The fourth Obituary album, This time obituary changed a little bit their style, they experimented a lot with some effects, different (more clean) vocals, and longer riffs.
"Don't Care" is a great song the best one if you ask me, some thrashy Riffs and drum beats, cool solos and usual bass-lines, the actual great thing in Don't Care is the vocals, finally we can understand what Jhon Tardy is saying (is that good? I don't know exactly), after some minutes the song changes it's pulse and some great new riffs are shown. We can also highlight "Redefine" not for it's greatness but for it's rareness, this is a weird song, Obituary playing with intro effects? And with an oddly alternative riff?, anyway, the song is ok it has some amazing "stops" and the greatest drumming in World Demise for sure, and in the minute 2:13 the song gets a great new beat, violent and finally some old school elements (speed, drumming, guitar solo, etc.)
It's not a bad album at all(in fact the lyrics are very good), most people say that this is the last good album Obituary made, I agree, the thing is that in World Demise we can anticipate where Obituary is heading, the songs are no longer Brutal nor filled with crazy ascending solos, or old school drumming, they focused more in to make a best seller than a real good product, not their worst album but sure not their best, World Demise has it's good and bad moments, this album shows that sometimes the old sound is the best sound, that experimenting is not always good, even the cover is different but at least it matches with the title, also it has a great production, very clean, not the best but very clean.
I truly love Obituary, I don't expect exact precision or perfect songs, I admit after releasing masterpieces like "Slowly We Rot" and "Cause Of Death" and selling albums as "The End Complete" it's difficult to make better things, I just think this "World Demise" album lacks of polished music, that's all.
