Obscenity - _Intense_
(Morbid Records, 2000)
by: Paul Schwarz (6.5 out of 10)
Obscenity have made a few meagre attempts to vary the speedy and brutal pastiche of death metal styles from Europe and the USA which they offer as their own identity. With nods towards the fabled "Swedish sound" and tighter, faster blast sections both notable improvements on this new opus, Obscenity have unsurprisingly remained essentially the same: _Intense_ still displays an overwhelming bias towards Massacre, Obituary, Death and Deicide -- solos included. Obscenity play well, structure songs adequately, are complemented by a nice production and thus produce results which are at least fittingly brutal. End-riff melody squeals and a near-five-minute song-length average dent _Intense_'s semi-glossed sheen, but nevertheless Obscenity create a marginally convincing Frankenstein with _Intense_.
