Finnish metallers Obscure have released a new EP ‘Zero Dawn‘. Obscure is 2015 founded metal act that combines on their music elements from various genres such as stoner rock and sludge metal.
True to its name the band mixes musical elements from different genres so fluently that it is not relevant to narrow the description of Obscure‘s music down to one genre.
Band’s guitar player E. Hämäläinen comments the new EP: “We started recording this EP during summer 2017 after doing few gigs around Finland. There was no real musical direction or style of what kind of music we wanted to write, we didn’t decide what “genre” we would want to represent or anything like that. We just wrote what we felt natural to us at the time so the final product is very honest and sounds just very much like us. All members of the band have their own favorite artists that we listen to and they of course influence the music that we want to hear ourselves playing, so some elements of Mastodon, Black Sabbath and Crowbar, to name a few, may be heard on this release.
Here it is, our debut EP that’s finally ready after couple of delays, few technical setbacks and a whole lot of blood sweat and tears proudly presented to you by the ugly bastards of Obscure.”
