From its very beginnings in , the German progressive death metal band OBSCURA named after Gorguts’ inimitable full- length has demonstrated an uncanny ability for blending different forms of technical, cerebral metal into a coherent synthesis of death, thrash and black metal merged with progressive elements. I actually have not listened to their followup release Omnivium yet, but after spending a healthy amount of time with this album, I’m looking forward to hearing what else the band has to offer barring their first album that thanks to lukewarm reviews I avoided.

The ‘mysteries of the universe’ subject matter seems to mesh well with this shiny form of tech death, and so far Cosmogenesis is almost like a blueprint as to why it works. As a result, many of these songs linger and resonate after listening, particularly the proggish, slow and creative instrumental “Orbital Elements”, the ferocious “Centric Flow” that segues into a memorable majestic epilogue, and “Incarcerated” with its blatantly catchy opening riff.

Regardless, Obscura obviously have technical chops beyond most in metal, but what makes them stand out is their intelligence and complex composition. Getting used to the vocals was my only issue, in fact only the guttural ones took time to deal with as the more mid-ranged growls were excellent in regards to how they fit within the maelstrom of frenzied instrumentation.
I admit to having a certain fondness and admiration for technical bands like Decrepit Birth, Augury, and now Obscura too, but there is that challenge to make sense out of the music of each track and, for that matter, to learn to distinguish one song from another.
