OBSCURA’S “SEPTUAGINT” IS RIDICULOUSLY RIDICULOUS
Just yesterday Vince was talking about all the great prog dork music coming out this year; poor Obscura got left off his list, though, and decided to flip him the bird by releasing an awesome new song.
It’s called “Septuagint,” which the world’s most reliable research resource tells me “is the Koine Greek version of the Hebrew Bible.” And, like the Koine Greek version of the Hebrew Bible, “Septuagint” the song takes all the best things about that Hebrew Bible and amps ’em up to eleven. Okay, well, maybe not the Hebrew Bible in Obscura’s case. Maybe just metal. But otherwise, everything I just wrote is true. There’s, like, ten different kinds of metal going on here, and it’s all being executed with such skill that fuck Straight Line Stitch. That’s really the only way I can put it. You can make music like Obscura, or you can give up on life and wait for the sun to die and listen to Straight Line Stitch. Those are your only choices.
Listen here, and then come back and tell me I’m right in the comments section.
“Septuagint” will appear on Obscura’s latest, Omnivium, which the world’s second-most reliable research resource tells me is Latin for “omniverous space vulva.” It comes out March 29 on Relapse.
