Obscura – “Akroasis”

Makhija: “Technical death metal at it’s finest, this captures Obscura at their best. The production is beautifully organic allowing the music to really breathe and showcase the virtuosity of the band. Catch riffs, tight drums, incredible bass playing and vocals that perfectly compliment it all.”
