Death metal alchemists Obscure Burial premiere the new track "Necrophagous Ritual" at Decibel magazine's website. The track hails from the band's highly anticipated debut album, fittingly self-titled, set for international release on December 15th via Invictus Productions. Hear Obscure Burial's "Necrophagous Ritual" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Hailing from Finland, Obscure Burial are Death Metal incarnate. No memory, no past nor future, but the fertile blackness of One and Only, the Lawless King, son of the stillborn moment: Obscure Burial emerged from the lifeless womb in the year 2012. Not long after, their debut demo, God’s Abomination, is released by Invictus and the cult begins. Two years later came Epiphany, the band's second demo, again released by Invictus. Here, their ruthlessly eldritch death metal receives a more advance and dynamic approach, and the fever surrounding the name begins to build ever further. Now, after a minor line-up change, the time is at hand for the band's debut album: Obscure Burial.
Truly a magnum opus of all that's come before within their enviable arsenal, Obscure Burial don't so much alter their steadfast formula as simply perfect it. For true believers with ears and hearts wide open shall bear witness, upon one mere spin of Obscure Burial, that the ancient black/death magic is filthier than ever and effervescently captured in truly terrorizing 3D, raw and reckless and yet deadly fucking clear. The well of influence - the fuck-off-forever sounds of Necrovore, Profanatica, Sadistic Intent, and early Possessed - is still being supped from, but here, Obscure Burial put their own personal spin on it, piling on miles of malevolence and obscurity atop. These eight songs each explode into being, and from each spring endless detonations that reverberate hideously into the abyss. In its compact and coruscating 37 minutes, Obscure Burial accomplishes every inch of its title and moniker: this is an obscure burial, from which no listener can claw his way to the surface.
Timeless and taunting, Obscure Burial have delivered their first grand work. For all ends, for we are in Death - we stand eternal.
