Obscene Eulogy is a Canadian band with a Finnish singer, Mika Luttinen from Impaled Nazarene himself. Though this information is already history, since he left the band in April. But without question, already his name in itself refers to some blasphemous black metal whenever it appears in a band line-up. And that is very close to the music of Obscene Eulogy.

His demonic vocals and the fast, uncrompomising black metal, mixed with a potion of death and thrash metal is a perfect combination of extreme music. The songs are varied from the fast and furious black metal pieces to the slower, kinda doomier ones, spiced up with predictable and snap tempo changes, some surprising twists, like keyboards and horroristic, shadowy elements or the ambient feel (Warning: do not think about any melodic black metal band to compare them to!). This bunch of ingredients make the album interesting and never let it down. And as an extra, most of their lyrics are in Finnish, that is a real bonus with Mika's (and let me use the blasphemous epithet again) vocals. The only negative point I can mention on this album is the drum machine. Its sound is quite good but the dynamism, only a human being can put into the beats, is missing. Two guest musicians also appear on the album, namely Necrophagia's Killjoy and Fintroll's Wilska each on one song.

Basically it is not a groundbraking album but after a week you will feel the need of listening to it again. You will remember the weird melodies, the refrains and its twists. It is a decent, steady album that will survive the oversupply of extreme music nowadays. Strange or not, it is entertaining, as extreme music might give you entertainment. They proved again that you can always do something new, something different if you have good ideas but still staying between the borders of the style. And if you don't like it: Haista Vittu!
