Oblivion Myth / Press

“In many ways, 2016 was the year of the independent release, at least when factoring how independent artist Oblivion Myth took the top spot and beat out some very tough competition in The Neal Morse Band, Theocracy and Michael Sweet. Nashville, Tennessee based quartet returns with the traditional metal mixed with strong leanings towards power metal and hard rock of its superlative sophomore album Inside The Mirror. A group whose motto is ‘Eternity is real, Oblivion is just a Myth’, Oblivion Myth has made significant steps and strides since its 2008 debut Between Shadow & Light, a fine album in its own right (referencing the 80% Angelic Warlord review).”

“The Myth Is A Reality Every once and a while a band comes along, seemingly out of nowhere, to make a huge musical AND spiritual impact. Oblivion Myth hails from Nashville, TN (not exactly “nowhere,” but hardly a city know for heavy metal!) and their music is a hard-hitting amalgam of old-school classic metal (Judas Priest/Saint) and more progressive power metal (Symphony X/Theocracy). And no, despite the blurb on their promo site, they sound nothing like Rush or Dream Theater. A good description might be a blend of Saint and Cage, sharing the vocal and lyrical similarities with the former and the aggressive guitars and drumming with the latter. It’s an impressive wall of sound for sure, with plenty of power, pomp and guitar shred. Equally impressive, though, is the lyrical approach. Instead of being moody, dark or introspective, Oblivion Myth confronts the truth of the reality in which we live, as well as the encompassing spiritual warfare over-arching our own personal battles..”

“Oblivion Myth Originating from Nashville, Tennessee the band has a unique, hard-driving sound that is a combination of influences from Stryper, Dream Theater, Symphony X, and Rush, with a clean wide-range vocal style that's influenced by Judas Priest, Queen & Kamelot. Their 2016 album "Inside the Mirror" was awarded Album of the Year by Angelic Warlord and nominated for both a NIMA award in 2017 and an Independent Music Award in 2018. 3rd album is scheduled to land in 2018.”

“Our music is in rotation on INTENSE RADIO!”

“Oblivion Myth is an IMA Nominee! The Music Resource Group and the distinguished judging panelists have announced that Oblivion Myth is Nominated in the Metal/Hardcore Album Category for Inside the Mirror in The 16th Annual Independent Music Awards! March 30-31st at The IMA Independent Music Party @ Lincoln Center, NYC”

“For years I've wondered why this band hasn't blow up & been signed to an established label. I've been a fan for years and after FINALLY seeing them live, I'm no longer just a fan, I'm officially a "FANBOY"! One day in the future, when they've finally received the fame, recognition and accolades that they deserve and when they play before hundreds of thousands of rabid Metal Maniacs at Wacken Open Air, we will look back on this night and remember in awe, how they played for us, for the Georgia Metal Alliance Int'l H.M.C. when they were still undiscovered by the rest of the world & always be grateful for it!

"Oblivion Myth blew us all away, they decimated all that they surveyed! This is true heavy metal! No sub-genre, not Power Metal, just serious classic Heavy Metal in the same vein as Judas Priest, Iced Earth & some Hammerfall sprinkled in for good measure! If you've never heard this band live (or listened to their music at all, you NEED to check them out & buy their music!) The G.M.A. has officially adopted Oblivion Myth!"

"Oblivion Myth's "Inside The Mirror" makes the Music City live up to its name. Uniquely created with a big and wide mix of energy!"

-Shelby Kennedy, Tunecore VP Entertainment Relations

"I love these guys! Their music is powerful and moving. I have had the pleasure of seeing them in concert many times. This new album carries the power of their live performance with a very masterful recording. Awesome!"

Pastor Bob Beeman, Sanctuary International

"This is an impressive solid album. And it feels like an album, which I really like! Favorite track..."Between Light and Shadow". A bright future awaits this band."

-Pat Donahoe employee for Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave)

"Oblivion Myth return with their magnum opus "Inside The Mirror" A Powerful & Majestic slab of classic metal that scorches with the heat of a thousand suns. A must have for any metalhead!"

“I really admire what you guys do.”

“Check out Oblivion Myth, you can't beat it.”

“War Child is kick-ass with that typical ancient Metal heavy chugging undertone and pounds and pounds of guitars tearing up the sky with classic riffage.”

“It seems like EVERYONE wants to hear Oblivion Myth's "War Child"”

“Oblivion Myth's "War Child" begins with blazing yet tasteful progressive metal riffs reminiscent of the great prog bands of the 80's and 90's while at the same time sounds fresh and new. The vocals kick in and provide the perfect ingredient for an in-your-face, we shall not be denied metal sound that has been sadly lacking in the music industry for far too long. Thank you, Oblivion Myth, for doing your part to bring back progressive metal \m/”

“Listening to 'War Child' by Oblivion Myth increased my heart rate, doubled my muscle mass, and made me want to throw on a Viking helmet and pillage the ends of the earth.......after this beer!”

“Oblivion Myth delivers that sound that all progressive metal lovers crave. These guys have some serious talent. A progressive music machine that can't be beat!”

“They are a really exciting band to watch and I will catch them again soon!”

“1/30/2011 -The Rutledge, Nashville A beautiful day for a metal show in the home of country music. The show included our buds in Oblivion Myth. Gotta say even without a bass player at the moment this band was on fire. Something special going on with them this night. Ray LeGrand is a welcome addition as the newest vocalist for this killer metal band. The guys are not only good players, but more importantly good dudes. Great job!!!”

“Making the trip from Nashville, OBLIVION MYTH were a seasoned bunch, with higher levels of professional and intensity... The band offered a sound rooted in traditional metal, yet straddling the line with thrash. During the –song set they aired ‘Into The Shadows’, ‘Mystique’ and the concluding ‘War Child’. Renditions of some of those tracks can be viewed on YouTube.”
