies, before slowly shifting towards the « Ancient Astronaut Theory », popularized by Erich von Däniken in 1968.
According to this theory, humanity has been visited by non-human beings in the past.These traumatic anthropological and technological encounters led to the creation of polytheistic religions and myths in antiquity.
OBSIDYEN transcribes these subversive subjects through massive and powerful riffs, coupled with liturgical cold melodies, resulting in an atmospheric harmony that adventures the listener into the lands of the past, the stars and beyond.
The band released their first self-produced album, "ANTEDILUVIAN SCRIPTUM" in 2020, with subjects including Mesopotamian and Sumerian cultures, the Old Testament or the
myth of Atlantis.
Very soon after the release of this first album, Omega has created a mythological trilogy based on the "Cult of the Serpent" around the world.
The first episode is called "LITANY OF IAH", and takes place in
Fardeaux (French for “burdens” was born at the end of 2019 in the north of France. Behind this mysterious entity hide P and M who have joined forces to offer a black metal that would only set very few limits to their music.
The creativity of the duo allowed them to offer three titles well received by fans of the genre, "Tindalos" and "Silver Crack" released in 2021, followed by "Encore Loin De l'Achèvement Des Proies", released in 2022.
The time has come for Fardeaux to move on to a new stage, with a first album, which will be released on April 28, 2023. And to materialize the promises that blossomed in 2019.
Fardeaux presents itself as “the story of souls that fall inexorably, through a past that resurfaces in a disproportionate way, wonderfully horrifying, incomprehensible. An ordeal that dreadful entities take turns maintaining to draw them away from the light and plunge them deeper into their own darkness."
The journey that the duo suggests is seductive: seven compositions in which power, virulence, catchy and sometimes dissonant melodies will usher you in a dark and personal universe.
It is therefore with great pride that Drowning In Chaos Records begins its adventure with the release of this album which will undoubtedly make an impression.
So don't wait any longer and try the Fardeaux experience.
