Patrick Saad’s Top Releases of March 2011
Obscura – Omnivium
Highlights: Septiagint and Celestial Spheres.
Positives: Obscura delivers another technical death metal gem after their praised Cosmogenesis. From bass solos to acoustic parts to clean vocals, this album mixes beauty and brutality in one extreme package.
For fans of: Necrophagist and Psycroptic.
Sylosis – Edge of the Earth
Highlights: Empyreal and A Serpent’s Tongue.

Divinefire – Eye of The Storm
Highlights: Unchain My Soul and Masquerade.
Positives: Epic orchestrations, melodic metal with soaring vocals and the occasional death growls, this album might just be their best!
