A few things need to be said about Obscura. They are an extremely talented band. Their progressive style incorporates a lot of melodic tones offering a unique blend other bands struggle to match.

Yellow Eyes delivers a notable contribution that stands ahead and apart for many reasons.
From the modest, but historical, deciduous forest and Appalachia of Tennessee, to the sweet odors of the Lodgepole Pine lining the jagged Rockies of Colorado, comes a combined split from Twilight Fauna, and Evergreen Refuge.
From the opening title track "Beast Incarnate", the speed of the twitching guitar riffs leads a static lit trail that the riveting blast beats and churning bass follows through tight structured melodies and guitar solos that focus on a more eerie tone and mood.
