THE SONGS THE BAND THE ALBUMS THE NEWS

Jun  |  Barry Craig  |  Rob Sones

Obol got its start in 2006. Barry and his pal Derek decided to sit down and flesh out the songs that were deemed too pretty, too heavy, or too weird for their previous projects. Fresh off tours with industrial & power metal bands, Barry was excited to pull his songwriting into a more personal and artful direction.
 
Guitarist Jun and drummer Rob, both veterans of the Seattle music scene, are also transplants from the deep South. Their customary politeness and warm humor are constantly on display, a little surprising given their vastly different experiences in family, heritage and religion.
 
A self-described oddball, Barry lights up on topics like nightmares, politics, and his life's purpose... a conversation that spills over into lyrics for Obol's first album, Revoluçión, and their haunting follow up, Dreaming.
