Obed Marsh are a band from Australia that plays a blackened form of funeral doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Innsmouth".
Dark nature sounds start off the album along with some field recordings and after the intro the music goes into a heavier doom metal direction along with some black metal screams and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the guitar leads and solos also bring in a very dark and melodic style.
Melodic yet ritualistic chanting can be heard in the music at times and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length while some of the riffing also brings in a decent amount of melody and the songs also bring in a lot of funeral doom elements and all of the songs tick to a very slow musical direction.
Obed Marsh plays a musical style that takes funeral doom metal and mixes it in with a more black metal vocal approach to create a sound of t heir own, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics are based on the writings of H.P Lovecraft and The Esoteric Order Of Dagon.
In my opinion Obed Marsh are a very great sounding blackened funeral doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Esoteric Order" and "Seeping Wounds". 8 out of 10.
