5 stars Obscura, which is definitely Gorguts' magnum opus is also usually ranked among one of the best death metal albums of all time. I don't know why it took so long for them to get added to progarchives, as they are one of, if not the most technical and progressive death metal band around. The riffs are usually very heavy, fast and angular progressive riffs, which remind me of Anekdoten on Nucleus. But don't get me wrong, as much as they do sound like Anekdoten, they are much, much heavier. The drums are played extremely fast in a classic death metal sense, but are more technical than usual. In fact all instruments are highly technical, in an un-orthodox way. The Songs usually are very fastipaced and guitar driven, except for Clouded, which sort of like of a slow and brutal death metal ballad. Other noteworthy songs are the title-track, Obscura and Nostalgia. Highly recommended to fans of death metal like Suffocation AND guitar-driven heavy prog like Anekdoten.
