08.10.2013 Bit of a mouthful that style description. Don't let it put you off though, Castevet's sound has always been a bitch to accurately describe but one thing's for sure: this is a top quality record. If their début wasn't already brilliant enough (which it was), Obsidian pushes the envelope even further and expands on their scorched-Earthen sound with a flawlessly organic progressive edge, with influences from Virus and Enslaved, if their sound is anything to go by.

  New track called 'As Fathomed By Beggars And Victims' here.

So, I wasn't too far from the truth... Nowadays they sound quite progressive to my ears.

  ...and we have another song:

Rating: 9 Sounds absolutely phenomenal.

  Great, the whole thing is streaming here.
!J.O.O.E.! - 08.10.2013 at 18:04  
Rating: 9 Over half way through now. Really nice stuff indeed. More natural sounding and easier on the ear than the debut.

  Giving this a spin now, enjoying it quite a bit so far.
!J.O.O.E.! - 08.10.2013 at 19:06  
Rating: 9 Anyone else getting lots of Enslaved and a bit of Virus in this?

  Listened to the whole things just a few hours ago. It was excellent.

Rating: 9 Enslaved and Virus for sure, my only obstacle is the coarse vocals, hopefully I grow accustomed to them as the music is brilliant!

Rating: 9 Such a great album. The production is absolutely tremendous, and as such everything comes through spot on.
Nefarious - 17.10.2013 at 02:37  
  Agreed. This album is fast becoming one of my favourites of the year.
InnerSelf - 09.12.2013 at 19:00  
Rating: 9 Both the Enslaved and the Virus reference are spot on. One of this year's highlights.
Divergenceless - 19.12.2013 at 23:33  
Rating: 9 Amazing. One of the releases I was sleeping on this year, and one of the year's best.

Rating: 9 I've been meaning to listen to this ever since I saw JOOE's staff pick. Finally got around to it and it did not disappoint. I was pulled in from the first note until the last. Fantastic album. More spins to come.
