Track Premiere: Obsidian Skies – “Home”

Posted by on September 8, 2022


Colorado progressive melodic death metal outfit Obsidian Skies are gearing up for their spacey debut EP, Saturnian, which is scheduled to arrive on October 14th. The EP follows the sci-fi story of humankind abandoning Earth for Saturn’s Moon Titan. Today (8th), the duo has teamed up with Metal Insider to premiere the new song, “Home.” The track shows the group’s lighter style, while the concept surrounding it involves a more profound emotional journey, as the band explains:


“When we first came up with the concept of this song, we knew we wanted a more intimate, acoustic piece, but we were honestly afraid that it would not turn out at all how we envisioned. When we began writing it, we had two disjointed riffs that we knew we wanted in the song but no real way of transitioning between them. Since the song is so vocally driven, it was difficult to get a grasp of what it would sound like before it was recorded. Hearing the first playthrough of it after recording (but before mixing) was a sigh of relief for both of us as we had actually managed to pull it together. This song definitely “fell into place” more than the other two did.”
