20 Buck Spin is now streaming the new “In The Garden Of Hyacinths” single by treasured Minnesota metal act OBSEQUIAE, ahead of the label’s November release of the new album, The Palms Of Sorrowed Kings.
The Palms Of Sorrowed Kings is an album singularly concerned with creating a captivating world to become willfully lost in, setting itself on a path that few now trod but a realm that OBSEQUIAE towers over like the noblest kings.
Decibel Magazine’s new December 2019 issue features OBSEQUIAE‘s The Palms Of Sorrowed Kings as the lead, featured review, which includes, “Anderson has an uncanny ability to write and perform music that is at once delicate and muscular, somehow binding together rabid extremity and trad-metal melodies that feel positively ancient into cohesive creations… this year’s third chapter is as gratifying and as compellingly listenable as the band has ever been.”
Followers of Bathory, Eucharist, Varathron, Dawn, Macabre Omen, Summoning, Rotting Christ, early In Flames, Opeth, and Abigor take note of OBSEQUIAE‘s The Palms Of Sorrowed Kings.
The Palms Of Sorrowed Kings will see release via 20 Buck Spin on CD, LP, and digital format this November 22nd. Digital preorders are live at Bandcamp HERE where “L’autrier M’en Aloie” and “Ceres In Emerald Streams” are also streaming. Preorders for the LP and CD will begin this Friday, October 18th.
For the third time in a decade, a new dawn rises over the castle ruins. OBSEQUIAE once more lowers the gates and emerge from the keep, to regale the townsfolk with tales of another age via heroic hymns of majesty and high adventure on The Palms Of Sorrowed Kings.
The most immersive and hyper-focused album from OBSEQUIAE to date, The Palms Of Sorrowed Kings features a heightened sense of rhythmic definition, greater care in the depth of layers and a shimmering clarity that elevates the uniquely realized character of a band unlike any other. Sweeping and vast, the otherworldly scope of the guitars, the anachronistic harp interludes, the percussive precision and the range of ancient melodic beauty open portals to the immemorial.
OBSEQUIAE will perform live including at several festivals in 2020. Watch for additional audio samples from the record and more to be issued over the weeks ahead.
