Hailing from Oslo, Norway, Oberst emerges as a compelling force in the metal scene. The dynamic quartet was bound by a shared passion for music rather than a specific genre, and their sound evolved finding common ground with bands like Mastodon, Baroness, Converge, and Cult of Luna. However, the band's unique imprint extends beyond these influences, drawing from individual members' diverse musical backgrounds, spanning classic rock and jazz to modern pop.

The release of their self-titled debut EP in 2015 was met with critical acclaim and praised as «some of the best metal produced in Norway for a long time» -HISSIG. The singles from the 4-track EP got played and recommended on national radio and featured on the acclaimed Norwegian TV series «Unge Lovende».

After the release of their EP, Oberst signed with Indie Recordings, and released the debut album “Paradise” in 2020.

“This opus is a promising start for Oberst”...” showcases their raw, unbridled talent impressively enough.” - Kerrang! Magazine “OBERST have done wonderfully in placing themselves firmly on the list of bands to watch out for” - Distorted Sound Magazine Oberst now sets the stage for their upcoming album, "Toil," set to release April 26th 2024. The album is a culmination of three years of dedicated effort, and it promises to deliver a fresh and exciting sound that transcends the boundaries of traditional rock and metal.

About the upcoming album the band states: "Making this album, we raged and delved into the sorry state of the human condition, as seen from within and as an observer. This album is our opus to the very toil of living. The album may not have been catharsis for us, but we hope it can be of some solace and enjoyment to those inclined."
