Obtained Enslavement pretty easily just watched themselves catapult into the upper echelon of black metal bands I'll listen to relatively frequently. What they managed to do was make a black metal album melodic and complex enough and attract fans of other subgenres while keeping it as misanthropic and dark as the genre usually is, thus managing to not alienate established fans of the genre. By virtue of that alone, this is one of the more perfect metal albums of all time from a technical standpoint. Lyrically the album does not stand out, as witchcraft and satanism are overused themes. However, with Pest vocals and the music united, this album faultlessly captures the feeling of being in a dark, misty forest at night, witnessing the witches sabbath. The atmosphere conjured by the songs is that of mysterious sorceress and their cauldrons, preparing long forgotten magick.
Band Name Obtained Enslavement. Album Name Witchcraft. Labels Wounded Love Records. Suprisingly both the classical music and metal parts of this album run parallel to each other without drowning each other out and run very well together despite both having the same levels of choatic quality. The metallic part of this is mostly quite fast, with old 'Nightside eclipse' style aggressive vocals, the Norwegian sounding guitaring and fast clattering drumming which is filled with blast beats, tom rolls, and double bass drumming.
