About The Band
Oubliette came to life in 2011 as a studio project started by husband and wife duo, Mike Low (Inferi) and vocalist Emily Low. Over time the group gained a full line-up and released their well-received debut album Apparitions in 2014. In the time since Apparitions was released, the group’s line-up has been re-tooled and now features two members of well-known black/death outfit Enfold Darkness in their ranks. The Passage sees Oubliette delivering their most sophisticated and mournful material to date, stirring melodic black/death is on the horizon.
Oubliette guitarist Mike Low’s statement regarding The Passage
“After four years since releasing “Apparitions” and several lineup changes, we are excited to finally unleash our second album, once again through our family in The Artisan Era. “The Passage” is a story of loss and grief, which comes to a tragic end. We are very proud of how everything turned out and feel like our sound and concept has been captured perfectly on the record.”
