Oracles’ New Track “Body of Ineptitude” Proves They’re Anything But
Oracles are a band bursting with talent. But that’s what you should expect from a group that features members of Aborted, Abigail Williams, and System Divide. If you’re at all familiar with any of those bands then you know there’s a certain level of viscosity when it comes to the styles of metal laid out in their previous works. That familiar thickness is overwhelming in Oracles, creating a heavy, blistering sound that ruptures the seams of its typical construction on their new track “Body of Ineptitude.”
The song begins with a familiar tremor of death metal tropes, skillfully divided by soaring breaks lead by Sanna Salou’s beautifully placed soprano vocals. Normally I’m not one for opera-esque choruses in such a blazing track because it tends to feel forced, but Oracles manage to blend the two so well that the styles seem to play off each other flawlessly — there’s no disparity between segments. It also doesn’t hurt to have Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy) ready and waiting with an absolutely vicious solo.
Some people might disagree, but this is one of the best melo-death tracks I’ve heard in a long time.
Oracles new album Miserycorde is out July 1st via Deadlight.
