This is a review of another recording from Obsidian Kingdom which continues their experimental mixture of black and death metal with the ep being self released in 2010 and called "3:11".
"Prey" which is also the first song on the ep opens up with dark and heavy metal guitar riffs before adding in bass guitars and drums along with a mixture of black metal and death metal vocals and then the song goes into a more heavy and progressive sounding metal direction and a few seconds alter there is a brief use of clean singing vocals being utilized which also leads up to a brief use of guitar solos and leads.
"Maze" begins with heavy guitar riffs and drums and a few seconds later drums, bass guitars and melody are added into the song which also leads up to some melodic clean singing vocals and a couple of minutes later black metal screams and death metal growls start to kick in as well as a brief use of guitar solos and leads as well as the song going into a faster direction and adding in blast beats from the drums and the song closes with melodic vocals.
"Solitude" which is also the last song on the ep opens up with drum beats and bass guitars which then lead to acoustic guitars and drum beats along with whispers and a few seconds later melodic clean singing vocals kick in as well as some heavy guitar riffs shortly after that while also keeping around some clean sections and as time goes on by death metal vocals are added into the song along with melodic riffing and black metal screams and halfway through the song guitar solos and leads kick in.
Song lyrics cover atavistic human fears, while t he production has a very strong, powerful and heavy sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording along with most of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Obsidian Kingdom and if you are a fan of experimental black/death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Maze". RECOMMENDED BUY.
