For once here is a band who are not afraid to hide their influences in their biography, or in Obscurant’s case, the influence. Obscurant’s mostly mid-paced and slowish, and as they are Finnish, melancholic yet powerful metal sounds a lot like Hypocrisy have sounded since ‘The Fourth Dimension’ (1994). Add some Finnish feel à la Eternal Tears Of Sorrow and such bands, and more doleful vibes (e.g. Rapture), there you have Obscurant.
Everything is well enough performed. The guitar walls are huge and built from simple and loud riffs, with some melodic riffage animating it all, and backed by the trembling bass. The drumming is tight, with a lot of the double kick drumming is heard.
