Still working on that hot first release.



Obsidian Silence is a Progressive Hard Rock band based in Pasadena California, with a sound that can best described as a mixture of Nightwish, Megadeth, and Dream Theater. The band released their first self-titled EP in September 2014, including 5 original compositions, and was featured in Music Connection Magazine’s Hot 100 Unsigned Live artists list in December 2014.

Their EP is available for online purchase and online streaming on iTunes, Spotify and all the major online music stores, and it can be heard for free at the band’s official website www.obsidiansilence.com. Members include Fernanda Alba (Vocals), Miguel Rebolledo (Lead Guitar), Aldo Gongora Vidal (Rhythm Guitar), Erik Kapernick (Keyboards), Francisco García (Bass) and Jose Garcia (Drums).

The band was born in early 2013 when Fernanda and Miguel, fellow international students at the Los Angeles College of Music in Pasadena (formerly known as LAMA), realized they shared many of the same hard rock and heavy metal influences, including bands such as Nightwish, Stratovarius, Epica, Megadeth, Lacuna Coil and Symphony X. Although they come from very different countries with different languages (Brazil and Colombia) it didn’t take long before they started working on some of their own songs and realized how much their musical styles had in common.

The project they created was originally a 4 piece band, joined by 2 other fellow LACM students on bass and drums. Shortly after, Obsidian Silence began performing and gaining notoriety by playing in school events and outside venues such as The Other Door in North Hollywood. After a few lineup changes they were joined by Jose and Aldo on drums and guitar, and eventually by Francisco and Erik on Bass and Keys as well. The band kept writing new material and went on to play other venues such as the Witzend in Santa Monica, the Universal Bar and Grill in Studio City as well as the Boardner’s by La Belle, The Dragonfly, and the Rainbow Bar & Grill in Hollywood.

Combining aggressive yet beautiful vocals with heavy and progressive instrumental elements allows them to deliver their own brand of hard rock. Obsidian Silence also writes lyrics that are not afraid to explore topics such as human psychology and politics, allowing them to stand out and make their voice heard loud and clear in today´s overcrowded rock and metal scene!
