OBLIVION MACHINE is one of the most unexpected and original bands on contemporary Russian
scene. The band is formed by two brothers Alex and Konstantine in spring 2003 in Saratov.
From the very beginning they aimed to diversify the common death sound with the help of
electronics. In 2005 brothers moved to Moscow and headed for mixing of traditional riffs
and electronic samples and beats once and for all. After the first experiments took the
shape of demo E_X_I_L_E joined the band as bass player. From that moment the new period in
the band development started - Oblivion Machine played several successful concerts in
Russia and then the band made for studio to record the full-length album. Music
accumulates complicated arrangements and deep atmosphere. Disc design is done by E_X_I_L_E
and cover artwork is painted by Alexey "Gutalin" Kozhanov - the digital painter working in
Gigeresque style. Also in one of the songs vocalist of the Fetal Decay band Dmitry Orlov
participates. After recording of the album which was named "Unnatural & Wrong" musicians
decide to shoot a music video to support the album. They thoroughly look for the suitable
location for shooting while they set their choice on the old military bunker build in
1950s which is 60 meters under. The band sensu stricto plunges into "underground" together
with shooting command of Foxland Studio. "In this video we tried to reproduce the idea of
the whole album, - says Alex. - Antigod (i.e. worm in my mind) is the character which goes
through the all songs of the album. He tries to turn his live around, he struggles with
himself but he loses this war. We depicted the blind martyr seeking after the exit from
the labyrinth - one shouldn't rely on getting a clap for the hell of it in his life.
Besides we also proceeded from the name of the album "Unnatural & Wrong". We show a pretty
girl playing with loathsome thing - from here come all the insects on her body". A1 TV
channel accepts the completed video into rotation, and also band gets some interesting
suggestions from western agencies. However Oblivion Machine is not going to stop at what
has been accomplished. Nowadays the band prepares material for the second album in which
they will proceed with experiments with sound.
