OBSCURITY - TENKTERRA
Metal To Infinity
Metal, Viking Metal, Folk Metal…. All have something in common, I suppose I
don’t need to explain what. What I do know is that Obscurity is a Belgian
Metal band and although Belgium is chosen as the most boring country on earth
Obscurity can’t be blamed for it! Well, I suppose most people don’t really
know Belgium but believe me if I say it isn’t boring at all, every day there
happens something that blows you away and citizens don’t understand.
there’s nothing that makes you believe Obscurity is a Belgian band. First of
all the language of the lyrics seems to be German. For Belgium it isn’t that
bizarre because a part of our country is German, given to Belgium after World
War I as compensation for all sufferings. On the other side this is the first
Belgian band I know about that sings German. Not that I really care because the
lyrics are for the biggest part not understandable. On the other hand I have
always been a fan of Rammstein….
wise Obscurity hits very hard all the time, aggressive from the beginning until
the end. It seems these guys are prepared for a big war and after watching the
latest “Robin Hood” movie I was totally into the mood for this CD!
Nevertheless good rhythms and melodic parts are foreseen. At some points even
awesome acoustic parts are weaved into the music and they fit the music very
well. This very good produced CD brings one after another great Viking Metal
song that represents the typical atmosphere this kind of music demands.
Obscurity does it without any folkloric elements or samples and that does mean,
to me, they’re very convincing. So yes, this is a very great album that fans
of Pagan Metal really should check out.
