Obsequiae - The Palms of Sorrowed Kings

The one, the only, the ori­ginal Castle Metal. OBSEQUIAE is back with its most pol­ished album yet, far ahead of what little com­pet­i­tion there is. But will it turn out to be the her­ald of a new era?

Review: Obsequiae - Suspended in the Brume of Eos (2011)

This one of those metal albums that sound con­ven­tional on the sur­face but har­bour a vast amount of soph­ist­ic­a­tion within. If there’s any band that deserves the label ‘medi­aeval metal’ (or as the promo notes have it, ‘castle metal’), Obsequiae is it.
