Obtest

This Lithuanian band got their start around 1993 and have built up a solid career in their home country. Their music is often labelled “pagan metal” (the members themselves have used the phrase “heathen war heavy metal”), which really translates to a style that borrows a bit from the black and viking metal genres, without quite fitting in either. The vocals are hoarse and gruff (but not growly), and the songs race along pretty nicely, with a keen sense of melody and an overall style that is pretty unique. At times the songs get rather samey (an overly prevalent use of blast beats contributes to this), but overall Is Kartos A Kartr (their 2005 release) is an interesting proposition for those looking for a different spin on black/viking metal.
