Obliteration - Cenotaph Obscure CD
OBLITERATION (Norway) - Cenotaph Obscure CD (2018) is the fourth full-length album from Norway's Death Metal enthusiasts OBLITERATION. Following their now classic "Nekropsalms" released in 2009 and the harrowing "Black Death Horizon" in 2013, the latest offering further expands on the quartet's trademark sound. Lead heavy Old School Death Metal with distinct flavours of both Doom and Black Metal. Inventive yet never difficult to grasp, technical without wankery and obscure without being diffuse, OBLITERATION are masters at their craft.
Cenotaph Obscure was recorded in Studio Cobra, Stockholm with Martin "Konie" Ehrencrona at the helm, lending the album an organic yet in-your-face production. In perfect keeping with the music, the lyrics deal with dystopic, apocalyptic themes, extinct civilizations and interdimensional portals etc. With Cenotaph Obscure, OBLITERATION cement their status as leaders in the Norwegian Death Metal scene, delivering a grizzly yet flawless monument to Death Metal the way it was meant to be; obscure, ominous and unpredictable.
