It's no secret that I'm no big fan of the Death/Grind genre, but there are a few bands that I at least like. I think Obscenity can be added to that list. Rather than mindless fast and monotonous guitars with overdone blastbeats, Obscenity injected enough variety in their material to keep the listener's interest for the duration of the album - in other words it doesn't sound like a 33 minutes flatline. The guitar solo are not only easily identifiable in a few songs - thanks in part to a good production, but some of them are pretty damn good as well. The band has obviously found some inspiration into more classic heavy metal and adapted it to their genre, and that's a bit refreshing. There's actually some melody in there, and those parts are very well done. Still not something I'd listen to every day, but for an occasional listen I think this is a pretty good album. The vocals are the usual death growls, not too guttural so I can stand them. ;) Obscenity give me the feeling that they are in to improve their genre, not just to follow the leaders or to jump on what's "popular", so that's a band I'll be keeping an eye on. I don't know what seasoned experts of the genre will make of this album, but I like it and can recommend it to those who'd like to start exploring the genre.
