SWEET OBLIVION feat. Geoff Tate: debut album ‘Sweet Oblivion’ out 14 June on Frontiers

Frontiers Music is pleased to announce the debut release by Sweet Oblivion, an exciting new project featuring legendary former Queensryche and current Operation: Mindcrime singer Geoff Tate.

 

Sweet Oblivion sees Tate teaming up with a stellar cast of Italian musicians led by Simone Mularoni,

the mastermind of prog metal masters DGM. Musically, this album marks a return to a more melodic

metal style for Tate and showcases a fine collection of songs that also highlights the talent of Mularoni

and his hand-picked ensemble.

“I was approached by Frontiers to do this record and am pleased I took the chance,” says Tate. “It’s  an album filled with fun and I believe a lot of the fans who dig the old Queensryche sound will enjoy this!”

Adds Mularoni: “I grew up listening to 70’s and 80’s rock and metal bands and, of course, Queensryche’s

classic albums are among my favourites ever. Having the opportunity and luck of working together with

a musical giant like Geoff has been a real blessing on both the human and the artistic side. I asked a few

amazing musicians and friends to help me out and together we delivered a bunch of classic heavy rock

songs in which I tried to fuse a more contemporary approach with a classic Queensryche vibe….the

performances are amazing!”

The opening track and first single ‘True Colors’ sets the pace for the entire release and shows what

listeners can expect from the record. Excellent musicianship and a sound that harkens back to the

massive melodies and hooks of classic albums like ‘Empire’, ‘Rage For Order’ and ‘Operation:

Mindcrime’. Enjoy!
