Ageless Oblivion "Temples of Transcendent Evolution"
Ageless Oblivion are a Technical/ Progressive/ Death Metal (not Deathcore... please, this is not about that shit) band from Hampshire UK and their debut album, "Temples Of Transcendent Evolution", is a strong and powerful piece of work that will make your head spin like a fuckin' cat in a blender. Not a pretty image to picture in your head... but it's true. I'm not the biggest Technical/Slamming Death Metal aficionado, i usually like my Death Metal all rotten and putrid, but when i heard the first tracks of "Temples Of Transcendent Evolution", i thought: "Wow... this is solid shit.." and the best thing is that this isn't Deathcore, no skyscraper breakdowns and pig vocals and all that shit. The track "Reclamation" is one fucking hell of a track.. so good. The elements of Ageless Oblivion are rather young, and they still have a long way to go, but for a first release they have made a really great job. On the band's Facebook they cite such influences as Nile, Decapitated, Neurosis, Cult Of Luna, and guess what... Akercocke. Well, i can't hear any Neurosis of Cult Of Luna here, or maybe it passes so fast that i miss it at a blink of an eye, but the brutality of Nile and Decapitated allied with the technical moves of Akercocke are in fact there. In general, this is one hell of a way to start. You can get this album here.
