Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari (vocals, piano, electronics), Eraldo Bernocchi (guitar,
electronics),Balazs Pandi (drums) and Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree - bass). This second album, »Mutations« arrives at the place where the energies of metal fuse with ambient electronica, jazz, and noise with the precision of math-rock and the groove of blues.
Obake's sound harks back to the dawn of hard-rock, drawing upon a variety of influences from Sunn 0))), Popul Vuh, Ashra Tempel as much as Slayer, Tool, Melvins and Coil. Obake are made all the more distinctive by the fluid lyrical delivery and musings of a commanding operatic voice. Imposing in its darkness, encompassing in its beauty and ever powerful, Obake have lost nothing of their might since the release of their debut, if anything, they are more captivating now than ever before.
