Soulbound - Obsydian

The fourth album from German industrial metal band Soulbound is a stellar collection of dark elegance and reflection which shows how far they've come over the past 15 years.

With a dark elegance, rich in reflection and resilience, Soulbound's new album, Obsydian, captures the band's tumultuous journey over recent years. The new album weaves together a spectrum of intense themes, from grappling with inner demons to socially critical observations and deeply personal experiences, such as the pain of farewells.

Formed in Bielefeld, Germany in 2009, Soulbound are known for their grounded attitude and humanity. Fans cherish the band's closeness, openness, and candidness. They are unafraid to tackle serious issues, like the stigmatization of mental illness, and are vocal against discrimination and exclusion.

Initially identifying as an alt metal band, Soulbound's sound has also been linked to metalcore and nu-metal. Today, they describe their genre as "we don't give a fuck metal," though their music can be best categorized as melodic industrial metal while diverging from traditional industrial metal norms.

Drawing inspiration from bands like Eisbrecher, Megaherz, Lord of the Lost, and Deathstars, Soulbound offer a unique blend reminiscent of Neue Deutsche Härte and the synth-driven alternative metal of the late '90s. Their music is a compelling mix of catchy melodies, dystopian and socially critical lyrics, and a fusion of stomping rhythms, hard guitars, and aggressive synths. And nowhere is that more evident than on Obsydian.
