After Oblivion - Vultures EP (2011)
AFTER OBLIVION is the the first death metal band to be signed by Metal On Metal Records. Label owner Jowita Kaminska-Peruzzi states: "We are not much into death metal. We like some classic and even contemporary bands, but really very few, so obviously we are extremely picky as fans when it comes to this genre. And a death metal band has to completely blow us away to pique our interest as the label. Such was the case with AFTER OBLIVION. When they contacted us, we listened to the three songs from their 2011 EP, 'Vultures', then listened again... and again. We could (and did) listen to them on a loop for hours... Why? 'Cause we love DEATH and AFTER OBLIVION is so uncannily similar to Chuck's [Schuldiner] band, in particular their '90s era (when you hear those vocals, you may think it's Chuck himself!), we could only succumb to this new amazing band."
AFTER OBLIVION hails from the still undiscovered country when it comes to metal music: Bosnia and Herzegovina. The mastermind behind the band, guitarist, vocalist, composer and the sole member in the beginning, Adnan Hatic, formed it in 2007 on the ashes of his previous death metal band PATH BEYOND SERENITY (in which he had played since 1999). The band plays technical and atmospheric death metal with some thrash elements that should appeal not only to all fans of DEATH, but also PESTILENCE, ATHEIST, KREATOR, SACRIFICE, VEKTOR, GORGUTS, AGONIZE (another band with Adnan on vocals and guitars), CYNIC and CORONER.
AFTER OBLIVION's full-length debut, "Stamina", will be released in October.
