Dutch metal unit Obsidian unleashes a technically proficient death metal attack on their nine-track affair POINT OF INFINITY. Enhancing their heavy disposition with nuances the likes of Cynic and Opeth often utilize, this quintet demonstrates their keen understanding of dynamics while maintaining a suffocating atmosphere (“The Upward Spiral”) with grace and precision throughout (“Spectral Pathways”). They also exhibit that they haven’t forgotten how to rip the flesh from your face with tumultuous bouts of frenzied riffs and Meshuggah-esque djent breakdowns (“Illuminate”), giving this band a likeminded violent versatility of The Ocean and The Faceless, offering something for fans of metal that strives to go further on the progressive scale while still brutal in their delivery something to clamor for.
