Oblisk officially entered the Detroit music scene in 2004. The players have changed since its inception, but the vision has remained the same since the beginning: to create a band with a certain musical style.
There is nothing straightforward about Oblisk's music. The elements can be categorized as experimental/psychedelic/ shoegazing/wall of sound. A dramatic soundscape- focusing heavily on a dense sound that reverberates, where tension is built and then is shattered.
The music transports you wherever you want to go: Imagine flying through a storm on an airplane, riding a train through a desert windstorm, or driving through a blizzard. Listen to the patterns created. Sometimes you can hear something forcing itself through the droning. Add subdued, sometimes haunting vocals- that is how Oblisk sounds.
Check them out live to create your own sound experience. Oblisk will be on stage tonight at the Lager House in Detroit. Purchase a copy of their latest album Weather Patterns at Candy Colored Dragon.
