Bands We Love: Obsidian
From LA, Obsidian will be competing at the Battle for Vans Warped Tour Finale on August 6th 2016. Composed of Carlos Calavera (lead vocals/bass), Frank Bera (guitar/ Backing vocals), and Mike Lopez (drums), these guys are ready to rock out with their “army of darkness.” Their influences are mostly classic metal bands; Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Megadeth and etc.
Founded in 2011, Obsidian have found much success with a loyal fan base and interstate touring. They have been able to stand on their own among the over-saturation of thrash metal bands in the local scenes. Their advice to aspiring musicians who want to be successful is to “stay humble, know what you want, start with small goals and then build up.” Experience their energy and musicianship at the Battle for Vans Warped Tour Finale.
