Obsolete Premieres New Song "Grey"

Your metal band is about to be Obsolete as "Riven" will arrive on April 21st!

With the EP rapidly approaching public consumption, today we're premiering opening track "Grey," which can be heard below.

Obsolete singer/guitarist Dan Rivera also had this to say about the song:

"All the songs on Riven were basically therapy for me in overcoming my divorce, which happened in my mid 20s. After watching 'The Grey' with Liam Nisson one night, I was left with this odd empty feeling because of how alone Nisson's character was when the movie ended.

"It reminded me of a very specific feeling I'd had years before, a premonition of sorts, so I immediately picked up my guitar to try to capture that emotion in a song. 'Grey' is the result."

Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, dark progressive metal band Obsolete began as a solo project for singer and multi-instrumentalist Dan Rivera. He started making music as a youth when he first learned to play the bass guitar. Picking up drums and then guitar over the years, he has since played in several local metal bands. Now a full band, Obsolete consists of:

Dan Rivera - Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Percussion

Obsolete Announces "Riven" EP

Up and coming progressive metal band Obsolete is happy to announce the release of new EP "Riven" on April 21st, 2015. The following press release was issued about the group:

"Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, dark progressive metal band Obsolete began as a solo project for singer and multi-instrumentalist Dan Rivera. He started making music as a youth when he first learned to play the bass guitar. Picking up drums and then guitar over the years, he has since played in several local metal bands.

"In 2009, Dan picked up his acoustic guitar and began to write simpler, more personal songs. These songs grew, electric guitars and other layers were added, and his solo project was born, which would eventually become Obsolete. With the help of his brother Matt Rivera and dear friend Lloyd Martin (of Mairin), Dan recorded Ockham's Razor in February 2012 with engineers Richard Schneider and Joey Hendrickson.

"Jason Hufford (an old friend and drummer for The Conquering) and Steven George then joined in on drums and bass/backing vocals respectively, thus completing the live lineup. Daniel Stucky was then added for live percussion, bringing great energy and depth to Obsolete's live sound. The four-song EP 'Riven' is coming in Spring 2015, and the band is looking to bring its music to other cities and into many new ears." More...
