Combination metalhead's OBSELITE have an EP out and about, as well as a recent debut full-length album that was just released! The band chats of their most recent work's, releasing even more music, music videos, touring and much else to follow through soon!

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

ObsElite started as a project in 2019 between Justin Kelter, Ryan Fairbrother, and Kiel Fauxton.  The 3 of us have been in a bunch of different bands/projects over the years and we thought it was time to utilize our individual talents towards an industrial  style metal band.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

We were running through a bunch of ideas of names that were sci fi or cyberpunk related. One day we were talking about Fear Factory's album Obsolete, and Kiel was like "how about ObsELITE? and we all looked at each other and were like "yeah that's the one"

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are from Detroit, Michigan, USA. Theres alot of great artists in the scene of all different genres. Bands like Manic outburst, perversion, SNAFU, Nethergate, Carnis immortalis, Battlecross, and The black dahlia murder.

4. How would you describe your style?

Mid 90's industrial with late 90's nu metal/groove and hints of Death and thrash metal. We like to call our style cyberpunk industrial metal basically.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We released an EP called icon of sin in 2020 as a test run. we were still going through a learning process of blending electronics and metal together and people really enjoyed it so we worked really hard on our Debut full length album GHOST//HACK which was released 2.22.2022. and our album has been really well received all over the world so far. its been great.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We are working on a few covers right now and we have some ideas for new songs that we just might release as singles. right now we are mostly focused on promotion and putting out more music videos.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We are planning our debut show for later this summer. we are making a big cyberpunk themed event out of it at a goth club in Detroit known as city club. we have plans for a Midwest American tour that is still TBA as well as a festival.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

More music, music videos, touring, hopefully land a good record deal, and gain enough traction that can turn ObsElite into a powerhouse. 

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

We are on all streaming services and as well as bandcamp, you can also find us on Facebook and Instagram!

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

To appreciate the overall atmosphere combined with the heaviness of the music that paints a mental image of a dystopian future.
