OBTEST "Auka Seniems Dievams"
  • Album: Auka Seniems Dievams
  • Year: 2001
  • Label: LEDO TAKAS
  • Artist: 
  • Lithuania

My colleague from "AD ARMA!" Magazine (ex-Ledo Takas) has decided to promote bands from his own country and thus I now carry in my hands an album of a Lithuanian band to which, although I try finding defects, I have nothing to reproach. The entire album develops a notable strength as the guitars' sound, although rather primitive or unprofessionally mixed, creates a traditional Slavonic medieval atmosphere, which is enjoyable for the ear. Moreover, the tracks are performed in English and Lithuanian as well, resembling rather to hymns due to a strong clear impressive voice. I find difficult to label the four's music into a certain style! Perhaps if trying I could say Slavonic Black Metal! It might be HELHEIM in a Slavonic resonance or a different SKYFORGER more classical and somehow clearer of so many modern instruments, effects and thus torments. And these are the most appropriate things to the OBTEST's visualization and manner of approaching music!
