ObliviO : Dreams are Distant Memories



Up until now every time I’ve heard a doom or doom related band from Italy it was like hearing the equivalent of what could be the music project of Argento, Fulci or Bava: dark, scary and quite bizarre. These guys on the other hand are building their music on the most mainstream attempts of Katatonia, Sentenced, Rapture and Entwine. Despite never claiming to be more innovative or complex than Nevermore, they keep you interested with their music from the beginning to the end of this album. I really enjoyed the variety of the singing styles (both male and female) like on ’Overcome’. I also like the use of Italian in some parts. Oblivio has all that is needed to stay with us for a long time in the future. I can’t pick a best track on the album, as it is extremely well worked and inspired, but I can say that the album works best in the dark through headphones.
