Biography

OBSIDIAN is a 5 piece Industrial Influenced Metal band from Raleigh North Carolina. OBSIDIAN is known across North Carolina and surrounding regions for their highly-energetic, epically theatric stage shows. With every show, they always seem to leave the crowd breathless and screaming for more. With all members coming from different musical background and experience, the music that is composed naturally comes together in an aural masterpiece of mixed genre.

OBSIDIAN has been around North Carolina for collectively 3 years. They have played over 45 shows in the past year across North Carolina and the central east coast region. They’ve opened for numerous national and regional acts including opening for major industrial act BILE for their first show ever. Since, they have opened for bands such as Sister Kill Cycle, Wednesday 13, Deadstar Assembly, Lunatic Candy Kreep, Still Life Decay, Slavemachine, Century Media's Glass Casket, and Road Runner Records Artists Devil Driver. With an ever growing fan-base in their region, they continue to book and open for many of the regional and national acts that come through their town.

Lyrics

The Horrid Masses

Written By: Legion - OBSIDIAN

I am the product of Hate
I guard the chard black gate
Filth, Lies, Pain, Suffering
God of the horrid masses
Lord to the unwanted ones
King of the fucked up masses
God to the diseased ones
We will never surrender
To the fascist pretenders
Filth, Lies, Pain, Suffering
God of the Horrid Masses
Lord to the unwanted ones
King of the fucked up masses
God to the diseased ones
There is no savior
For those whom are lost
There is no resolution
No mater the cost
There are no answers
To the questions we pose
Only suffering
For those whom appose
Open the door
Bleed ever more
Open the door
Forever more
Open the door
Pray ever more
Open the door
Forever more

The Chosen One

Written By: Legion - OBSIDIAN

It’s just another day
It’s just another way
To make me die inside
I really have to say
I truly hope you pay
When you steal my pride
You know, Things will never change
I cant, Seem to get away
I cant, Seem to make myself beautiful
Tell me
How does it feel
How does it feel
To be the chosen one
I could never be like you
No matter what I do
I could never be so privileged
To be someone like you
Don’t you know
Things will never change
Don’t you know
Things will never go my way
Don’t you know
Things will never fucking change
And it’s just getting better by the day
Tell me
How does it feel
How does it feel
To be the chosen one
To be the chosen one

Smashed Face

Written By: Legion - OBSIDIAN

So here I am
Just like you wanted
Just another fucking beast
Another Hater
Another loser
Just as you made me
I hate you all
I never needed you
So this is what we’ve become
Smashed Face, Liar
Smashed Face, Loser
You say you’re not a liar
You say you’re not a sinner
You got a middle finger?
Well put it up and get out the way
Get out the way
Before I fucking smash your face
You say you’re not a liar
You say you’re not a sinner
You got a middle finger?
Well put it up
Your nothing to me
You never will be
You’re just another piece of shit
You want to try
To bash my face in
Its just another Forcefed lie
You’re like the rest
Your second best
You know…. You really should die.
