Obake had released a brand new track from their second album, Mutations.
This explosive track is instantly recognisable as Obake, their trademark heavy, lurching doom guitar riffs, make room for Lorenzo’s chameleon-like vocal style, changing constantly throughout the songs duration. However, any sense of this being business as usual is soon shattered by the unpredictable pace-changing drum blasts and ear piercing electronics which hint that a broader range of dynamics are at play on the new record.
Indeed behind the scenes, the quartet comprising Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari (vocals, piano, electronics), Eraldo Bernocchi (guitar, electronics), Balazs Pandi (drums) and Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree – bass) have been undergoing a metamorphosis, changing the dynamics and channellng their talents to create this new recording.
Mutations was recorded by Daniel Sandor at Metropol Studio in Budapest, produced and mixed by Eraldo Bernocchi and Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari at The Place in Tuscany and mastered by Michael Fossenkemper at Turtletone Studio – NYC. Obake will be touring from October 2014 onward.
