Mirrors of Obsidian
Title:From One Form
Label: Neohuman Records
Release Date: 10 May 2017
Hailing from Dublin we have Mirrors of Obsidian an invention from Brothers Ciaran Ennis (Vocals) and Eoin Ennis (Instruments) “From One Form” is the guys second release ,having bestowed upon the world a debut Album in 2010 , a seven-year gap ensued as Mirrors of Obsidian were on an extended break. What we have here is an eight track Album a virulent, demonic entity , un diluted Metal that’s dam right vicious in its intensity. Opening with “Neutral Disease” the vocals curdle your brain as the onslaught of insanity rips your skin with dynamic ferocity .
“Close to Interception” brings tears of Blood to your eyes as Ciaran Ennis guttural tones scythe their way through your consciousness. The pandemonium continues as the neck destroying “Eternity Gone” blasts into the room, its apocalyptic delivery is enticing corrupting your very being.
“The Core” like the opening track have already been released as singles , it’s easy to see why as the blast beats , and venomous vocals continue to deliver with violent intent. The torrent of Power and menacing Metal continues unabated on the excellent “Blood and Chrome”. “Violent Reprisal” and “Light Waves” continue a tsunami of pernicious , deathly growls that emanate from your speakers bludgeoning you relentlessly .
Final track is the Album title “From One Form” it opens gently then transcends into brutality as the guys take you through Melodic moments of extreme metal rapture.
On first listen to this Album, I was instantly taken in by its vitriolic and aggressive state of being, I Hope the band will become a full touring band soon ,and hit stages everywhere. Mirrors of Obsidian are a force to be reckoned with and worth investing your hard-earned cash on.
