Much-anticipated second album, "OBSCURA SYMPHONIA" CD from Norway's MASSEMORD-- hot on the heels of the smashing sleeper "Skogen Kaller" debut album! Fans of the acclaimed debut album will be more than satisfied that MASSEMORD has successfully continued to blast forth with their signature mix of "classic" sounding Nordic Black Metal, Viking atmosphere, epic melodicism, and grim brutality all rolled together! Fans will celebrate to hear the over-the-top ("beefed up") production, the Blackened savagery tempered by skilled finesse that belies the "kicked-up-a-notch" attack! Critics and detractors may decry "more of the same", but followers and converts of MASSEMORD's horde will feast on "Obscura Symphonia" as continuing triumphantly forward on the true path to Underground supremacy!
Beyond "cult", albeit defiantly anti-mainstream, MASSEMORD's "Obscura Symphonia" expands on their provocative themes of actively waging war against religion; anti-xtian battles; the march of Luciferian armies; snow-bound Northern woods; and the monumental strength of profoundly epic Black Metal art! CD packaging features full-colour front and back cover, six-panel multi-fold booklet with full [English / Norwegian] lyrics! The bonus-track (13 minutes long) is an homage of sorts to BURZUM's "Filosofem"-era classic Norsk svartmetall! "Side by side we ride against the hordes of christ!" -- Lord Hastur Warmachine / MASSEMORD (2004)
