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.
In 2009 OBLITERATION unleashed upon this earth their second album, Nekropsalms through the Norwegian label Fysisk Format. “Nekropsalms” was recorded by the band themselves in their own studio at Kolbotn in one week, DIY style. “Nekropsalms” is a cosmic blend of old school death metal mixed with the best elements from doom, punk, thrash and old school black metal, and after 8 years, OBLITERATION have finally found their own repulsive style. The album got rave reviews worldwide, both in the underground and in more mainstream circuits. “Nekropsalms” was awarded "album of the year" in Norwegian magazine “Natt og Dag” in 2009, and won OSLOPRISEN for best album the same year! “Well well well, what we have here is the second album of the Kolbotn maniacs, and they have with this recording succeeded at what we in Darkthrone attempted on our “Soulside Journey” and “Goatlord” albums – a death metal masterpiece" - Fenriz of DARKTHRONE.
After the release of “Nekropsalms”, Obliteration spread their dark message throughout the earth, touring USA and the UK and had several festival appearances at Maryland Death Fest, Hole in the Sky, Oya Festivalen, Live Evil, Killtown death fest, several one-off shows and so forth.
Now, in 2013, Obliteration returns after a three year hiatus with a devastating monument of death. Recorded once again in their own DIY studio at Kolbotn, to capture the band's fire on tape, “Black Death Horizon” delivers seven sepulchral tracks of haunting death metal.
Render your soul to the Black Death Horizon!
