Norwegian death metal band Obliteration will release their fourth studio album titled Cenotaph Obscure on November 23rd! The record’s first single Detestation Rite is here,
The band will also hit European roads this winter, together with The Ugliest Band in the World, Aura Noir, and Norwegian thrash force Vorbid. Cenotaph Obscure is the fourth album from Norway’s death metal custodians Obliteration. Following their now classic Nekropsalms (2009) and the harrowing Black Death Horizon (2013), the latest offering further expands on the quartet’s trademark sound, lead heavy old school death metal with distinct flavors of both doom and black metal. Inventive yet never difficult to grasp, technical without wankery and obscure without being diffuse.
Cenotaph Obscure was recorded in Studio Cobra, Stockholm with Martin Konie Ehrencrona at the helm, lending the album an organic yet in your face production. In perfect keeping with the music, the lyrics deal with dystopic, apocalyptic themes, extinct civilizations and interdimensional portals etc. With Cenotaph Obscure Obliteration delivering a grizzly but mostly flawless monument to death metal the way it was meant to be, obscure, ominous and unpredictable.
