The haunted monotone vocals and abstract gloomy lyrical content contribute greatly to the bleak atmosphere, but the instrumental part of the music is not exactly in the light department either. There are other moods in the music than pitch black darkness though. The occasional nod towards some sort of twisted surf music and what I'd characterize as spy movie soundtrack tendencies on "Gravity Seeker" are examples of that.
The percussion on "Phantom Oil Slick" is also a nice touch, which provides that track with a deranged tribal element. It's not showed down your throat though, because Virus are clever enough to incorporate those elements in a relatively subtle manner, which go along well with their core style.
So upon conclusion this is another high quality release by Virus and fans of the band can safely spend their hard earned money on this one. It's delightfully familiar without sounding too derivative of past releases, which of course also means that "Memento Collider" probably won't win over listeners who didn't enjoy the band's other releases.
I'm sure Virus can live with that though, as they pretty surely don't play this type of music for commercial reasons although we all need bread on the table. There's no mistaking the fact that this is a band who creates exactly this type of music for pure artistic reasons, and while some may find such an elitist attitude towards creating art ridiculous, I think it's great to experience that there are still artists out there trying to break down the boundaries of convention without the thought of anything else but creating unique sounding music.
The fourth studio album by the Norwegian band Virus is a creative and rather original production, a dark, bleak and striking piece of oppressive yet alluring and mesmerizing progressive rock. A firm taste and established fascination for themes and music of a darker nature will most likely be required to be able to get the music explored here, and those who recognize themselves in such a description are advised to give this one a spin.
Review by Warthur Prog Reviewer. The man sounds positively deranged Because the tracks are compiled from different sessions, "Oblivion Clock" is a rather varied release. While all tracks are unmistakably the sound of Virus , tracks like the upbeat "Saturday Night Virus" and the Walker Brothers cover "Shutout" are a bit different from what I usually expect from Virus and I think it suits them well to branch out and try new and different things. Other highlights to me are the title track and "Inverted Escape".
I find "Oblivion Clock" highly recommendable both to fans and to newcommers, who could do well by starting their Virus journey here. There are few albums to which I go to more than this one. In many ways- it contradicts any and all stereotypes of Norwegian metal.
Where the stereotypical Norwegian metal band will immediately bring you images of sharp and steep cliffs and fjords, daunting and freezing winters, the first thing I usually think about when I listen Virus is the desert.
