We’re proud to bring you the first and so far only cassette version ever of Obscurae’s immense 2020 debut LP “To Walk the Path of Sorrows”. A triumphant ode to darkness and nocturnal immensity, California’s one man ambient black metal entity Obscurae finally brings us its unreal sophomore full-length album on cassette tape format via Sentient Ruin, after its original CD and LP release in late 2020 by American Decline Records.
Years in the making, the massive album unfolds as an unyielding and immense cyclone of sound that surrounds the listener and submerges them into an otherworldly vortex of storming chaos and obfuscating shadows. An unrelenting churning maelstrom of frost, sweeping winds and cascading nightfall, “To Walk the Path of Sorrows” is an extraordinary tsunami of sound that travels at immense speeds across a massive horizon, devouring everything in its path and leaving a massive gaping void in its wake.
One of the most mysterious and overlooked yet sonically imposing releases of 2020, Obscurae’s “To Walk the Path of Sorrows” stands high as a grandiose and impenetrable storm of hypnotic trance-inducing ambient/atmospheric black metal with an immense consciousness-altering aura that re-evokes the majesty and sonic vastly of bans like Darkspace, Thirst, Paysage d’Hiver and Voidsphere.
