LP version. Limited edition fluorescent green vinyl. Oreyeon's sophomore album, Ode To Oblivion comes after two years of experimental sessions in their little studio recording nestled between the sea and the mountains in the northwest of Italy. This new full-length combines all band members' musical influences and takes shape leaving behind and going beyond the rules that mostly describe the classical stoner rock genre. From the first track, a strong sense of nothingness blends into a long unsettling travel through a microcosm full of colors while black shapes lead the traveler into a spiral of nihilistic lyrics, title tracks and monolithic riffs all at the same time. A pinch of the '90s vocals legacy gives this full length a gloominess that crowns a long period of rehearsals playing and jamming over all sorts of musical borders. The album has a start and an ending; along with what's in the middle, it all seems to be connected by a long line of heavy-psych-stoner rifts that evokes the feeling of listening to the mighty Blues For The Red Sun (1992) from desert legends Kyuss. It sounds like a long suite that never ends; the vocal structures and harmonization are more complex, and melodically richer while the music tends towards a heavier path, taking cues from way different kinds of genres and band references.
