Oblivion Machine - "Starfield" [2012]

Artist: Oblivion Machine
Title: Starfield
Genre: Industrial Death Metal
Country: Russia
Year: 2012

Track List:
  1. Starfield
  2. Тёмные времена
  3. Призраки
  4. Suite for Alice
  5. Луна в Cкорпионе (acoustic)
  6. Surfacing (rmx)
The newest album from this relatively well-known (in the underground circles, of course) Russian industrial metal band. Of course "it isn't Fear Factory" (c), and the release in general is so-so by the world standards, but for our local scene it isn't bad at all, and if you're into futuristic metal and have nothing against female vocals in such kind of music, you'll probably like "Starfield". While it's mostly melodic death/industrial metal, there's also a lot of acoustic parts (especially in the second half of the album), and the closing track is entirely electronic. The cover art is beautiful, but I think it'd be for suitable for a progressive metal or a purely melodic death metal album.
