Obake is the first (self-titled) recording by Obake. In the spirit of all things RareNoise, 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.
