about

"Obnoxious" is the fourth release, and the second full length album, by the death metal band Colosso.
The album shows a more experimental, dissonant and heavy side of Colosso, leaving behind the more groovy side shown on the two previous EPs.

Recorded at Stone Sound Studio (Portugal), mixed by Max Tomé (also guitar player on the band) and mastered by Aaron Smith (Jeff Loomis, 7 Horns 7 Eyes), "Obnoxious"' sound is more aggressive and "boomy" than the first album "Abrasive Peace".

Lyric-wise, the album focus on the extreme void of society ("Obnoxious"), a black hole created by ego, profit and chaos.

– “a monstrous, maverick spirit from Colosso” – Metal Hammer (UK)

– “suffocatingly huge death metal with a subtle technical/experimental twist” – Decibel Magazine (US)

– “ferocity is very much a leading ingredient” – No Clean Singing (US)

– “one of those hidden gems” – The Metal Observer (Canada) 8.5/10

– “there is a certain freshness to their sound.” – Metal Trenches (US)

– “superb, and highly recommended.” – The Killchain (UK)

– “an absolute recommendation” – Reaperzine (Germany) 9/10

– “grows with each listen” – Metalhead.it (Italy) 8/10

– “a powerful, ultra-brute Death Metal” – Franconia Metallum (Germany) 8/10
