Czech Republic metal trio Oblomov are a force to be reckoned with, especially if you dig progressive edged black and death metal. Armed with serpentine vocals, buzzing guitars, and a strange outpouring of prog rock pretense (check out the saxophone solo from out of left field on “Starsend” as an example), this outfit can either bludgeon your ears with scathingly evil black metal or send you zooming through the cosmos with a trippy instrumental interlude like the ones found on each end of this nine-track excursion, depending on their mood. Imagine the merging of Hawkwind and Dimmu Borgir to get an idea of the outstanding aural damage this avant-garde extremist unit can muster.
