Obtained Enslavement - Soulblight LP (White vinyl)


Limited repress on bone vinyl.
Comes with printed inner sheet with lyrics.

Soulblight was recorded in Grieghallen in June-July 1998.

Obtained Enslavement's Soulblight is their fifth release and first release on Napalm records. The album starts off with a nice build-up intro titled, "A Black Odyssey", as the track ends a drum fill and all hell breaks loose with Pest screeching along to the shredding guitars and sorrow-filled keyboard melody. You can immediately tell that this album is not as classically oriented, yet the guitar and drum work is much more complex and is the main focus of the album (instead of Witchcraft's classical mastery on the keyboard, specifically). The guitar focus is a nice change and another great direction that OE went, but that is not to say that the keyboards are say, crap, or gone; just simply that the keyboard is more of an atmospheric tool in this album than the debut.
