The progression from The Erosion of Sanity to Obscura is a good example of why it is important to master a style before attempting to evolve it.  Gorguts mastered the technique and composition of traditional death metal and then expanded upon that, rather than trying to be "unique" and "innovative" from the outset.  Their concern at this stage was about musical composition rather than image.

A good point. Once Obscura is deciphered you can see it is pretty much Erosion of Sanity 2 with a new technique, aesthetic and message. It is the same unmistakable melodic voice as the earlier album with similar songwriting techniques evolved further into new dimensions. No gimmickry.

Agree. Though I've long thought there was something lost in the gap between those two albums. If only they recorded something in between.
