With just three singles under their belt (the third drops officially on Friday), metalcore newcomers Obsidian Mind are onto something interesting. With a sound that brings together many influences, their sound definitely falls under the metalcore banner – but with intriguing vocals and instrumentals that seek to reach beyond that genre descriptor.
We’re particularly excited to bring you the band’s new video for “Sapphire”, which doesn’t officially drop until Friday. Arguably the band’s best song to date, “Sapphire” might well be the track that sees the band explode in popularity, so it’s well worth a listen. Enjoy it below.
Obsidian Mind is a metalcore band based in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was four years ago when guitarist Jacob Daugherty started writing and brainstorming for the new project he had in mind. After a few years of hard work, through proving times and while searching for the right lineup, a foundation was finally achieved. Jacob has since moved from guitar to lead vocals, alongside Obsidian Mind’s other members Stephen Dunham (guitar), John Schneider(bass), and Jordan Vidas(drums/vocals).
Obsidian Mind’s goal is to combine some of their favorite styles of metalcore into a perfect blend of heavy, rhythmic, and melodic sounds. When it comes to the meaning of their music, it is easy for listeners to feel a multitude of emotions. The songs are exciting, dark, and beautiful all at once, with a bigger picture beyond the lyrics.
