Oracle is now a three piece extreme metal band from Alabama featuring Jason Long-gtr&vox, Trey Ozinga-gtr, Ray Ozinga-bass, and BG Watson-drums(2016-2017).
In a world where metal has taken many avenues and alleys into sub genres, Oracle, formed in 2016 by Father and son duo Trey and Ray Ozinga of Baldwin County Alabama along with, Jason Long of Mobile county Alabama to create something truly unique that encapsulates many of these genres. The result is an extreme metal band with emphasis on musicality, grooves and epic passages that sonically attack and satisfy all senses of metal enthusiast all around. Since our first album Beyond Omega, released in the early summer of 2016, we have played many shows along the gulf coast. 2017’s release of Into The Unknown and 2018’s release of Seven Deadly Sins has seen the same support and we have sold many albums world wide. 2020 will yield the next endeavor for Oracle with more shows and the release of Hindsight is 20/20 which will be the most matured and detail oriented albums to date. The journey is long but, we’re strong!
Oracle extreme metal
What makes Oracle a wonderful metal band is their grooves added to the classic death metal sound that gives their music a smooth flow. Having formed in 2016 Oracle is a father/son team of Trey Ozinga (drums) and Ray Ozinga ( bass) and are completed by Jason Long on vocals and guitar . Upon my first listen to their new single "Hindsight is 2020", I was wonderfully pleased by their cohesive musicianship. So, of course, I delved deeper into their discography and spent a day riding along to Forgotten Songs From Camp Yeti (2019),Seven Deadly Sins (2018),Into the Unknown (2017) and Beyond Omega (2016). There are so many elements to enjoy on these albums and if you have a very discerning ear, you can even pick out influences and flavors of other genres through the course of their work. You will hear some black metal riffing injected into many of their tracks.
