Obolus - Lament

Art by Bryan Proteau.

Obolus - Lament has been released as a free download on the Flenser Records Bandcamp. Free because the Flenser want more people to know about Obolus and giving away the bands new release seemed like the best way to accomplish this.

This is a 20 minutes atmospheric black metal journey. Haunting shrieks buried by screaming guitars and blasting drums, interspersed with slower depressive interludes. Lament delivers on the promises Obolus made with their Demo, which was reviewed by Cvlt Nation and Don't Count on it Reviews.

Brian Proteau also did the fantastic artwork for both the original and the remastered version of Lycus - Demo 2011.

Update: The Obolus Demo has just been released on cassette, available for pre-order here and also featuring artwork by Brian Proteau.
