How do you guys feel about melodic death metal? It’s pretty much non-stop insanity from start to finish, whether it’s from the death vocals drowning out your ear drums or the killer guitar riffs turning your insides into puree…elegantly, of course. Bands like At The Gates and Dark Tranquility come to mind.

But now there’s new band on the horizon that goes by the name of Embers of Oblivion. Hailing from the Netherlands, Embers of Oblivion just released their self-titled debut record back in June of this year and have made it clear that they are far from rookies. Not only is their debut release an amazingly solid record, the band recorded, mixed, produced and released it themselves! Say what? These guys are killing it.

My Song of the Week is Embers of Oblivion’s title track. This is the best track from their record. All of the components of the song are perfectly balanced and uniquely structured, making for a rightful representation of the band. There’s major speed and aggression with catchy melodies serving as the glue between the two. Listen to the impressive track below and please support the band by purchasing their killer debut record:
