First of all I think NAILED TO OBSCURITY are great German band and I like it their metal very much.They play progressive death doom and is between OPETH and NOVEMBERS DOOM with influences of TOOL,but in the way they have some their unique style.Greetings to NAILED TO OBSCURITY and I'm glad that you exist in metal vortex of thousands bands in the world.Supporting and keep headbanging in the future \^^/>
Favorite track: Protean.
Malgré son mélange musical en apparence assez bizarre prog/death/doom, Nailed to Obscurity propose une expérience plutôt homogène: les cinquante-quatre minutes de l’album coulent de source, avec une identité bien marquée et une approche mélodique très présente.

One may compare Nailed to Obscurity favourably to Katatonia, Ghost Brigade and Blackwater Park-era Opeth, however doing so would be a great disservice to the band's distinctive blend of Death, Doom and Progressive Metal. There are no weak tracks on 'King Delusion' and the album as a whole has impeccable flow and consistency. Looking back, this is indubitably one of the best 2017 releases.
Favorite track: Memento.
The daily look in the mirror shows a reproduction of reality. But what if it is experienced in a completely different way and you slowly lose yourself? Then, the risk rises to become a victim of “King Delusion”.
On the follow-up to their album „Opaque“ (2013) the German five-piece Nailed To Obscurity sends the listener on a journey through emotional abysses, but they also open pondering views into the innermost. They teamed up with producer Victor Santura (Triptykon, Dark Fortress, Noneuclid) in his Woodshed Studio to find the best sound for all facets of their melodic doom death metal. The overall atmosphere is nailed within the artwork of Argentinian artist Santiago Caruso.
The songs are masterfully composed and flow together beautifully, and the orchestration is exactly how I want metal orchestration to sound: full, playable by a real orchestra, and just as important to the music as the vocals, drums, guitar, and bass are. tonycordeshimself
Vicious, sharp album that whacks you down with it's million accurate knife stabs. It packs such unexplained concentrated heaviness inside that it's not even funny. This record will swipe your smile off and take the command inside your brains. Unique and marvelous record that is hard to unwrap. It just works perfectly. 𝙅𝙤𝙚 𝙎𝙥𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙡𝙡
Riffladen and multilayered to the extreme. The sort of album where you are drifting on surprisingly ethereal melodies one minute and head thumping, brain smushing riffs the next. Strong vocals and varied songs round out this gooey slug of a glorious album. Mercy Ryan
