The Obsidian Conspiracy was recorded with renowned producer Peter Wichers (who previously worked with vocalist Warrel Dane on his solo debut Praises To The War Machine). Longtime friend and collaborator Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ARCH ENEMY) once again handled mixing and mastering duties. The album is set for June 8th North American release and May 31st European release.
