Obscurity - _Damnations Pride_
(Scarlet, 1999)
by: Pedro Azevedo (3 out of 10)
Coming from the same label as Dominance (whose rather interesting _Anthems of Ancient Splendour_ I reviewed in CoC #42), I expected a lot better from Obscurity. Similarly to their other labelmates Necrodeath [reviewed in this issue], Obscurity play in the retro-thrash league, but they're bound for relegation unless they dramatically improve after _Damnations Pride_. They share Necrodeath's lack of new ideas, but not their skill and consistency. Even if the vocals weren't so damn terrible (which they are), _Damnations Pride_ still consists solely of unremarkable, poorly written and performed thrash, the sound of which often varies from track to track without ever actually being good. Low quality stuff.
