This OBSCURITY is not to be confused with the Swedish cult heroes of the 80s or the Stockholm band of the same name from the 90s. This is a German variant on the name. They’ve been around for some time now and have a handful or two albums to their name. I can’t say that I’ve paid too much attention to them before even though I have a slight feeling of having reviewed an album of their before. That the first band that I think of is Amon Amarth probably says more about how much I like that Swedish band than anything about OBSCURITY sounding like them. But I gotta say that there are similarities in the guitar sound. Again I can’t tell heathen from pagan from folk metal but if I were to make any sort of guess I’d say that this is what heathen metal would sound like. You get the feeling of a battle being fought when you listen to this. I like it. Anders Ekdahl
