OROBAS
OROBAS
Arise In Impurity
(Symbol Of Domination Productions / Satanath Records)
17:30min

Sometimes I have the feeling that the realisation of travelling through time is pretty near. Especially when I hear bands like OROBAS from Bangladesh. Their first EP “Arise In Impurity” sounds so much like the 1980s, it is a pure joy for all those old farts who witnessed the golden age of Metal. And the stuff OROBAS deliver doesn't sound put on. Instead, I feel the atmosphere of departure that was present back then, combined with the enthusiasm of the South American Metal scene back then. Don't expect perfectionism here, don't hope for a polished sound, don't wait for progressive moments. And you won't get disappointed. Expect charming rude riffs, hope for a rough sounding production with some mistakes and wait for some old fashioned proto Death Metal. And you will be pleased all the way through the three original songs of “Arise In Impurity”. Well, some original ideas are on the EP as well, like the spacey outro section of 'The Ravana' or the Ukulele(!) solo in 'Bad Blood Hunter'. Even the cover version of the classic VENOM tune 'Black Metal' does not diminish the fun I had with "Arise In Impurity". So, it's both thumbs up for OROBAS! I hope for more in the near future! Until then, check out www.facebook.com/orobasofficial or http://orobasblacklion.bandcamp.com. The limited CD (500 copies) can be ordered at: www.satanath.com/sodp
