5 stars Buried in Oblivion is possibly Into Eternity best album to date, following the direction of their previous album and incorporating even more progressive elements from bands such as Opeth, Dream Theater (most obvious influence) and others. The most evident improvement has to be the vocals. Chris Krall provides incredible vocal melodies and death grunts with great quality and the switch between the two styles creates an outstanding feel to their music. Another improvement has to be their melodies. They've lost almost entirely there rhythm repetition from the other previous albums and made each song have their own distinctive sound.

Into Eternity has taken the next step with Buried in Oblivion by creating a more unique sound rather than the same dull sound that they made in their first two albums. The first noticeable song is "Beginning of the End", which creates a great sound by combining brutal heavy riffs with a melodic chorus. Other songs like "Spiraling into Depression" (which has the most DT riffs) and "Isolation" create a sound of despair and solitude something that comes from Tim Roth's losses of family and friends. "Buried in Oblivion" (title track) is a complete acoustic track similar to those in Opeth but with more melody that serves as the intro for the stand out song of the album: "Black Sea of Agony". This song has an incredible flow and follows the same rhythm of Buried in Oblivion but in a heavier manner of course. Last but not least is Morose Seclusion. Morose Seclusion has the same idea of Buried in Oblivion but in a more developed way.

In overall Buried in Oblivion is a dark, heavy, kinda melancholic experience of progressive death metal. It's better than their previous and upcoming albums.
