Biography

Oblivion Myth creates the perfect recipe of sonic thunder by merging the best flavors of original hard rock and progressive power metal. Originating from Nashville, Tennessee the band has a unique, hard-driving sound that is a combination of influences from Iron Maiden, Dream Theater, Symphony X, and Rush and a clean, wide-range vocal style that's influenced by Judas Priest and Queen. The band is renowned for presenting the most exciting and memorable live performance an audience will ever see and guaranteed to never forget. The band offers a unique and distinctly compelling performance that appeals to audiences of a wide age range, from young to old. Also unique to the band is the nature and texture of the lyrics. The band presents positive, uplifting and hopeful messages of life; past, present and future. The band's motto: "Eternity is real, Oblivion is just a Myth".

The band released a new album in 2016 entitled "Inside the Mirror" and it is receiving much positive attention. It was awarded Album of the Year by Angelic Warlord. The band is currently doing a regional tour in support of the album.

"Inside The Mirror is not so much the best album I have heard in 2016 (at least up to this point), but perhaps the best album I have heard in the past several years... I esteem Inside The Mirror to such an extent that if I had delayed writing the article by several months I would easily have included it and changed the title to The ELEVEN Best Albums Of The Past Ten Years in the process!" ...Angelic Warlord, Sept. 6, 2016.

"Oblivion Myth returns with their magnum opus "Inside The Mirror" a Powerful and Majestic slab of classic metal that scorches with the heat of a thousand suns. A must have for any metalhead!" ...Mike "The Big Cheese" Catricola, The Heavy Metal Mayhem Radio Show

Lyrics

War Child

Written By: Keith Smith,Patrick Nickell,Chris Selby, Chris Selby

In the distance You hear the warning
Of a Fateful Fiery Fiend and his Spirit’s burning

On the horizon The end of the Light
A Child will be born to a Star of the Night

The Chosen One Will deliver us
From the pain and wash away our tears with Reign

Salvation calls It rules over all
A never ending bliss from our damnation

War Child rise Lift our spirits high
Fire in Your eyes War Child rise

This Child of war Will end it all
His voice will pierce the Darkness as Faith and Hope restores

On wings of Grace With fire in His eyes
Bring an end to suffering with everlasting life

War Child rise Lift our spirits high
Fire in Your eyes War Child rise

Mystique

Written By: Keith Smith

Verse 1
Angels No More Sing, Fall
Demons Answer The Call
Darkness Forming All Around Me
Fighting For The Golden Halls

Chorus
All The World's A Stage For Me
And Still I See & Reach Empyrean Heaven
After (Last : Now That) I Have Captured My Mystique
All Will Bear Witness To The Creation

Verse 2
Vengeance, Malice Of The Ring
Forgotten Horrors To You, I sing
Distant Atmosphere In My Sight
O’ Bearer Of The Light

Chorus

Verse 3
They Try To Destroy Us All
All Immortal Ones Will Fall
Turn Your Face To The Rising Sun
Shadows Will Fall Behind You
