Oblivion Circle are a band from Texas that plays a mixture of melodic black, death metal and metalcore and this is a review of their self titled 2016 ep which was released by Sepulchral Silence Records.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the ep and after awhile high pitched black metal screams are added onto the recording and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and death metal growls can also be heard at times and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and as the ep progresses the songs also start incorporating more elements of metalcore.
Oblivion Circle plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in the melodic styles of black and death metal and also bring in elements of metalcore to create a style of their own, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover darkness and war themes.
In my opinion Oblivion Circle are a very great sounding mixture of melodic black, death metal and metalcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Whispers Of War" and "With Death Comes Cleansing". 8 out of 10.
