American black metallers Oubliette have been making melodic black metal since 2011, though their new album The Passage is only their second album. That’s not exactly surprising when considering that among their ranks, Oubliette count members of tech death wizards Inferi, plus Enfold Darkness, Chaos Moon and others. On The Passage, Oubliette make it clear that they can stand out in the thriving USBM scene.
On new song “The Curse,” Oubliette employ three guitarists to create relentless, melodic assaults that are cold, yet surprisingly triumphant.
“After four years since releasing Apparitions and several lineup changes, we are excited to finally unleash our second album, once again through our family in The Artisan Era,” says guitarist Mike Low. “The Passage is a story of loss and grief, which comes to a tragic end. We are very proud of how everything turned out and feel like our sound and concept has been captured perfectly on the record.”
The Passage will be released July 13 on The Artisan Era.
