4 stars When Obsidian Kingdom released their debut album "Mantiis" back in 2012 they were already a hard to classify band that mixed elements from a lot of different genres. With this new installment, the band from Barcelona has taken a step forward in this direction.

Leaving behind the blastbeats and growls of their death metal influence, they have now embraced a much more electronic sound full of distorted soundscapes without losing their heaviness.

"A Year With No Summer" is, in my opinion, a much more focused release than its predecessor. The theme is more mature and original, and the tracks are longer and therefore more polished, being "The Kandinsky Group" a personal favourite.

By the way, this is my first review on this website but I had to write about this fantastic band from my country. Let's hope they release more albums like this one (or better!) because this guys can achieve whatever they want.
