Gorguts - Obscura 2-LP (Black vinyl)


This album is what death metal sounds like to those who don't know what it is. Obscura just is what it is, a maelstrom of sonic chaos, a kind of furthest-point mountain-peak of death metal, with nothing holding it back. Gorguts' previous albums were pretty traditional sounding tech death, and while they were fine for what they were, I can't even imagine what Obscura sounded like to people who were first hearing it with no context back in the 90s. I mean, fucking hell – this thing is insane even now.
