Obsidian Sea was formed in the beginning of 2009 in Sofia, Bulgaria finding inspiration in otherworldly experiences, myths and the hidden corners of the psyche and imagination in contrast to the shallow and cold world we live in.
The band's music takes its main influences from the classic doom sound of Pentagram, Trouble, Black Hole, Paul Chain, but also from rock & psychedelic bands of the late 60s and 70s as well as the movie soundtracks created by the likes of Goblin or Fabio Frizzi.
Initially the band consisted of only two members: Anton Avramov (guitars, bass & vocals) and the drummer Bozhidar Parvanov. In this line-up a 4-song demo was recorded in 2010 and then the first full-length album "Between Two Deserts" (released in 2012 by Solitude Productions).
By the end of 2012 Obsidian Sea became a trio with the addition of Ivaylo Dobrev on bass and played their first live show in their hometown. More concerts followed, including appearances with bands such as Ufomammut, 1000mods, and also local ones Upyr, Sativa, Muddy, Trysth, etc. contributing to the development of a small but promising doom/stoner/sludge scene in Bulgaria.
