Spain’s progressive metal outfit OBSIDIAN KINGDOM have released a cover of the NIRVANA classic “Breed”. Their cover of “Breed” is streaming here, and was recorded at the request of Spain’s leading hard rock publication RockZone. The cover also appears on the compilation “Bipolar Sessions #2”, which commemorates this year’s Record Store Day.
Regarding the track, OBSIDIAN KINGDOM comment: “As so many kids from the nineties, one of the things that made us break into playing an instrument was receiving a mixtape from the weird guy at school that featured the very best of alternative rock, from ALICE IN CHAINS to TOOL and from MARILYN MANSON to SOUNDGARDEN, which had us desperately falling in love with rock music.
When RockZone offered us to participate in the second edition of their ‘Bipolar Sessions’, we felt like those kids again, and hurried back to our garage to remove the dust from our old distortion pedals.
We have always had a huge penchant for NIRVANA, especially in their noisiest, and we have chosen ‘Breed’ because it is the perfect pop song with all the punk rage and teenage angst that we loved so deep back in the day.”
Season of Mist previously re-issued OBSIDIAN KINGDOM’s originally self-released debut ‘Mantiis – An Agony in Fourteen Bites’. The album is streaming here. The track listing and album art for ‘Mantiis – An Agony in Fourteen Bites’ can be found below.

OBSIDIAN KINGDOM, an independent music project founded in Barcelona in 2005, first received acclaim from the European indy scene through their self-released concept album ‘Mantiis – An Agony in Fourteen Bites’ (2012). OBSIDIAN KINGDOM defy both tradition and their black metal origins, as they create their own unique style eschewing conventions and genre boundaries. The band is slated to release a new full-length later next year.
