5 stars Spooky, one of my favorite albums of all time! Very heavy and dark. The dissonance really adds to the darkness shown in the album. Obscura is considered a seminal piece within the technical extreme metal. It also defined their sound. Songs like the title track showcase the band's technical playing and great handling of time signatures and changes. Others like Subtle Body even have Middle-East vibes going up! Finally, the flow between tracks is very good. It adds up to the atmosphere a lot.

Very inaccesible but highly recommended. This album should impress every metal head in the world, it's incredible. Five Stars for me, without a doubt.
