Obsidian/Point Of Infinity/Candlelight Records/2010 CD Review

Obsidian are a band from the Netherlands that plays a very tecnical form of death metal with a blackened edge and this is a review of their 2010 album "point Of Infinity" which will be released by Candlelight Records.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with some blast beats and alot of tecnical parts, while the bass playing has a very dark tone which follows the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times the bass has a strong and heavy at times.

Rhythm guitars are very technical and heavy sounding death metal riffs that also takes influences from other form of metal with some melodic parts being utilized at times, while the lead guitars are very melodic and technical sounding guitar solos, as for the accoustic guitars when they are utilized they bring a very dark edge to the music.

Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams and vlean singing vocals, while the lyrics cover every day type of themes with somewhat of an esoteric feel, as for the production it has a very heavy and professional sound with all of the musical instruments sound very powerful.

In my opinion Obsidian are a very good technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this style you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Breach" "Tidal Waves" "DEsolate Rage" and "Incinerate". RECEMMONDED BUY.
