Obscure Evil are a band from Peru that plays a mixture of black and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Void Fumes" which was released by Caligari Records.
A very distorted bass guitar starts off the ep along with some drum beats before adding dark and melodic guitar leads onto the recording and after awhile thrash influenced riffing and black metal screams are added onto the recording and the music is very heavily rooted in the 80's while also having modern touch.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the riffing also brings in a decent amount of morbid sounding melodies and one of the tracks is all instrumental and all of the songs stick to a heavy musical direction.
Obscure Evil plays a musical style that takes first and second wave black metal and mixes it with thrash to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover Abstractionism, Satanism, Black Metal, Nietzsche, and Nihilism themes.
In my opinion Obscure Evil are a very great sounding mixture of black and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Darkness Descends Upon The Eternal Flames Of Doom" and "Cosmic Ascension". 8 out of 10.
