MetalBite Review by JD on 2/5/2013
I just came off of a Power Metal high, going to see an up and coming act here at home that has not even recorded a demo yet, and I was still jacked up. Deciding to do a review or two to wind down was just the ticket for me. I brought up Germanyís Obscenity
, a band I had heard of, but not listened to until I clicked on it.
I was struck by the power of this band, as pure Death Metal seared out of my speakers. This was not Euro or Scandinavia Death Metal, it was revved up form of Floridian Death Metal at its finest. Fiendishly heavy riffs, atomic drumming and thunder clap bass lines, Obscenity
takes this American styled Death Metal, and put into it their own spin and shoot out some of the impressive Death Metal ever.
Picking any track on here would make anyone a believer in the band, so much so that I can't write it all. Songs like 'All That You Can Kill' and 'Swine To The Slaughter' show a band that is so musical in its approach to how they write their songs, but they bring that wonderfully heavy and over the top viciousness as well.
They have taken the whole Floridian Death Metal thing, added in their own blood and sweat, and have made it their own. I have now heard Obscenity
and became a fan within the time it took to listen to it. Now it is your turn to do the same. I need you all to hear this clearly, Obscenity
is the new benchmark for Old School Death... donít be tardy for it.
