Eye of the Mind
Jovian Oblivion is a music project created by solo artist Brent Matney, from southwestern Virginia. Brent is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, bass and keyboard. The music of Jovian Oblivion draws influences from many different genres and sub-genres of popular and classical music such as: Blues, Classic Rock, 80's New Wave, 90's Grunge, 80's Alternative, Progressive Rock, Kraut Rock, Chorale, New Age, Industrial, Heavy Metal and Punk Rock. In this decade, most modern rock bands create the same song over and over again. Jovian Oblivion strives to create albums full of different, unique songs that don't resemble one another in format and/or style. Jovian Oblivion seeks to challenge the listener, instead of placating listeners with the same old usual tripe, that's always on MTV and modern rock radio. There are no boundaries or rules in Jovian Oblivion's music.... it doesn't follow any set pattern or conform to the trendy sounds of the current or past status quo in rock music. Jovian Oblivion doesn't care about industry standards, current trends or the 'flavor of the month.' Jovian Oblivion is not shackled by the contraints, limitations and pressures of any corporate, money-hungry entity. The music is pure and free, while every song has a personality all it's own. 'Eye of the Mind' is the first of what will be many albums from Jovian Oblivion. This album established the basic sound, philosophy and style that will be expanded on, modified and experimented with on future Jovian Oblivion albums. Production has commenced on the third Jovian Oblivion album, 'Apocalyptic Blues,' which has a projected release time in late 2008/early 2009. Jovian Oblivion's second album,'Frontier of Darkness' is now available for purchase here at CDbaby.
