A Valediction

densepoplar I was surprised by how much I liked this album. Yes these guys are masters (this lineup and the last) but sometimes a big tech death album gets a bit samey, and Obscura is not exactly a fresh new band. But this album is long and interesting, lots of awesome licks and shredding. The whole feels coherent but there's more than enough variation to keep me interested. Great aggressive biking music. Favorite track: The Neuromancer.

David Fischer Despite Mr. Kummerer having to deal with a big line-up change and being the successor of Diluvium - an absolute masterpiece of an album -, A Valediction is inexplicably impressive. There is definitely more melodic death metal in this than before, less party pieces and an overall more organic sound. Guitar-centric music often tends to overextend and make less of an impact as an result of that, but this record is exceptional. Also, hats off to the bass and drums. I'll spend LOTS of time with this. Favorite track: When Stars Collide.
