Easily one of the most technically dissonant records ever released. And that's why it's so fucken good!

From Decurso
The playing on this album is just off the charts. There are some incredibly complex arrangements on here, and it's insanely heavy to boot. A favourite of mine from the death metal genre.

I remember describing my first experience with Obscura as "tearing apart my brain and putting it back together", it's a special record.

From tonagamu
Usually death metal doesn't appeal to me. This album, however just tweaked my attention. I heard about it's musical complexities and gave it a listen. I was not disappointed. Yeah if you're not accustomed to listening to this type of stuff, it's a tough runner, but if you give it the chance it's truly beautiful.
