OBSCURANT
FIRST DEGREE SUICIDE
WOODCUT

Finnish metal troupe Obscurant have got a whole lotta Goth in its death metal blend, as indicated on the nine-track endeavor FIRST DEGREE SUICIDE. Ethereal like Sentenced and Katatonia, this quartet's mid-paced menacing gets a bit tedious after a few listens, but the synths make up for the monotony a bit by providing a rich texture to songs like "Blinded By Love" that otherwise would sound plodding. If you enjoy burning incense, walking through graveyards at night, and dolling up in dark makeup, chances are Obscurant should find its way to your CD changer in the near future.
