Obsidian Tide

Hi Oz, and welcome to Grande Rock. First of all do give us a brief bio of the band.
 
O: It was in Spring 2012 when I formed the band. We are a trio; I am in charge of guitars and clean vocals. On bass and harsh vocals is Shachar Bieber and on drums and programming is Erez Nadler. We released a debut EP named “Debris” back in 2015 (which actually has a concept to it) and since then, we worked on our full length album “Pillars of Creation”, which we released this last August 29th.
