Since their latest album „Retaliation“, Obscenity went through many changes. The most obvious being the additions of their new vocalist Manuel Siewert (December Flower) and their new bass axe man David Speckmann (Burial Vault). Both are now presenting their recording-debuts with Obscenity on “Summoning The Circle”, accompanied by the band’s veterans Hendrik Bruns (guitar) and Sascha Knust (drums) as well as guitarist Christoph Weerts. The recordings for the new songs took place at the Soundlodge Studio (Anvil, God Dethroned, Dew-Scented) with longtime-partner Joerg Uken and in guitarist Christoph Weerts’ own studio while mixing and mastering were done by Christoph Brandes in his Iguana Studio (Necrophagist, Spheron, Maladie). The result speaks for itself and delivers punchy and brutal classic death metal at its meanest. This is the perfect start into 2019, which marks the band’s 30th year in history!

I have no problem with long songs but they can be a problem when the song doesn’t progress or gets repetitive, happy to say this song doesn’t fall into this complaint. Although I’m not a really big metal head, i do appreciate a good metal album. I love the solos and those dive bombs are amazing. Stopped listening to metal for a while because everything seems to gets muddled and sounded the same, this song has brought me back and excited to keep on the look out for more. vikhart_lizard
