Bio

Obsidian Silence is a Hard Rock / Progressive band and based in Pasadena California, with a sound that can best described as a mixture of Nightwish, Megadeth, and Dream Theater.

The band was born in early 2013 thanks to Fernanda and Miguel, two LACM students (Los Angeles College of Music) who shared the same musical influences. Felllow LACM grads Jose, Aldo, Francisco and Erik later joined them.

After several months of venues and writing of new material, the band recorded their first EP in 2014, featuring five of their original tunes. Combining aggressive yet beautiful vocals with heavy and progressive instrumental elements allows them to deliver their own brand of hard rock.
