We’re about to fly off all of our site’s brutally well-beaten paths, and then keep soaring up and out, sort of like the leaping figure on the attention-grabbing cover of Barrows‘ new album Obsidion, which will be released on May 26th through the German label Tonzonen Records. The song from that album we’re bringing you today is “Zenith“.
This isn’t one of our infrequent exceptions to the rule proclaimed in our site’s name, because there is no singing at all on “Zenith“, or anywhere else on Obsidion. And bear that in mind as you further consider that “Zenith” is almost 13 minutes long, and includes only the barest hints of metal. What, you may ask yourself, could possibly hold my attention?
