Obscura – Persefone – Disillusion – Live at Doornroosje, Nijmegen – 28 Sept 2022

As a passionate concert goer and a fan of the extreme arts, this evening was one I couldn’t miss. The legendary tech-death group Obscura recently had a tour through Europe with support acts Disillusion and Persefone, the latter being a beloved favourite of mine. It is a tour that had been announced before the pandemic only to be repeatedly postponed until it finally happened. During this time both frustration and anticipation were left to boil, so when the riffs finally unleashed, it was catharsis time.

An Abstract Illusion – Woe

The creative effort, challenging topic and gargantuan scale of the delivery can only secure a place for “Woe” as one of the strongest contenders for the 2022 album of the year.

Warforged – The Grove | Sundial

I feel like the band stayed true to the weird, ruthless concoction of sonic witchcraft and mad science that made their debut so savage, but they decided to take their listener’s risk of heart failure into account on this one.

Stormbound – December

At the end of the album, it feels like you ran a marathon, been transported through many places and even different eras, as if you were on a proper adventure, and you’re left with a beautiful sense of finality.

Aronious – Irkalla

“Irkalla” follows the band’s unique brand of unstable, constantly shifting progressive tech-death, but it seems updated both in virtuosity and composition from its predecessor.

Atomic Symphony – Hybris

While it is probably not the most innovative or surprising work I’ve heard, it is authentic, exceptionally well produced, and delivered by a tremendously talented group of musicians who really knew how to come together in their craft.

Greylotus – Dawnfall

While I still struggle to take most of it seriously, I absolutely love hearing it. If you want everything you believe about the world to be proven wrong, be sure to spin “Dawnfall”.

RO1 – Errorist

Despite it being a heavy, technical and nerdy piece of music, the melodies evoke a lot of soul and create a mood that is very refreshing and relaxing but also energizing at once.

Inanimate Existence – The Masquerade

I think this band finds a way to make their music so mathematically precise and clinical that it starts losing credibility as being played by humans. And I’m not necessarily saying that in a bad way.

Mimesis – Trilogy

Mimesis basically managed to destroy a futuristic utopian city by the sheer power of shred, odd-time signatures and mind-bending technicality.

Shadow of Intent – Elegy

I recommend “Elegy” to any fan of extreme music, especially to those who are tired of formulas, but even to them I’d say, you need a strong stomach for this one.
