There are no reviews for Oblivion Beckons yet. You can write one.

The Morse code intro that starts off the album spells out the phrase "Absolute Horizon Brings Death" 3 times.

The guitar melody at the beginning and end of "Centurion" is the haunting melody to the classic horror movie "The Howling."

During the song "Deep End of Nothing" all four band members trade lead guitar solos since all members played guitar in previous bands before Byzantine.
Solo #1 - OJ
Solo #2 - Skip
Solo #3 - Wolfe
Solo #4 - Tony

A common theme of death and finality is used throughout the lyrics coinciding with the fulfillment of their recording contract through Prosthetic Records.

The album artwork utilizes once again the image of Tovah Miller, who was the actress in the music video for "Jeremiad" and the short performance film on the "Salvation" DVD.
