Obliveon - Carnivore Mothermouth
Review: Expanding their palette with more techniques from later death and black metal like Behemoth, Obliveon make a style of metalcore that combines the cyclic, bouncy punk song structures with metal and rock riffs, mixing in elements of lead picking and harmonic interplay that might be familiar to fans of Cynic.
To metal fans, these songs will seem static because they do not make use of the phrasal style of death metal riffs, eschewing them for bouncy and harmonically static styles, and they design themselves after an idealized song pattern, where most metal songs contort themselves to the poetic direction suggested by their dominant riff-motifs. In addition, the gangrush style vocals seem directionless after hearing the directed, narrative screaming of death metal and black metal. It's definitely a new style, but what does it communicate, we must ask -- and conclude that whatever it is trying to communicate is the opposite direction from where death metal wanted to go.
