OBLITERATION

Black Death Horizon

(Relapse Records)

Reviewed by : Kelley Simms
Rating : 7.0

Norway’s OBLITERATION play grimy, doom-laden, blackened death metal on its third release, Black Death Horizon. The band’s repertoire harkens back to an old-school sound with a fresh twist of the knife. On its seven tracks, an aural assault of crusty punk attitude, early eighties thrash elements, doomy, SABBATH-ian riffs and ’90s-inspired black metal atmospheres rears its ugly head. Black Death Horizon crackles with such putrid vibrancy that it sounds so wonderfully horrible. The overall vibe throughout the disc is frantic and frightening. The maniacal, mental ward vocals of Sindre Solem are decorated in a flurry of chaotic guitar leads and a relentless bombardment of blast beats and “boxy” double bass rudiments. There’s a plethora of tempo changes, variation and transitional riffs to keep the intrigue factor high. CD opener, ‘The Distant Sun (They Are The Key),’ begins with a slow, doom-laden riff, complete with ominous bell chimes. It sounds like it could have come straight off of Sab’s debut album, minus the rain storm. Although the music itself is not very original or even highly memorable, Obliteration are carrying on the tradition of their forebears such as DARKTHRONE, BATHORY and CELTIC FROST, while adding their own freshness to a tried and true sound.
