4.0 out of 5 stars Much Better 22 Jan 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I've been following Benedictum since their debut album, Uncreation, because it was full of great songs, excellent performances, especially from power house vocalist Veronica Freeman and a tidy production. After being a little undwhelmed with their follow up, Season of Tragedy and finding their 3rd album, Dominion, a snooze fest, I began to think that Benedictum had used up all their good ideas on their debut. Thankfully, I was wrong. Obey is an entertaining and consistent listen from start to finish with several highlights along the way. It's not on par with Uncreation but it has an attitude and glut of ideas somewhat lacking in their previous 2 releases.

Dancing that fine line between classic rock and modern metal, their style of Dio vs Accept (I am sure many would disagree with this) with female vocals has developed good company of late with the likes of A Sound Of Thunder and Battle Beast, all, arguably, peers for this band.

The production is raw and full of energy. The performances are solid with Veronica, once again, standing out with her unique rasp, although she does seem to strain on the higher notes at times. If you are a Benedictum fan then this will please you greatly, but it is also strong enough to win over some new fans because the band have found that edge again which drew me to them in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent, pure hearted metal for those that love Dio-style metal in its truest form. 2 Jan 2014
By Craig Wisnom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Benedictum eschews a lot of modern takes on metal. It's a far cry from the harsh, blast-beat ridden extremity that characterizes mainstream assessment of current "heavy metal." Yet it's also far more grounded and direct than the Rhapsody and similar elegant power metal bands. At its heart, this has the crunchy riffs and solid heaviness to make you feel its metal to the core, but also has incredibly written melodies that are presented so powerfully by Veronica Freeman's incredible voice. All four of the Benedictum albums have been solid, but this seems to come back even more to its classic roots with powerfully wrought but undeniably melodic vocals. Again, while it's not like Veronica sounds like Ronnie James Dio, it's the same type of emotionally charged, devastatingly vibrant vocals that carries the album. Highly recommended for all fans of traditional metal, but it's not limited to being a caricature or pale copy of that sound. Purely awesome!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the powerhouse Dominion was, but still a solid heavy metal album 7 July 2014
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Released in the closing days of 2013, Obey is the fourth studio album from US-based traditional metal band Benedictum. The band gets saddled - unfairly in my opinion - with the "female-fronted metal" tag, but from the very start they've brought the metal in a big way. Yes, their singer is a woman - the very powerful Veronica Freeman - but that's not some gimmick the band is relying on.

Benedictum plays full-on traditional heavy metal inspired by Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Dio-era Black Sabbath and Accept. This is not light and airy "gothic" or operatic stuff. It's kick in the teeth, headbanging heavy metal full of pounding rhythms, heavy guitar (with a solid melodic aspect), and a strong, powerful vocal performance.

Benedictum had back-to-back amazing releases with 2008's Seasons of Tragedy and 2011's Dominion, but Obey falls a bit short of those two overall. The musicianship and vocals are still very solid, but the songwriting isn't quite as impressive. With Dominion in particular, you could tell on first listen that there were several songs that were going to stay with you long after the disc stopped spinning. I just don't get that here. The songs on Obey are all solid and enjoyable, but after several spins there aren't any - with the possible exception of "Cry" (featuring a duet with former Black Sabbath singer Tony Martin) - that really stayed with me.

It didn't quite live up to my admittedly high expectations, but Obey is still a very solid traditional metal album, and hey, an "average" Benedictum album is still heads above most of the competition. If you're already a Benedictum fan, you'll still want to get a copy of this album. If you're unfamiliar with the band, but are into bands like Accept, Warlock, Judas Priest and Chastain. You may want to skip Obey in favor of Seasons of Tragedy or Dominion.

Disclosure: I was given a MP3 copy of this album by the label for review.
