4 stars Oracles is the debut full-length studio album by Italian death metal act Fleshgod Apocalypse. The album was released in March 2009 by Willowtip Records.

The music on Oracles is brutal death metal but there´s a twist. While most really brutal death metal acts first and foremost focus on brutality and in the process have a tendency to sound rather one-dimensional over the course of a full album, Fleshgod Apocalypse incorporate neo-classical shredding and arrangements and some rather impressive technical playing to their music, which I find is great for the diversity and sound of Oracles. This is actually a really brutal death metal album that I can sit through and feel entertained by most of the time. It does become a bit too monotone a couple of times during the playing time, but mostly I´m salivating over one powerful technical part and intriguing neo-classical shred after another. The vocals are brutal deep growls and personally I could have wished for a bit more variation, but the vocals get the job done and they are not terrible by any means.

Oracles is a rather unique brutal death metal album and a great start to Fleshgod Apocalypse career. They prove on this album that they are ready to take that extra step to create some unique sounding music without sacrificing brutality. Very interesting debut and a 3.5 - 4 star rating is deserved.
