“Epic and extreme, Epistemology could be an apt score to a bloodthirsty Tolkien-esque battle and the symphonic Introspection in particular would be ideal for some post skirmish tankard-smashing. Obsidian’s guitar playing throughout the Norwegian’s sixth full-length opus is simply magical. Equal parts brutal (Universal Core) and beautiful (Epistemology), his stunning blues and classic rock-steeped solo during the title track is so good Dave Gilmore would sell his inflatable pig for it!” – EDWIN McFEE/METAL HAMMER UK
