Crematory – Oblivion19th April 2018 0 By John Deaux
It’s not every day you come across a Gothic Metal band with commercial accessibility, well Crematory have certainly done that with Oblivion. The last time I heard an album similar to this in terms of musicality was Paradise Losts, One Second album
With its mix of Felix delivering his death metal growl coupled with new member Tosse, who is not only providing rhythm guitar but he’s also adding clean vocals has given them a whole new dimension. The other newbies, bassist Jason Mathias and Rolf Munkes on lead guitar have propelled Crematory to a new level.
Lyrically the album deals with life and agony along with having someone in your life that helps keep you whole.
The tracks that have been lifted from this album are a good representation of what you can expect from this 53 minute, 13 track record. Ridiculously technical guitar solos, Katrins subtle use of keys, programmed drums and an album that will help with a cardio workout at the gym.
There’s not a track I skip on this album (which believe me is a novelty). It’s a solid record and the added bonus that it’s released on vinyl (with the CD enclosed) is superb (more labels need to do this instead of making you buy the album twice).
