Oblivion, the band consisting of Nick Vasallo (ex-Antagony) on vocals and bass, Ben Orum (All Shall Perish, ex-Antagony) and Ted O'Neill ( ex-Alchemicon) on guitars, and drum virtuoso Luis Martinez (ex-Antagony, ex-The Zenith Passage), dropped its new album The Path Toward… in November 2017, and you can check out the band's dark music video for the song "It Has Become" above.
"'It Has Become' represents some of the main themes from The Path Towards…: Despite the billions of years of evolution leading to humanity’s total preeminence, we have created a technological dominion that is quickly growing out of our reach.
The intertribal conflict and desire for material wealth that benefitted us millenia ago in a harsher, simpler world now chains us to the bottom of a rising ocean in which survival demands unity and order at a higher level. Our failure to surpass our limitations leaves a clear niche for a superior competitor to fill, to displace us, and to continue the cycle of oblivion."
Oh, and you should grab The Path Toward… below.
