Obake is the first (self-titled) recording by Obake. In the spirit of all things RareNoiseRecords, it is the place where the energies of Doom and Drone Metal fuse with Ambient Electronica, noise, the exactness of math-rock and the fluid lyrical delivery and musings of a commanding operatic voice.
Obake build on the foundations of these different genres and creatively weld them together with expert precision.
Imposing in its darkness, encompassing in its beauty and always powerful, Obake is a captivating listen from start to end. A recording that will surely appeal to fans of Sunn o)))), Popol Vuh, Ashra Tempel as much as Slayer, Melvins and Coil.
"Their sonic shadowplay blends marauding doom with velvet synths and operatically inclined singer Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari's whisper-to-wail range" MOJO
"Yet more proof, if it were still needed, that heavy metal continues to throw up a sizeable chunk of the most forward looking music being released at the present moment. " The Quietus
"Obake have produced an album that resonates, a truly captivating and at times unsettling listen that if you permit you will lose yourself within; in simple terms it's a doom metal album, but this is so much more ambitious and even experimental which is down to the abilities of the musicians involved – if you have ever listened to Earth, Sunn O))), Popul Vuh or Coil then Obake are worthy of your attention… Just don't go on your own…" Louder Than War
"It's not a traditional dish by any means, but by God is it exquisite." The Skinny
