Obskuria: Burning Sea of Green

When a band cites both krautrock and Slayer as influences, expect it to mess with your mind. And that's exactly what Obskuria does on Burning Sea of Green, the multinational outfit's fuzzy second album that uncorks the psychedelic, free-form heaviness of the Seventies and invites listeners to snort it up. All nine tracks here save a peppy garage-rock cover of Slayer's "Black Magic"! were recorded during one-take instrumental jams with all of the German, Peruvian and American musicians in the same room, squeezing blood from every note. And large fragments of Sabbath, Floyd, Zeppelin and the Doors wound up on the studio floor.

A pair of vocalists (one male and one female who sounds a lot like Deborah Harry) added their parts somewhere along the way, and the result is a dark and raw album that sounds more cohesive than releases by bands who probably try twice as hard.

Track Listing:
1) A-Bun-Dance
2) Somewhere
3) Why?!
4) Black Magic
5) Under the Gallows
6) Slow Stone
7) Memories of Mysteria
8) Screaming Like A Whirlwind
