Tennessee-based melodic black metal/death metal outfit Oubliette recently announced the upcoming July 13th release of their sophomore full-length, ‘The Passage’ via The Artisan Era. Oubliette came to life in 2011 as a studio project started by husband and wife duo, Mike Low (Inferi) and Emily Low. Over time the group gained a full line-up and released their well-received debut album ‘Apparitions’ in 2014. In the time since ‘Apparitions’ was released, the group’s line-up has been re-tooled and now features two members of well-known black/death outfit Enfold Darkness in their ranks. In total, ‘The Passage’ features three guitarists, something uncommon in the world of black metal, but used to exceedingly powerful and dynamic effect here.
Today the band partnered with Lambgoat.com to launch The Raven’s Lullaby, the album’s title track and second single to air thus far. ‘The Passage’ will strongly appeal to fans of Dissection, Alcest, early-In Flames, and Moonsorrow. Stream the single below:
Oubliette guitarist Mike Low’s statement regarding ‘The Passage’:
“After four years since releasing ‘Apparitions’ and several lineup changes, we are excited to finally unleash our second album, once again through our family in The Artisan Era. ‘The Passage’ is a story of loss and grief, which comes to a tragic end. We are very proud of how everything turned out and feel like our sound and concept has been captured perfectly on the record.”
