Last year 20 Buck Spin released the first vinyl edition of Obsequiae’s masterfully unique 2011 debut album ‘Suspended In The Brume Of Eos’. Perhaps the only band that might fit as well on a label like Harmonia Mundi as on 20 Buck Spin, Obsequiae re-emerge with ‘Aria Of Vernal Tombs’ having painstakingly shaped their 2nd opus over four years in the way an expert woodworker plies her trade to craft singular works of exquisite beauty.

As before, traditional medieval source material, this time interpreted via Vincente La Camero Marino’s sparse, sorrowful harp pieces, appears throughout ‘Aria...’ providing a foundation on which to base the longer Metal based sagas that form the albums core. Black Metal, Death Metal, Traditional Heavy Metal and Medieval Music are all weaved seamlessly together in baroque yet abrasive reverence on ‘Aria…’ resulting in a remarkably original longplayer.


1. Ay que por muy gran fremosura
2. Autumnal Pyre
3. Until All Ages Fall
4. L'amour dont sui espris
5. Pools of a Vernal Paradise
6. Anlace and Heart
7. The Anchoress's Orison
8. In the Absence of Light
9. Wilweorthunga
10. Des oge mais quer eu trobar
11. Orphic Rites of the Mystic


FORMAT: LP / CD / DIGITAL

RELEASE DATE CD: MAY 12TH 2015
RELEASE DATE LP: JUNE 9TH 2015

Really looking forward to hearing this.

I've listened to "Suspended In The Brume Of Eos" many, many times over the last few years, and never tire of it. I often play it back-to-back with Infernum's "Farewell" album - the two go together really well.

I certainly agree Obsequiae wouldn't be out of place on the Harmonia Mundi label - that is, if they were ever to record an album of purely Medieval-style music and instrumentation (which I'd welcome, as I enjoy the Medieval-style guitar compositions on the first album as much as the metal songs).

Parroting the above post, except I've never heard Infernum before. That is about to change.

But as for Obsequiae: I can only hope that this album is even half as immediately and infinitely rewarding as . . . Brume of Eos.

I spoke with Tanner / Blondel de Nesle about a week ago. I know they enlisted the services of a Spanish medieval harpist for this one. Should be great!

From what I've heard off this album, everyone will like it a lot. A lot. And yes it's twice as immediately and infinitely rewarding as Brume

I am pretty much interested in grabbing this one once it gets released. Their debut full length was excellent and unique.

Hijacking the thread:

I still have the self titled demo tape for trade. PN if interested.

Sorry for interrupting, s.charlach.

^This sounds like it's going to be a step up from their previous album; an encompassing listen.
