I've been listening to this album for a little while and kept wondering what band it reminded me of until it hit me just a few days ago: mid-80s Razor. You're still reading, so I guess I need to keep writing. Occult Burial could be described as a blackened version of Razor with a hint of Kill 'em All-era Metallica popping up on occasion. These guys play furiously fast and razor-sharp (see what I did there) black/thrash that you can't help but headbang and air-guitar to, and you could go all day long without getting tired of it. The vocals are the expected black metal raspy screams and those are loaded with hate delivered with a demonic, haunted vibe. Delightfully old school while mixing in modern black/thrash ingredients, Hideous Obscure strikes a good balance between the old and the new. This is blackened thrash done right.
