Oracle - Perseverance - Reviewed At Jenny Tate ! Check it out here at this link: https://jennytate.wordpress.com/2021/10/26/oracle-perseverance/
Introducing ‘Perseverance’, recently released video, from Alabama metal band, Oracle. The trio of father and son, Trey (drums) and Ray (bass) Ozinga are joined by Jason Long, on vocals and guitar. They were founded in 2016. Oracle term themselves extreme, southern groove metal. What is clear is that the atmosphere of their music speaks for itself. Perseverance – A gradual, enigmatic intro, with a lot of bass. Emerging, into a classic heavy metal sound, with drums featuring, heavily. Dark tones fit the lyrics, though there’s softness within the heaviness aswell. Tech metal melodies and anthemic backing vocals, bringing a slight pirate metal atmosphere. Strong riffage, with industrial vibes. The percussive beats work and move well inside these rhythms. It’s carefully paced, with consistent high quality, throughout. Vocally, it weaves between melodic and death, showing equal capability in both. It’s a very decent track, with a sophisticated structure. Production and performance equally impressive and definitely one to listen to, on repeat. Good balance of thrash, melodic metal and dark atmospherics.
