Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Germany's leading gothic metal act Crematory have rarely sounded as multi-faceted and timeless as they do on Oblivion. The group's classic trademarks, such as Felix Stass's deep growls, are still present, at the same time new influences emphasize their great commercial potential. "In particular, the sound and the selection of songs reflect the impact our three new band members have had," comments Markus Jüllich. "Tosse is a fantastic rhythm guitarist who adds even more diversity to the material with his clean vocals, and our lead guitarist Rolf enhances the record with his solos. Jason has added lots of drive to the deep frequencies, which is why we've consciously opted for a loud mix of the bass parts."
"So far we've had a special motto to set the direction of each of our albums, but Oblivion simply combines all our strengths and experience," Jüllich adds. "Over the years we've learned to blend different styles into the typical Crematory sound without ever losing sight of the importance of playing in a way that benefits our music. The motto "less is more" applies to our compositions 100 per cent. Crematory songs never lose themselves in exaggerated effects but always go the whole hog. That's partly due to the fact that we've remained very much down-to-earth."
