(TheMadIsraeli has a quick tip for you.)
Oblivion is a Bay Area band seemingly coming out of nowhere who are poised to take the death metal world by storm this year, playing a no-holds-barred, spine-crushing brand of insatiably bestial tech death that raises corpses from tombs, worms from rot, and blood from victims. After the jump are videos of portions of songs from their self-titled demo that I will be reviewing soon.
In the meantime, enjoy what you hear, and discuss. This demo is meant to serve as a teaser for their upcoming debut The Reclamation, due out later this Spring.
Oblivion’s Facebook page is here, and THIS is a link to a page that includes purchase links for the demo.
No personality. No harmony. No variance in the pace of the music. Just sounds like the same lifeless boring tune played over and over and over. Not one memorable moment.
^This guy is an idiot. This is one of the best new bands I have heard in a long time. Their harmonies are great and unique sounding. The pace is tastefully mixed up and I’ve listening to their demo everyday.
Well, I may have to reserve a spot on The List for their new album, at least as a “maybe”. I’ll wait to see what you have to say about the demo and hopefully there’ll be more to hear before the album drops.
