Obelyskkh Streaming New Album "White Lightnin’"

As "White Lightnin’," the second full-length from German quartet Obelyskkh, nears release on Exile On Mainstream next week, today Stereokiller is hosting an exclusive stream of the entire album. Check out the full stream at this location. The following press release was issued about the album:

"White Lightnin’ is a roaring tour de force of catchy, flowing sludge/doom with just the right amount of atmospheric properties to counter its skull-shattering low-end assault, drawing from pure filth through psychedelic soundscapes into postrock and back. The output of Obelyskkh is crushing but it also breathes some kind of repetitive mantra-like ambition, which clears the air here and there and thus declines total negativity.

"Amidst tours and live performances throughout Germany and abroad since their 2008 inception, White Lightnin’ follows-up Obelykkhs’s long-time-comin’ debut Mount Nysa, which was released in 2011 via now defunct German label Droehnhaus, nearly four years after the band’s formation. Following the immediately incredible response from the doom/sludge scene it received, the band decided against a massive gap until the next album, and over the turn of the year into 2011 set up camp with Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Mr. Bungle, Eyehategod, High On Fire, Melvins, etc.) to capture, mix and master their new work."

"White Lightnin’" will see North American release on CD, LP, and digital download via Exile On Mainstream this Tuesday, October 16th.
