Too often modern death metal bands seem content to imitate genre originators ala Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse or Deicide. Hence, it is refreshing to hear a band that plays traditional death metal and somehow manages to come across as reasonably unique. And, with Obsolescence, Abysmal Dawn do just that.

Rating: 8 I'd give this album a 7.75. Not quite 'very good', but definitely a few notches above 'good'. I've always liked Abysmal Dawn's style.. they're pretty awesome when you want some groove-oriented, thrashy death metal.
