Infinitum Obscure are a band from Mexico that plays a very dark and melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2006 album "Infernal Dark Force" which was re-issued in 2016 by Death Elite.
Atmospheric sounding synths along with some clean playing starts off the album and also mixes in with the heavier side of the music along with some morbid sounding melodies and after awhile the music starts to speed up and also brings in a great amount of blast beats and when vocals are added onto the recording they mix black metal screams and death metal growls together.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads also bring in a very melodic yet extreme metal style and the fast riffs also use a great amount of tremolo picking while the music is very heavily rooted in the early 90's Swedish style of black and death metal and they also bring in a cover of Dark Angel's "We Have Arrived" and on the last track acoustic guitars are added onto the recording.
Infinitum Obscure plays a very heavy, melodic and dark style that takes the black and death metal genres of the 90's and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion Infinitum Obscure are a very great sounding melodic mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Where Death Winds Blow" "A Quest For Vengeance" and "Storm Of Impious hatred". 8 out of 10.
