In Obscurity Revealed are a band from Mexico that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Glorious Impurity" which will be released in December by Blood Harvest Records.
A very dark, heavy and brutal sound starts off the album while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats along with the riffing also adding in a decent amount of evil sounding melodies. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very old school yet chaotic style.
The vocals bring in a great amount of blackened screams while the music also mixes in a great amount of death metal elements as well as adding in a great amount of 90's influences. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts,
Tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the faster riffing as well as one track also mixing a small amount of clean playing into the heavier sections of the music and a lot of the songs also sound like they could of easily been recorded and released more than 20 years ago. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover Death, Chaos and Occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from In Obscurity Revealed and if you are a fan of blackened death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Coven Maleficia" "Thy Temple Fire" "Pestilent Breath" and "Closing Victory". 8 out of 10.
