OBTEST
OBTEST
Auka Seniems Dievams
(Ledo Takas Records)
43:53min

Heathen War Metal from Lithuania that gets even more interesting by the use of their mother language (I don't tink it's Russian what they speak in Lithuania nowadays, but I wouldn't bet my ass on that). The fact that they don't use real extreme vocals supports this effect. Actually, the singer reminds me a bit of MOONSPELL. As I already mentioned, the music OBTEST are playing is rather melodic Pagan Black Metal. But apart from their language I wouldn't consider OBTEST to be that exotic. "Auka Seniems Dievams" therefore is "just" a strong album within the borders of this genre, maybe a little more kick ass than other recordings. So I'd go for it, but if you can track down a copy of the limited vinyl version: there is one bonus track on it! By the way, label and band are looking for distributors and gig promoters.
