Oberon - Through Time & Space demo 1994
Oberon (nor) - Through Time & Space demo 1994
2) Through Time & Space
One non-metallic post more, this one from Norge. Oberon is somewhat similar to the Swedish Landscape posted on this blog earlier, meaning atmospheric darkwave/gothic mix of synth music with vocals though I'd say Oberon sounds more like gothic rock than Landscape and features guitars as well. Like the compared act, this is a one-man effort as well though arguably more successful as Bård Titlestad released an EP and an album under this monicker. I have not heard the full-lenght but I have the self-titled CDEP or mini-album and it is quite soft stuff, not that this would be exactly harsh, sounding more darkwave and at times even neofolk. Not bad.
My copy and this rip is from a traded tape I got long ago but as the tape condition was decent it sounds ok. The demo itself was recorded at Soundsuite studio with Terje Refnes so it obviously has a better than average demo sound. Cover scans were picked up from Discogs since I did not have them. They're better than the average M.A. images I have to use every now & then but still far from perfect. What else is there to stay... well I suppose I could recommend this if you liked the Landscape demos. And yes I'll post some metal next.
