The group says in a statement: "'Mothra' represents a new step in our life as a band, a new shape for both our sound and our songwriting and it's our most sick and experimental album so far. It will surprise you!"

All artwork for the CD was created by visionary artist Seldon Hunt (NEUROSIS, MELVINS, ISIS, KK NULL, EPHEL DUATH).

SLOWMOTION APOCALYPSE last fall parted ways with guitarist Ivan Odorico and replaced him with Manuel "Sean" Giannella (DAYSHINE RISING). According to SLOWMOTION APOCALYPSE, "he is a very talented guitar player and he is the perfect consolidating link between what we have recorded until today and the new stuff we're going to release in the future."

SLOWMOTION APOCALYPSE released its second album, "Obsidian", in April 2007 via Scarlet Records. Recorded by Riccardo Pasini (EPHEL DUATH, THE SECRET, REPRISAL) at Studio 73 and by Ettore Rigotti (DISARMONIA MUNDI) at dB Studio and mixed and produced by Ettore Rigotti, the CD features guest vocals by the mighty Tomas Lindberg (ex-AT THE GATES, THE GREAT DECEIVER), Gianluca "GL" Perotti (ex-EXTREMA) and Claudio Ravinale (DISARMONIA MUNDI).
