MrBig1964 Mantiis was perhaps one of the best progressive metal albums of 2012. Torn & Burnt is clearly the best remix album of 2013...
What surprise Obsidian Kingdom are keeping for 2014? Favorite track: Last of the Light (Subheim vs Poordream Remix).
Dawn

Dawn A dark reimagining of one of 2012s top albums with a heavy electronic vibe, best enjoyed in silence, eyes closed, with a glass of whisky in hand.

As this is a remix album, it doesn't have the overall coherence of the source material (the stunning Mantiis) but each track is a delight, from the slow droning "Last of the Light" to the more melodic and progressive "The Nurse". This album isn't one to put on in the background, it's one to be appreciated softly and slowly, just like that fine whisky Favorite track: The Nurse (Larvae Remix).

Pedro Gallego Torres Great remixes of one of the best albums of 2012. I usually don't like this kind of albums, but this one it's totally awesome. Favorite track: Haunts of the Underworld (Drumcorps Remix).

Jaime Díaz-Otero Núñez I could say many things about this album, mainly because it's mine. But maybe NECRO FUCKING DEATHMORT is enough. Favorite track: Awake until Dawn (Necro Deathmort Remix).

about

Obsidian Kingdom Barcelona, Spain

Hard-to-classify heavy sound with plenty of contrast.

The band's main features are the use of multiple sound resources to portray a wide range of emotions, a deep interest in aesthetics and the mise-en-scène, and the sombre and cryptic quality of the band's lyrics. ... more

Track Name: And Then it Was (Oktopus Remix)
When the music’s over…
Turn off the lights

What has become of our fair sister?
Ravaged and bludgeoned and raped her and bit her
Stuck her with fangs and ripped up her white gown
Trapped her with candy and dragged her down

Turn off the lights
Track Name: Awake until Dawn (Necro Deathmort Remix)
El son feréstec
s'arrauleix al voltant,
metzina espessa
roent el meu cap

M'estic immòbil
de llum freturant
i espero l'alba
per, els ulls, aclucar

It was a little after four
Quite unaware of who I was...

Found myself wide awake and dead
Drowned in my sleep and with no breath...

A wiped-out face, sighs in disgrace
Such self neglect, dragged into dread...

Relentlessly, as time went by
I realized nothing was left...
Track Name: Fingers in Anguish (Jr Morgue Remix)
I long for the time
When I’ll see
Your blue smile
For the very
First time

And my fingers
Will freeze
From the touch
Of your cold skin
And I…

I will roll the blanket out
I will pull the zipper down
And your face will make me cry

And the facts I will deny
I’ll refuse to say goodbye
I’ll forever wonder why
...Why?
Track Name: Answers Revealing (Mothboy Remix)
On the verge of a whisper
The skies pregnant with corpse-blue scars
Down a tree ripe with bruises
Breath is stolen by broken goodbyes

Fade...
Away... (x2)

On the verge of a whisper
The skies pregnant with corpse-blue scars
Down a tree ripe with bruises
Breath is stolen by broken goodbyes

Fade...
Away... (x10)
