OBLITERATION is a young death metal band from Kolbotn (home of DARKTHRONE, AURA NOIR, LAMENTED SOULS among others), Norway. They started out in 2001 and have ever since left a trail of destruction behind them with hellblazing gigs and rock solid releases. After a rehearsal demo in 2006 OBLITERATION were asked to sign with cult label Tyrant Syndicate, a sub-label of Peaceville records, which is run by Nocturno Culto of DARKTHRONE. OBLITERATION released the debut album "Perpetual Decay" in may 2007 which got great reviews worldwide, and a UK tour with doomsters RAMESSES followed. Now in 2009 OBLITERATION are about to unleashed upon this earth their second album, Nekrospalms. Nekropsalms is recorded by the band themselves in their own studio at Kolbotn in one week, DIY style.
Though it's not nearly as chaotic or technically adept, the album reminds of Gorguts' Obscura in so much that it transforms the death metal tradition into a nubile realm of decadent exploration. I would certainly classify this as 'psychedelic' death metal. But not high off drugs. High off decay. - From the Dust Returned4/5
