The Obliterate Plague = Dark Throne + Mayhem + Kreator + Blasphemy


The Obliterate Plague is yet another shining black creature of hate from the dark recesses of Salt Lake City’s darkest corners. This CD actually contains two separate recording sessions, one slightly rougher in sound than the other; but the music is fast, heavy and brutal nonetheless. Mixing the barbaric styles of Kreator and Blasphemy with the speed of Slayer, then throwing in the raucous, distortion-soaked hate of Dark Throne and Mayhem, Obliterate is ready to pummel the listener from the opening song, “Through the Eyes of Evil.” Also contained on this disc is a cover of the Mayhem song “Necrolust.” The packaging is a completely DIY effort but looks very nice indeed—well worth a paltry $11.
