Oblitera is a Death Metal band from Mumbai, India. Deriving inspiration from old school Death bands like Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, Death, Dying Fetus, Nile, Cryptopsy, and some Thrash bands like Slayer, early Sepultura, early Kreator etc. The band has just released their debut single ‘Living Refusal’.
“Despite our aforementioned musical influences, we aim at creating our own unique sound in our songs. Being diehard fans of Psychological Thriller/ Horror movies like Shutter Island, Memento, Mulholland Drive, Inland Empire, The Shining, The Sixth Sense, Repulsion, etc; we try to explore the dark and psychotic side of the human mind through our lyrics. Our first single speaks about a serial killer, who after years of dealing with neglect and pain, develops a deranged psyche that finds solace in dark entities which haunt the sanity of moral conduct.
In order to render a cinematic touch to our music video, we approached Jamin Winans and Kiowa Winans from Double Edge films – the makers of the 2009 film Ink. They were kind enough to let us use some mesmerizing clips from their amazing movie which were later edited along with our band footage by our friend Rishikesh Yawalkar.”
The band is currently working on more original songs and will release their 2nd music video tentatively around May or June. The song will be called Caves of Disembowelment.
