'Oblivion to you all' is the sixth release from dark ambient project, Noctilucant, and the proper continuation of the story started on, 'Back to the Mud.'

"In his sixth release Oblivion To You All (OTYA), Noctilucant crafts an arresting post-apocalyptic tale. He explores a civilization lost to nuclear fallout and traverses its stygian streets." - From Corners Unknown
"I found myself instantly attracted to the concept of dark ambient album Oblivion To You All. Anything that is dark and atmospheric, with a dose of wandering menace is something that will have my ears prickling in anticipation." - Casey Douglas
"This album is wonderfully cinematic, more so than any album I’ve heard, it feels almost like an audiobook, but the listener fills in the story based on the sounds. I highly recommend this album, listen to it carefully, without any interference; every detail is important." - Resounding Footsteps
"Oblivion To You All is a very well produced album and the level of skill this talented artist is noted" - Brutal Resonance
"This is very much a dark ambient album but there are elements that you would usually expect to hear in other genres of dark music. Many ambient works maintain a steady dynamic level throughout with little (if any) change in atmosphere and mood. This is not one of those albums. Prepare to be compelled on a physical, emotional and spiritual level with the ever changing emanations and undertones." - Terra Relicta
"With this album it has an early CMI feel with bands like Aghast , Sephiroth and Raison D'Etre in it's vision and over all presentation. There is a pain that you get in the pit of your chest when you know there is no happiness or joy left and the sounds that come from this album are just that."
