The heaviness of the album is just shocking
COMMENTS:
Engulfed plays your typical down-tuned, churning death metal that can get the blood pumping pretty quickly whenever you need a boost. 'Engulfed in Obscurity', the band's first full length album is a 45 minute assault on the senses, in a somewhat good way. The heaviness of the album is just shocking, I mean I love me some heavy but even I wasn't prepared for this initially. The music is invasive, in your face, and relentless. The production however leaves a lot to be desired as it really drowns the vocals out and the lack of creativity in song structure makes the album tedious after 10 minutes or so.
