Requiem for Oblivion: EP 2011
Requiem for Oblivion's sound is a very dramatic atmospheric one with crashing riffs breaking things up and adding a sense of danger and hostility to the mix. There are elements of doom and death metal thrown in to spice things up a little bit.
The first track is a little more ethereal and dreamlike with nightmarish moments. It reminds me very much of Decoryah. There are ambient sounds and aggressive riffs together. The second track is much more of a straightforward metal track with occasional softer moments. Unfortunately I have not been able to listen to the third track due to recording issues, so I only have the first two to go on.
I was fairly impressed with this band. I think they have some interesting ideas and would be interested to hear a full-length from them.
