Genre- Technical/Progressive Death Metal
Germany's Obscura plays a super fast, ultra technical breed of death metal on this album. The musicianship here is almost second to none, and this album was one of my favorites of 2009. Pounding tech riffs, inhuman drumming, audible jazzy bass lines and harsh low-end vocals all come together to blast the listener. Although it should be apparent upon sampling, fans of the mighty Necrophagist should be aware that Obscura features the outstanding musical talents of both Hannes Grossmann, and Christian Muenzner. This is a must listen.
