Requiem For Oblivion are a band from Eerie, Pennsylvania that plays a very progressive and technical form of death metal with some ambient elements and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Burning Nation".
Drum beats and technical guitar leads start off the album along with some heavy riffing and death metal growls a few seconds later while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and after awhile prog elements and high pitched screams are added onto the recording.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also using a great amount of melody and they also display a great amount of talent and skill as musicians and as the album progresses clean playing and ambient elements are added onto the recording and a couple of songs also adds in melodic vocals.
Requiem For Oblivion plays a style of death metal that is very progressive and technical while also adding in touches of ambient which also gives the songs more originality, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover inner struggles and humanity themes.
In my opinion Requiem For Oblivion are a very great sounding progressive and technical death metal band with elements of ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Shards Of Glass" "Burning Nation" and "Disguised". 8 out of 10.
