Album Notes
The Piercing Obsidian
Contact: Andrea Hatala

The brand new CD is now ready. It is called Never Had My Kind Before. It was again recorded using the technical and musical expertise of Vaughn Passmore at Invisible Sound Studios. The CD release party will be at the Rancho Relaxo on April 8, 2004.

An obsidian is a gemstone that is made of volcanic glass. When broken the shards of glass are so sharp that they can cause mortal wounds. That is why it is piercing. This is a violent image but I simply liked the sound of the name rather then the meaning. The band has been in existence for 3 years with various members including: Andrea Hatala who plays keyboards, guitar and sings and writes the songs. Jeff Burke he plays bassoon and penny whistle. He has played with several bands including The Shadow Puppets and the Subtonic monks. I am very happy that he is still playing with me now. I also use several percussionists including Chris Cawthray, who has played with Rhea's Obsession and Hearsay, or Ricci Costa who has also played with Haze and Dragon fire.
We have been playing in several bars around Toronto including the Freetimes Café and the Elmo Combo. Have just begun to take the show on the road and played a gig at the Fringe Festival in Ottawa.
We have one cassette out which is getting airplay on college radio stations in Toronto, Ottawa and St. Catharines. The cassette is available on CD Baby. However, I personally like plying live and creating an atmosphere of fun and energy. A good time is had by all.



to write a review


I've owned this cd for a while now and every time I pop it in my cd player, I am blown away all over again. My fav. song on the cd is, Seduction Song. I will be taking this cd with me on my trip to Spain. Andrea's voice against the music is just amazing, earthy, and organic. I'm looking forward introducing
The Piercing Obsidian's music with family members abroad during my Spain trip: )

This CD is Fantastic! It's full of angst , beauty and passion. Every song is a jewel straight from the heart. I love this CD and play it often. *CAROLE*
