KAMERA OBSCURA – THE FINAL CUT (Dooweet Agency)

Review by Meuris: Sometimes a simple look at the artwork and the song titles, give away a lot as to what one can expect from an, even before the first note comes  bursting out of your speakers.

Being a fan of  good old fashioned  B movies of the horror genre, songs going by titles  like “ The Howling”, “Texas Chainsaw”, “Phantasm”, “ Maniac” can only mean that The final cut is not located at the happy side of  the metal spectrum .

Instead Kamera Obscura make an attempt to be dark; very dark ! The band wants to achieve this by combining heavy riffing with eerie keyboards and female vocals.

Does it work? Well  for a few track it does. However overall there is not enough variation nor quality on display to avoid that the final cut does not become a rather boring experience pretty fast… Additional information at: http://kameraobscura.info/  /  https://kameraobscura.bandcamp.com/album/the-final-cut

My rating: 50/100 (Bad, substandard)
