Oblivion Myth’s ‘Fan Exclusive Download’
Nashville, Tennessee is the home of a Prog Power Metal band named Oblivion Myth. It’s a band formed in 2006 and singing in the spirit of true Power Metal about magic, fantasy and honor and the likes. Apparently they’re doing well locally, as their new single, called War Child, made its debut on Nashville’s The Buzz radio station. Unfortunately their signal doesn’t quite manage to reach myself on the other side of the Atlantic Pond, but luckily there’s internet!
Oblivion Myth has made the track available for ‘Fan Exclusive Download’ as they call it. That means you can go to their social media pages, sign up for their mailing list and you get a free fuckin’ download. How hard is that?!
Not hard at all, and just so you were wondering, it’s worth your effort too! 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. Vocals by fresh frontman Ray LeGrand deliver a load of times past. Quoting the band, they’re part of “the New Wave of Traditional Metal”.
Between Light and Shadow was the band’s last effort, from 2008. War Child is the first track released of a to-be album, and the first release in which LeGrand can be heard. To download the track for free, just go to ReverbNation and press play on the song (ignore the one that starts playing as you open the page, as that’ll cut off after 30 seconds). Once you’ve pressed play, follow the instructions prompted. Simple!
If you’ve got time to spare, you can also visit the band at its official website, where you can also soak in some of their older material.
