review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
From the abyss
of melancholic darkness.
(new dawn series) presents us another new Italian talented band: OBLIVIO.
the abyss of melancholic darkness, they’re the perfect fusion of
melancholic dark, and classic post avant-garde rock.
underline the great voice of the singer, Massimo that gives value to
album is a travel into the deepest dark sensations that are played into
an interesting contest that put in evidence the approach of the band
that prefers to give importance to an essential arrangement that
emphasize Massimo’s voice and the deep sound of piano & guitar…
my opinion, Massimo should improve his English pronunciation, but the
rest is great in every song!!!
whole album is full of interesting ideas, but when the band finds the
comes out songs like… “No
sense of me” that is a true diamond
that shine upon this lake of tears…
valorized by Francesca Iacorossi that duets with Massimo in a
great style…This song is a fantastic dark rock song sung with English
and also Italian lyrics that perfectly mixed.
“The last Illusion” that is an instrumental fashion post-dark song full of melancholy; it’s characterized by the the great arrangement based on a great deep impact created by the two guitars that are involved by the magniloquence of the keyboard and a decaying rhythmic session…
Sequence” is based on a great refrain and it shows the ability of the band to find also great melodic
solutions into darkness…I still underline the mix of Italian and
English lyrics that is a succeeded experiment .
another great instrumental track that is “F.B.R.”…that is based on
the same way of the previous one…great emotions….dark sensations…
Memories” is pure melancholy!!! It seems a song that takes
inspirations from Mogway, Novembre and The Cure …a perfect mixture
among these bands…
arrangements I underline the good use of guitars that are valorized by
various personal effects and sensual harmonization …and
it seems a sort of mark for this band that prefers to give importance to
this aspect …
course great value also for the keyboard/Adriano Cori, that always
finds the right harmony by great chords…
production is almost good, it can be improved in some particulars but
the quality is, without shadows of doubts, is up to the task.
my personal opinion the less inspired songs are the first , the second
and the fifth track that, in my opinion, are not on the same level of
conclusion, this is a good travel into the melancholic dark,
interpreted by a modern post-rock approach…
