Review Summary: *chatter...* (Translation for mortals: My face...)



*chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter-chatter-chatter*

*chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter-chatter*

*chatter- chatter- chatter- chatter*

(Translation: Obscura is chaos. Chaos in raw form. Chaos unbound. Chaos which cannot be stopped. You can try, but you will fail! Obscura stands on the highest of mountains looking down upon all who is inferior and laughs. Laughs that echo between worlds as a reminder of how pathetic you really are. Obscura eats, swallows and then regurgitates upon the masses in a flood of brilliant musicianship and ridiculously well written songs. Obscuras sound travels through dimension and beyond. Through life and death. Through happiness and sorrow. Over and above existence. Is not that a bit excessive? NO! It’s not...not at all. It’s the truth. The truth told by me. My truth. It does not matter. It’s still the truth. At least it should be for everyone without exception, for what is more awesome that hearing the title track for Obscura for the first time. Pure bliss. Joy in a bottle. Delight within more delight. Satisfaction without limits. Satisfaction which turns into pleasure. Pleasure which turns into obsession. Obscura is obsession. Obsession in raw form. Obsession unbound. I can’t stop the obsession. Obscura is my obsession.)

(Translation: Like being strapped and executed in the electric chair Obscura tears into every vain of your body and leaves you half-cooked. Let’s dig in, shall we? Dig into a really hard-accessible death metal album and satisfy your never ending hunger. Obscura will make you want to feed more and more and more. Feed damn you! Everything you have always wanted is right here! The answer to all of your questions lies within Obscura. Have a listen you will see. See everything. This is what Obscura wants. Enter limbo. We are all here, waiting for you inside. Listening to Obscura is to leave your body and soar through space and time. Nothing will ever be the same at the end of each and every song this album offers. Obscura is the core of madness. Gorguts carved the indefinable and shaped one of the most vicious death metal releases ever. Gorguts are kings in their own way. Kings over their own sound. The Gorguts sound.)

(Translation: I shall now perform a dance for you to show you my love for this album...
*dances*
Yes...and it’s all for you Obscura. Embrace my moves.
Gives this a listen! It’s good stuff!)

*chatter-chatter-chatter*

I'm listening to the this for the first time ever, I'm on track "Earthy Love" right now, it's weirder than I though it'd be but I think I'm digging it.
