On Oct. 15, Castevet will release Obsian, the New York post-black metal band’s follow-up to 2010’s Mounds of Ash. We’ve already heard one track from it, the complex, prog-leaning “As Fathomed by Beggars and Victims,” and today Stereogum has premiered another track from the album, titled “The Curve.” This one’s a little less rhythmically dizzying, but definitely has some powerful riffs, cool textures and a melodic sensibility that has been one of the band’s best qualities since the beginning. Listen below.
Jeff Terich is the founder and editor of Treble. He's been writing about music for 20 years and has been published at American Songwriter, Bandcamp Daily, Reverb, Spin, Stereogum, uDiscoverMusic, VinylMePlease and some others that he's forgetting right now. He's still not tired of it.
