Progressive Rock Metal music band project Brighton based UK.
It was formed by multi-instrumentalist Sonic V during January 2010.
Obsidian Key music style is Progressive Rock, but the founder prefer to call it “free rock”, with a wide range of sonorities that goes from almost Heavy Metal tracks till to pop ballads with sophisticated time signatures and elegant, dark or classical melodies.
Obsidian-Key’s music style is also influenced by psychedelia,jazz,fusion and the creativity of the compositions brings the band to experiment also with some classical,symphonic,ethnic and folk elements, at times, or ethereal, surreal and epic atmospheres.
Obsidian Key’s music is characterised by the use of traditional rock music instruments (guitars, bass guitar, drums, digital synthesizers, electric organ) mixed with instruments more common in classical music (e.g. piano, violins, violas, cello, horns, harps, flutes, classical guitars). Sonic writes the music and most of the lyrics, sings and plays all of the instruments on all of the Obsidian Key albums, alongside many guest musicians.
