Barry Craig | Jun Mantrano | Will Tooker
Obol got its early start back 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 push his songwriting in a more personal direction.
Guitarist Jun brings a high level of artisty, finding new ways to make each song beautiful and exciting. Drummer Will Tooker brings a laser-like precision and discipline to the band that they've never had before, tightening the Obol sound into a tour de force.
A self-described group of misfits, Obol opens up on topics like nightmares, politics, and life's purpose... a conversation that spills over into lyrics for Obol's first album, Revoluçión, and their haunting follow up, Dreaming.
