The Obsidian Conspiracy pt. 2

You know.. I was gonna go more in depth on this album.
But the more I listen to it, the more I just can't stand it.
Sure Jeff Loomis has ripping facemelters and sick riffs all over the place.
But the album is just plan boring.
I am disappoint.

I'll be digging up a blast from the past with my next post.
Something Scandinavian.

Nevermore - The Obsidian Conspiracy

So this album dropped in June and I finally picked it up last night.
I'm a little disappointed by it, but not too much.
The songs are a lot shorter from what I've come to expect from Nevermore.
There's still more heavy riffs and blazing solos than your mind can comfortably handle,
however it seems like the songs were constructed differently.
It almost seems like they were trying to be a little catchy.
It's a decent album. I'd rate it 7/10.
I'll go a little more in depth on specific songs in my next post.
