Obsequiae, the Minnesota-based band that aptly labels themselves as castle metal, will release their new album The Palms Of Sorrowed Kings on November 22. As an addition to this very welcome announcement comes two brand new songs, "L'autrier M'en Aloie" and "Ceres In Emerald Streams".
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.
Pre-orders will be available soon, but in the meantime please feel like a medieval knight with the two new singles below.
