Oubliette are a band from Murfreesboro, Tennessee that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "The Passage" which will be released in July by The Artisan Era.
A very fast sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style as well as the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and acoustic guitars are also added onto some of the tracks.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams along with the music also mixing in a great amount of melodic death metal elements as well as one of the tracks introducing synths onto the recording and spoken word parts and stringed instruments can also be heard briefly and as the album progresses their is also a brief use of female vocals, a few of the later tracks are also very long and epic in length.
Oubliette plays a musical style that takes the melodic sides of black and death metal and mixes them with some progressive structures to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album based upon loss and grief.
In my opinion Oubliette are a very great sounding melodic mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Pale Innocence" "Elegy" and "The Passage". 8 out of 10.
