Decibel Magazine has premiered new track "Aokigahara" from Minnesota Tech-Death Brutes FACE OF OBLIVION. The song title refers to a place at the base of Mount Fuji (Japan) known as the Suicide Forest or Sea of Trees that has served as a destination for those seeking to meet one's maker. A child's voice heard in the song adds a distinct chill to the pummel. Stream the song exclusively by visiting the following link.
FACE OF OBLIVION will release sophomore album Cataclysmic Desolation November 11 on Comatose Music. Pre-orders are now available at this location.
Now fronted by veteran vocalist Jesse Watson (INCINERATE), FACE OF OBLIVION are primed and ready to unleash their cacophonous soundtrack for the inevitable extinction that awaits mankind. Frenzied speed coupled with unparalleled technique come together to shape this massive overkill of head crushing barbarity. No one is safe, the end haunts us all, prepare for desolation...

FACE OF OBLIVION's roots were laid by Hensley and Brandon writing songs on guitar, then Ogar and Matt Preston (Fetus Heist) came into the band and the brutality got ratcheted up a few notches. Unfortunately shit happened and Matt decided to part ways with the band. But luckily the guys were able to rebound by quickly convincing James Lee (ex-ORIGIN) to take over duties on the mic and lyrics. The band finally got Cole Gunther (What Lies Within, ex-Bodies in Wake) throwing down on the 6 string bass, completing the line-up. FACE OF OBLIVION signed to Comatose Music and then released debut album The Embers of Man in 2011.
In 2015 the group made the extremely difficult decision to part ways with vocalist James Lee. While this unfortunately closes a great chapter in the band's history, great things are on the horizon, including the upcoming release of Cataclysmic Desolation.
