Top 10 Songs on Obscura’s CosmogenesisThis is the second studio album by German death metal band Obscura, released in 2009.
Cosmogenesis is a critically acclaimed album.
Subgenres: Progressive death metal, Technical death metal
Softer songs are closer to progressive death metal, heavier songs are closer to technical death metal. Obscura music is heavy but not brutal, it's compex and technical yet melodic (but without turning into melodic death metal). I think they found an interesting formula for a balanced sound that is heavy and beautiful at the same time.

The Top Ten Songs on Obscura’s Cosmogenesis
I forgot to mention in the list description that Cosmogenesis was awarded "Best Death Metal Album of the year 2009" by Loudwire. I agree with that. - Metal_Treasure
It was difficult to rank the songs on this album because they are all very good and I have changed my mind several times. There isn't a single bad song on this album.
If you like Crystal Mountain by Death (and anything by late proggie Death), you will probably like Obscura music, too. - Metal_Treasure
This is the longest song on this album (7:26) and one of the heaviest. - Metal_Treasure
A soft and beautiful instrumental that even non-metal fans would enjoy if they like instrumentals. - Metal_Treasure
One of the heavier songs on the album. Guitar solo is by a guest musician - Ron Jarzombek, the Godfather of technical metal. - Metal_Treasure
This song includes 30 seconds of jazz fusion music. I like Steffen growls on this one. - Metal_Treasure
Sounds quite emotion, love it
It has a long and very beautiful outro. - Metal_Treasure
This is available on youtube, guitar playthrough by Steffen Kummerer:
OBSCURA - "Anticosmic Overload" (Official Guitar Playthrough) - Metal_Treasure
A faster and heavier song with deep growls but it's somehow melodic.
Guitar solo by Tymon Kruidenier (ex-Cynic) - Metal_Treasure
Intro is heavier but most of the song is softer than the average on this album, it's more progressive than technical death metal. - Metal_Treasure
It's a softer, feeling-oriented song. I feel almost guilty for putting a song from this album at #10, last... - Metal_Treasure
