Futant Oblivion - Law Of Decay Review

by Matt Hensch

Creativity. Such a word can mean so many things. Creativity can mean something somewhat abstract for some, or really abstract for others. Creativity can spread across the boarders of nations and touch the hearts of those who appreciate it. If you're getting confused, I'm basically trying to say a little creativity can go a long way, and for Jim Nall's solo project Futant Oblivion, this is exceptionally true. Jim (aka Kane) has created a bizarre, yet somewhat relaxing album focused around creative ideas. "Law Of Decay" isn't just Futant Oblivion's first album, it shows us what Futant Oblivion is all about. For those of us who enjoy the REALLY abstract things in life, there is a nice little album out there called "Law Of Deacy."

Kane's musical formation is something totally unexpected. The entire album sounds quite similar to something Pink Floyd would pay if they took a s*** load of acid. The drumming sounds like basic drumming, but I believe they are altered with samples. The snare on tracks like "Etheria" and some others sounds a bit different from a basic snare sound. The guitar work on "Law Of Decay" is nothing short of interesting. The guitars change between the sound of a groove thrash riff and a stoner rock vibe throughout the course of the album. The use of these two guitar elements help make "Law Of Decay" an amusing listen. The keyboards on "Law Of Decay" add an exotic element to the music. The keyboards usually sound a bit atmospheric at times and make the music seem more drony. The only bad part of the keyboard use I could point is the somewhat annoying notes on "Siege Of Senses." The keyboards are really loud and high pitched, and they distract some of the music on that track.

Overall, this album is great. It's creative, smart, and most importantly, different! If you enjoy the weird things in life, you should give "Law Of Decay" a shot.
