Black Metal has an ample range of sonorities inside of it, being almost a self-style out of Metal. If VENOM guys could look at this back in 1978, they would be proud of their creation. And another son of the English team comes to the light (please, no ironic puns here), the North American group OBSIDIAN TONGUE, with their second coming, “A Nest of Ravens in the Throat of Time”.

In the very same vein of ABIGAIL WILLIANS and WO...

The majority of the time one-man black metal bands are just a bad idea. Massachusetts based band, Obsidian Tongue, has their roots as originally being formed as Brendan Hayter's one-man band, but more than likely realizing his limitations and silliness of using a drum machine, drummer Greg Murphy stepped in before the band even released their first recording. 2010 marked the bands lone demo, which was followed by their debut f...

Obsidian Tongue is a band that I wasn't aware about until it was sent to me as promo from the staff of Hypnotic Dirge Records.  Hell, I am glad they sent it because in the end, it was a great album to listen to.  Hailing from Massachusetts, the band started as a one man by Brendan Hayter (Blood of the Gods, Thrawsunblat, and ex Woods of Ypres).  Later in 2009, the sampled drums were replaced by a real drummer in Greg Murp...
