Obscura Amentia are a band from Italy that plays a very dark and atmospheric form of raw black metal and this is a review of their self released 2010 album "The Darkest Dream".
Drum programming is mostly slow, mid paced to fast with a lot of blast beats, while the keyboards sound very atmospheric, as for the bass playing it is mixed down low in the mix and has a raw and primal edge to it.
Rhythm guitars are mostly slow, mid paced to fast raw black metal riffs with a good amount of sorrowful melodies, while the lead guitars are very distorted primal black metal guitar solos that use a small amount of wicked melodies.
Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics cover darkness in more of a supernatural way, as for the production it is very dark and raw sounding.
In my opinion Obscura Amentia are a very good dark sounding atmospheric black metal bands that fans of this genre will enjoy. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Afterlife Recall" "The Darkest Dream" and "Groans Of Ghosts". RECOMMENDED BUY.
