Oblivion Premiere “Threshold” Lyric Video

Oblivion have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Threshold.” This track is from the band’s new self-titled album, which will be released on January 21. Guitarist Nick Vasallo commented:

“Our new track “Threshold” is our bleakest and darkest track to date. It is about the consumption of the earth and end of humanity. I composed it while battling the peak of the 2016 flu virus, fever ridden and unable to sleep. The harmonies and angular melodies are unstable. The lyrics as sung in my lowest register. Ben and Ted played with their darkest guitar tones. Behold…THRESHOLD”
