At times it feels as though Obscure Evil pumps pure darkness and raw evil straight into their new release Midnight Forces. Everything about this four track release is raw and entirely unforgiving and provides you with massive amounts of twisting first wave black metal infused with punishing thrash. “Midnight Forces” is a writhing and poisonous ball of searing darkness and grime which brings a certain lurking evil along with it.
The more sordid and blasphemous the better, and Obscure Evil packs plenty of both with this straight shot of corrosive acid. Midnight Forces steamrolls you into an early grave and laughs as it summons its horde to feast upon your rotting carcass. Obscure Evil hits you quick and they hit you hard not giving you any time to prepare yourself for the demonic punishment that ensues upon pressing play.
These filthy demon summoners play a disgusting brand of metal that is reminiscent of bands of old and yet they make it their own and harness that brooding blackened power for evil. Sooner or later while listening you feel yourself falling into a burning pit whose walls are scorched with the ever burning flame of hell.
With molten riffs, drums that are out to let all of your blood from your system, and with the echoing vocals that are barked at you with a forked tongue rip you to shreds and leave you for the vultures. Once the first note begins, this release summons hellhounds and utterly disgusting demons to do its sordid bidding.
After just one full listen is over you feel as though you have been lashed hundreds of times by a demon overlord. Midnight Forces is a harsh and grueling four songs that don’t stop your punishment long after your soul has escaped your mortal body. This release is raw and visceral and has enough power to grind your skull into oblivion. Midnight Forces is utter mayhem and will stop at nothing until it quenches its thirst for blood.
