Oberon biography
OBERON is a band from Padua (Italy), born in autumn 2015. The project started under the pretext of creating music without any limit, influenced by Symphonic and Classical Prog, Sixties Psychedelia, Medieval Folk, Stoner Rock and Jazz Rock (artists like Kansas, ELP, Black Sabbath, Scope, Gryphon, Pink Floyd, Soft Machine, Gentle Giant, King Crimson, Jimi Hendrix, ecc).

OBERON recorded their first album The Mountain of Fate in 2016.

The concept is based on the most famous greek myths, re-evaluated in a modern way: every feeling and every meaning from these stories revolves around the Mount Olympus, a symbol of extreme negativity (if it regarded as an obstacle) or great positivity (like a sort of liberation from all evil, once reached the top). It's a journey of meditation through issues such as greed, the search of the impossible, freedom, narcissism, hate, war, Spleen and many more induced by the nowadays society. Self produced, the band have chosen a dark old school mix to give a seventies touch to the songs.

The second album ''The Sleep Produces Monsters'', inspired by the underground progressive rock bands of the seventies with a heavy sound, was released on April 29th, 2018.

The concept of this album is the mental instability of the human being, governed by his fears, in conflict with himself, troubled by anxieties and visions arising from his mind.

4 stars "Visions for people who still want to dream, and listen..."

That quote is from their web page. Oberon is the performance duo of Yuri Crescenzio and Alberto Baretta of Padua, Italy, two young guys with big creative dreams. You can hear it through and through on this delightful debut album, a conceptual work rooted in Greek mythology but seeking to comment on modern dysfunctions as well. The guys are lovers of many classic bands and have sought to create a retro-sound work that provides new adventures for other fans of those days. Prog snobs, bless their hearts, may look down their noses at bands they call "derivative" but I could care less whether a band is seeking to be "progressive." I'm a music fan first.

I was cracking a smile almost from the git-go over what was coming at me. I love it when I hear this kind of pure musical excitement from a band. They are all-over-the-map in the best way, drawing from sounds as divergent as medieval folk, stoner psych-rock, and dark symphonic. I hear bits of Jacula, Spiral, Akron, Hero, Spettri, Fiaba, as well as many vintage RPI bands who would incorporate heavy with acoustic. The production is somewhat primitive sounding but as I mentioned they were going for a 70s underground vibe here I believe, so it works just fine. No gloss is needed for this kind of adventure.

Between the hard rock sections of doomy, at times Sabbath-ey sounding drums and guitar, there are these wonderful breaks where you just drift away to acoustic guitar interludes. The other secret weapon are the spirited vocals of Elena Dainese, bringing some female energy for a nice variation of the sound palette. Her only mistake is singing in English -- it really should be some kind of international artistic crime whenever Italian bands use English. To possess the world's most beautiful language but not use it. Tragic. Nevertheless, the album succeeds anyway. My favorite element here is the fantastic, trippy keyboard parts, providing such rich atmosphere and taking the sound well beyond hard rock. The tracks can be mysterious and classically tinged one moment and driving riffage the next, then off into a dreamy break. The last track is a 9-minute, 4-part suite which will please any fan of heavy keyboard embellished art-rock.

While there is always room for improvement I have to say I was truly charmed by Oberon. These days, I find I appreciate these kinds of passionate homemade projects over the sprawling and stuffy 80 minute, super refined, over-produced monsters. Instead of it being a chore to get through, this album is a joy. In the HamelinProg blog Yuri speaks about his pride in the finished work, where two young men punched through their dream without allowing the inevitable obstacles stand in their way. I can hear their heart beating throughout this work.

I wish them the best on their next album coming in 2017. Kudos to Salus Art for the enchanting album cover.

Thanks to kev rowland for the artist addition.
