OBLITERATION – New Album ’Cenotaph Obscure’ – Details Revealed
Norwegian Death Metallers OBLITERATION will release their fourth studio album titled “Cenotaph Obscure” on November 23rd via Indie Recordings!

The band will also hit European roads this Fall, together with The Ugliest Band in the World, Aura Noir, and Norwegian thrash force Vorbid.
Following their now classic Nekropsalms (2009) and the harrowing Black Death Horizon (2013), the latest offering further expands on the quartet’s trademark sound; lead heavy oldschool death metal with distinct flavours of both doom and black metal. Inventive yet never difficult to grasp, technical without wankery and obscure without being diffuse, OBLITERATION are masters at their craft. Cenotaph Obscure was recorded in Studio Cobra, Stockholm with Martin “Konie” Ehrencrona at the helm, lending the album an organic yet in your face production. In perfect keeping with the music, the lyrics deal with dystopic, apocalyptic themes, extinct civilizations and interdimensional portals etc. With Cenotaph Obscure, OBLITERATION cement their status as leaders in the Norwegian death metal scene, delivering a grizzly yet flawless monument to Death metal the way it was meant to be; obscure, ominous and unpredictable.”- Einar Sjursø ( Virus, Infernö.
