The new Oblivion Myth album is finished. It is masterfully recorded by Curtis Erdek at Audiotopia Recording Studios in Lavergne, TN, and mixed/mastered by Andy Freeman at Big Andy Studios in Ocala Florida. The album sounds big and bright. We are so delighted to have Chris Selby back in the Oblivion Myth family, reunited with Keith Smith as our guitar duo. Newest member Ryan Mark has blown everyone away with his bass playing and multi-instrumentalist talents. We are in the process of pitching it to different labels, and having a talk with a very prominent album cover artist that we hope we can work with...

“So we turn over our recording project to our Producer, Andy Freeman, who was actually the singer on the first Oblivion Myth album. We want him to take his time with it, so we are looking at a spring 2020 release. There are 11 tracks, including a short symphonic intro composed by bassist Ryan Mark.
“The format will be a natural evolution from Inside The Mirror. We'll have scriptural references associated with each song that inspired or help explain the lyrics and where we were coming from. We'll make real CDs with full-size jewel cases as well as offering the album on every streaming and download site.
“The band now starts rehearsing after a long summer of recording and making all sorts of tweaks and edits in the project. We actually spent probably quite a bit more studio time on this new album than previously, and we think you will hear the difference. It's going to be more polished, more layers, more complete.
“I'm really proud of how Keith Smith's guitar playing has taken a quantum leap forward. With original rhythm player Chris Selby now back in the lineup, Keith has the solid partner he's wanted so that he can evolve into a shredding lead player, and I think you'll hear the difference on this new album. We think this is the strongest lineup the band has ever had, and Ryan Mark on bass is a big part of that, he is an awesome musician, multi-instrumentalist, composer, writer, and performer. Bob Schultz tried some new things on drums, and I was able to hit some sick high notes i think metal fans will appreciate.”
Oblivion Myth's music knows that The Struggle Is Real, we all face these challenges and temptations in our daily lives on this planet Earth, we all go through trials and this experience is what binds us together and makes us One. The music offers a positive contrast to the typical doom-and-gloom angst found in some heavy metal. It questions, it looks for answers, and it appeals to Divine Providence for guidance. The songs will speak to you, will make you think and give you strength while sending you on a roller coaster of intense, hard-driving, head-banging metal music ride.
The Band's new CD, "INSIDE THE MIRROR", released July 8 2016, is their best work yet. Recorded by Curtis Erdek, mixed and mastered by Andy Freeman, this team effort of over 65 minutes of original, mind-blowing metal music, complete with conceptual interludes, is an amazing journey that takes you through time and space, and into the most dangerous realm of all -your own heart and mind. "INSIDE THE MIRROR" is available for physical purchase through CD Baby, and can be obtained at all digital media distribution sites like iTunes and Amazon.
Currently the band is touring in support of their new album, and making new fans everywhere they play. They are renowned for putting on the most energetic, exciting and entertaining concert performances ever seen. Their dynamic sound, endless energy and exceptional skills are showcased every time they perform. These players are for real, they bring it live, and you will see, hear and feel their talent coming through loud and clear! You will never forget the thrill of a live Oblivion Myth concert, that's a promise!
