Oldblood: With narrative of the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki…..

Oldblood - Kuebiko

UK Blackened Post / Doom band Oldblood have unveiled their new single Kuebiko, taken from their upcoming EP Arms To The Sky released on December 4th, 2020. Oldblood continue to pushing their brand of aural misery as far and as wide as possible. Kuebiko is the first track on Arms To The Sky and begins the EP’s narrative of the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki and the fallout caused by this devastating events. Kuebiko opens with a crushing riff designed to paint a picture of devastation right off the bat; with the song building to an explosion of its own.

Kuebiko «translates as a state of exhaustion inspired by acts of senseless violence, which force you to revise your image of what can happen in this world» which is something we wanted to convey with the grinding pace & crushing, heavy nature of the track. The lyrical themes revolve around the fact that a few men could have stopped all this before it happened, but ultimately chose not too; and we now have to live with the senseless horrors and ultimate feeling of hopelessness they unleashed.

«Oldblood are different…. A threatening sound that suits the dark, doleful music perfectly….. A very impressive, very theatrical performance. If you want something with a bit more edge, to freeze the blood in your veins and all delivered with a theatrical performance; then pick Oldblood », states Loud Enough Magazine.

Formed in north London in 2018, Oldblood have set about combining the members various musical tastes into one cohesive, blackened monstrosity – merging elements of doom, punk, post-metal and black metal to form a sound that has turned heads since their debut live show supporting Ohems & Boss Keloid through to supporting doom titans Conan along with headlining their own shows.

Arms To The Sky is 4 tracks themed around the dropping of the atomic bomb over Hiroshima – both aurally and lyrically. Crushing riffs combined with devastating melodies that paint an agonized picture of life before, during and after the nuclear explosion.

Nuclear Blues swaggers out of the gate with a bluesy riff, that descends into a double time frenzy before unraveling into a state of exhaustion. Los Alamos is an atmospheric telling of the story of the creation of the atomic bomb & the final track Alone tells the story of She. She stands alone in the devastation caused by the atomic blast and having lost everything; she wonders what to do with her life.

Lee Barter – Drums

Arms To The Sky was recorded at No Studio & produced by Joe Clayton (Leeched, Pijn, Ithaca, Wren, Mountain Caller).

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6731 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
