Обрій (Obrij) completely rotting and crawling out from Uzhhorod-graveyards, Ukraine. Обрій (Obrij) was formed back in 2013 by some rotting-corpse from SKRUTA, DISPLEASE and SOULREST. There has equation surrounding me when I listen to "Олтар Утопії" (Altar of Utopia), that I think Обрій (Obrij) has work in very good Old School Death Metal formation and structure with mid-tempo paced, heavy-slowly groove and the never-end story of battlefield-war / massacre topic. It's will remind you some "Bolt Thrower" sound but fvck yeah it's totally fresh and still sound very solid in mostly parts from "Олтар Утопії" (Altar of Utopia) EP production.
"Олтар Утопії" (Altar of Utopia) contained 4 tracks in the running period between Old School Death vibe, Death 'n' Roll riff's, head-bang down atmosphere and slumber rejoin up with some melo-death ruptured from old Bolt Thrower, Morgoth and Sentenced. The first track from the "Олтар Утопії" (Altar of Utopia), "Весь світ перед нами" totally welcome you in very deepest side on the Обрій (Obrij) creation, that riff's from first tracks just slaughtered and bounded by deep-growled sing! There some melodies from the first tracks that totally will caught you and will show you how the real formation of slow-mid-temp of Death works. Just a good tracks to re-opening and accompany you into the river of war! The second tracks "Поля Камбоджі" has showed Обрій (Obrij) really good handling their instrument, the attacked between double-bass drum and "lost-punch" riff's styles pretty marching with the end of guitar's melodies, I never expected the song will end up like that, but the feeling just going towards along side the story of Cambodian war. If you asked me my standing tracks from "Олтар Утопії" (Altar of Utopia), it's definitely goes for the third track and the last one in this EP. "Доторкнутися до зірок" just touch with numerous limitation of heavy-crunchy guitar / solo works, the track totally invaded all the real tunes from "Олтар Утопії" (Altar of Utopia) in very simple-straight forward song decomposition and "Відголоски Великої битви" just pleasant you in very aggressive mood and twisted mind-blow song structure.
This release probably come up with a good vibe of sound production and it's just dwell and festering all the real fans that loved the stench-smell of Old-Death Metal formation. "Олтар Утопії" (Altar of Utopia) are written in very gloomy-dark mood and a lot of aggression-paced slowly brought me into the battle-field attack mode, unleave and rotten forever on the war-fields! And all the lyrics are written in Ukrainian language, that I think I can only understand for the melodies of the song and the atmosphere that invaded in the whole running time of "Олтар Утопії" (Altar of Utopia) EP.
…and Altar of Utopia just made my day going good! Cool underrated stuff and looking for more from this Ukrainian bands in the future!
Echoes of the great battle, left and rotten forever...
