Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Emerging is the debut album from the dutch band Obsidian. Itīs a very promising debut even though Obsidian clearly needs to work on a more original style. I think they wear their influences too much on their sleeves.

The music is tech metal with a deep growling vocal. The vocals and the slow parts sound like Opeth, the midpaced riffs sound like Meshuggah and the faster parts sound like Soilwork or one of their many clones. Obsidianīs music might not be the most original mix but their playing abilities are way above average and their music is pretty good despite the obvious influences. Towards the end of the album the music becomes a bit too trivial though.

As mentioned one of the real assets on Emerging is the musicianship which is outstanding. Time signature changes, Tempo changes and high class instrumental performances are what we are treated with in every song on Emerging.

The production is good and helps the music to unfold. If there is one regret itīs that the acoustic parts donīt sound too good. They are a bit underproduced.

Obsidian is certainly an up and coming band in the tech metal genre and you should pay attention the next time these guys release an album because it might well be something very special. Untill then this is a good teaser and deserves 3 stars. Itīs not excellent by any means but there are signs of better things to come. Obsidian are certainly better than many other bands in this style ( Read: Textures).

4 stars like many bands, this one has borrowed liberally from Meshuggah, whether that puts you off or turns you on remains to be heard, yet in my opinion this is one of the most original "clones" without being utter rip-offs. The influence is obvious, but Obsidian does an excellent job of injecting amb ... (read more)
