The only psalms you’ll ever hear through Fysisk Format: Obliteration’s death metal-riffing Nekropsalms.
Obliteration were spawned in Kolbotn (the hometown of Darkthrone), in 2001, and after some line-up changes, punk-style dabbling and experimentation with two bass players at the same time, it soon became clear that Death Metal was to be their future.
After releasing a demo in 2004, the young men got a great response from the Norwegian underground metal scene resulting in a vital gig at the high-profile Inferno festival in 2005, and pretty soon after, the 7” EP “Total Fucking Obliteration” was released on Duplicate Records/SoU. More gigs soon followed with bands like Aura Noir, Old and Dismember.
Obliteration recorded some rehearsal demos immediately after their Hole in the Sky festival appearance in mid-2006 (with Morbid Angel, Atheist, Celtic Frost and more) that led to their first record deal, when Nocturno Culto of Darkthrone signed them to his prestigious label Tyrant Syndicate, a sub-label of Peaceville Records, after being mightily impressed with what he was hearing.
In January 2007 the band entered Subsonic Society Studio with Lars Klokkerhaug (who has recorded/produced the likes of Enslaved, Darkthrone) to record their debut album “Perpetual Decay”, a slab of brutal metal done the way it should be.
In 2009, the well-received “Nekropsalms” came out through Fysisk Format, continuing Obliteration’s onslaught of cadaverous death metal.
