Sonisk Blodbad: The Shores Of Oblivion

The Shores of Oblivion was released in late April and is the latest album from Bergen based electronica act Sonisk Blodbad, a project led by Ole Christensen.

As someone who isn’t a massive fan of electronic music I can see both the good and bad in an album like this one. On one hand tracks like the Suicide influenced ‘Alan Vega 2.0’ or the dreamy pink-floyd-esque title track ‘The Shores of Oblivion’ captivate me through their creativity, and via veiled stylistic references to bands that are more familiar to my ears. On the other hand, a track such as "Photons" is too close to electronic dance music for my taste, and a track like "Aspik" is at the most sparse and mundane end of the electronic music spectrum imaginable.

I’m sure The Shores of Oblivion is a quality release for what it is, but unfortunately this is not a style of music I find to be overly rewarding to listen to.
