Obliteration – Black Death Horizon


Origin: Norway

Genre: Death Metal

Released on November 8th, 2013 on Indie Recordings

Obliteration’s third release, Black Death Horizon, is a fantastic return to the primitive origins of death metal. Vile and rotten, this album has no pristine riffing, nor any guitar wankery; it is a trip through the 1980’s death metal sewer. It is full of ebbs and flows, tension and brutality, along with a particularly unhinged vocal style. All of this combined, result in forty minutes of wretchedness. As well it should. Not too bad from a band who hail from the same hometown that spewed forth the mighty Darkthrone.

RIYL: Autopsy, Morbid Angel, Asphyx, Obituary
