Interviews About Albums: Oxblood Forge - Cult Of Oblivion (2023)

In this new interview, we sat down with the American Thrash Metal/Heavy Metal/Doom Metal/Speed Metal band Oxblood Forge to ask some questions about their new album "Cult Of Oblivion"

1. What can you say about this new EP/?

Ken: For the new EP we found ourselves coming up with heavier and darker-themed songs. We have some other newer songs that are still with the vibe of the last album but these just happen to be the four we went with. Also, the recording style lends a darker vibe with a raw live-like recording. 

2. What is the meaning of the EP name?

The EP is named after the title track “Cult Of Oblivion”. A song about a certain political charlatan we all know so well. But also written in a way that could pertain to any con artist or cult leader over the history of time.

3. Which one is the composer of the EP?

We all write the songs together. Usually, Robb brings the main idea of the song for us to start with at rehearsal. The song “Upon The Altar” was originally Erik’s kernel of a song to start with. I wrote all the vocal parts and lyrics. But we are a band and all take credit for the songwriting. They’ll become an Oxblood Forge song eventually.

4. If you had to pick one song, which one would you pick?

“Mask Of Satan” would be my pick. A song based on the Mario Bava classic horror movie “Black Sunday (Mask Of Satan)”. Seems to be going over really well in a live setting too.

5. Is there a special message in this EP? If there is what it is?

If there is one I guess it would be that evil resides everywhere in this world and comes at us in all different forms. And we have the power to overcome that evil. 

6. Are there some lyrics that you'd love to share?

“Revelry of the arrogant Mob of fools anoint their king Cult of oblivion Throngs programmed, they’ll receive”

7. Which inspirations have been important for this album?

Inspirations for me for the new EP came from horror movies, the current state of the USA, and old-school heavy metal. Bands like Mercyful Fate and Venom. Would like to thank my bandmates for being such professional and creative dudes! Would like to thank other bands that we share the stage with that have been supportive of us. Our friends Mourn The Light, Conclave, and Dust Prophet. Like musically or friends, family, someone you'd love to thank especially?

8. Something to add?

Thanks for taking the time to interview and checking out the band. Thanks to anyone who has ever supported the band and thanks to James Gazerro at the Red Room and Brad Boatright for a great sounding record. Pre-orders (and title track stream) are available at
