Obtest is a pagan black metal band from Vilnius, Lithuania. They started playing in 1992 as brutal death metal act, but soon changed the style to black metal. Their lyrics are concerned with Lithuanian mythology and are sung in Lithuanian, though a few of the songs on their demos were in English. The band currently refers their music style as "heathen war heavy metal."
