Fit For a King – “Oblivion”

New Song from the album Dark Skies

September 14, 2018 via Solid State Records

By Ariana Leo

Pure, raw emotion pours out of Ryan Kirby’s vocals in the newest release from Fit For a King, “Oblivion.” There’s a desperation of sorts that can be heard in Kirby’s screaming during the verses, while the choruses are clean; still, though, they have a gritty, aggressive quality to them, rather than sounding overproduced. Drummer Jared Easterling also gets his chance to shine on this track, adding in impressive fills and riffs that give the song a whole new dimension. While it is a tad disappointing that the first and second verses are identical, the song never loses its momentum. Perhaps the most chilling part of “Oblivion” comes during the bridge, which is not screamed, not sung, but spoken, an acknowledgment and confession of the main character’s wrongdoings, and a prayer for help to do better going forward. All in all, “Oblivion” is a song that will resonate emotionally with listeners, not to mention musically—the refrain, “Tell me I won’t be forgotten, if just for a moment,” is pretty darn catchy, and a standout line both thematically and vocally.
