Prog Reviewer
3 stars Obzen adds almost nothing of new or particularly exciting regarding to their past releases. Music relies mostly in math rock rhythmic changes and less in hardcore dissonance (Bleed the most notorious exception), contributing to this as also the more picked guitars and the cleaner production. Formula is more again the same, and in Obzen there's nothing technically imposing as I or In Death - Is Live, nor the intriguing subtlety sparsely seen on Destroy Erase Improve. Still, pretty convincing and compelling for the genre (as if they weren't superbly skilled musicians and composers) but difficultly they will surpass themselves playing the same formula all over again - their unique style urges for another revolution.

6,5/10 (good-)
