Oblivion Myth is excited to be back in the studio today. The band has made a number of efforts at following up their 2008 debut CD "Between Light and Shadow", but so far, each attempt has failed to get the bands seal of approval. Partly in jest, frontman Ray LeGrand suggests, "Maybe we shouldn't have called this one Into The Valley of Unrest since we seem to be loosing sleep over getting this one out there". With that sentiment in mind, Oblivion Myth have decided to abandon their effort to record and release a CD project and instead are focused on pushing out singles. Today, the band plans to work on, "War Child", a recent fan favorite from OM's live show.
Departure of Robert Blake Dellinger, Bassist
Oblivion Myth has confirmed the departure of bassist Robert Blake Delliner in the latter portion of May 2011. Dellinger, who had come into the band only a few months earlier, had wowed crowds with his prowess and mastery of his instrument which didn’t make for an easy decision by the remaining band members. "We took some time to try to work through a difference in vision and direction" stated frontman, Ray LeGrand, "but when it became apparent that we had reached an impasse the decision was unanimous among the remaining members". Guitarist Chris Selby was quoted as saying, "Blake is a very talented bassist and will no doubt turn up somewhere very quickly". The band is still at work in the studio and will turn their focus to filling the void left by Dellinger in a few weeks. As for upcoming shows, the band has indicated that they will again return to a four piece on stage and intend to play without a bassist until one can be found.
With the “retro-thrash” trend in full-swing, and hordes of bands trying to re-create “old school metal”, Texas monsters WARBEAST offer the real thing. Their music is not the result of careful study of 80’s thrash or classic metal; it just comes naturally because that is who they are. "Krush The Enemy", their debut CD on Philip Anselmo’s Housecore Records, features ten tracks covering a wide range of metal terrain aimed squarely at the neck-snapping headbanger in the front row. For WARBEAST, “metal” means high speed riffing, thunderous double bass, roaring vocals and plenty of blazing guitar solos. Oblivion Myth is excited to be sharing a stage with WARBEAST and fellow Nashville Metal Band, Voodoo Prophet at The Rutledge in Nashville on Sunday, May 15th, 2011. "OM's traditional roots and Voodoo's power should mesh well with the WARBEAST onslaught!" said OM frontman Ray LeGrand in his kitchen, while whipping up a batch of his 'ginger elixir' for the show. He continued by saying, "These are the kinds of shows we like; getting out there with regional/national touring bands along with other amazing Nashville talent".

Great Show at The Muse, Nashville April 2nd!
Thank you so much to all the people who came out to The Muse in Nashville, TN on Saturday April 2nd, 2011. It was an amazing night and one to remember for sure. We were glad to be able to share it with out of towners "Poetry of the Dead" and "Dust and Bones" as well as our Nashville Brethren, "Piranah"!
The room was jam packed with people and there were a bunch of you watching LIVE on U-Stream as well - Thank you!
This was our first night with NEW BASSIST, Blake Dellinger and man did he tear it up! It was amazing to watch Blake and Patrick rip out a little jam together, even stopping on the same beat without even looking - That's Chemistry!
Oblivion Myth has a great history and has had a number of remarkable talents in the band, but this lineup just feels special... Watch for us!
Both Keith and Patrick have been nominated for Best Metal Guitarist and Best Metal Drummer at the "Music City Mayhem Awards", brought to you by our good friend Bonnie Neves of Dungeon Promotions. The award show is this coming Saturday, April 9th at The Rutledge. Ray LeGrand will also be presenting two awards - Don't miss it!
Your next chance to catch OM Live will be at The Limit on Printer's Alley in Nashville, TN on April 23rd with Error51 and The Destructions!
Oblivion Myth Announces Blake Dellinger as New Bassist!
It can be said that Oblivion Myth are a band of focused individuals who know what they want and will not compromise! As the search for a permanent bassist was approaching the 1 year mark and the band has been doing live shows without a bassist, there have been a number of comments from the fans. People who have not caught the live show without a bassist on stage have told the band that they should consider lowering their standards so they can find someone. People who have seen the show have commented that it was amazing to note that a Metal Band could pull it off live without a bassist. Some have even said that after seeing the band live that they didn't even need one! Well, the band has refused to compromise by lowering their standards and it looks like that will pay off! Oblivion Myth is proud to announce their new family member; bassist, Blake Dellinger! Hailing from Murfreesboro, TN; this bass prodigy started tapping and slapping the bass at a very early age. He has played the Nashville Metal Scene with the likes of Hecatomb, Armament and most recently, Plasma Fleet. Dellinger's skills are nothing shy of jaw dropping and will drive the veteran Nashville Prog/Power Metal unit into even more mind-bending technical compositions! Blake is not only a talented player, but motivated as well. With less than one week of preparation for his audition, he conquered no less than four Oblivion Myth songs and having gotten the nod from the band has learned the six song set they will be performing at The Muse on April 2nd, which will include the 9 minute epic song, "Knightserrant" for his debut! Finally, Dellinger proved that he met one of the band's other criteria, that of being a true fan, when he revealed that he had an OM poster from when he saw the band open for LA Guns hanging on his wall. Could this be the perfect fit? Time will tell, but Ray, Keith, Chris and Patrick think that the addition of Blake Dellinger to the OM Family will prove to solidify a truly remarkable lineup!
