Obol is dark progressive rock, encompassing a wide array of pop and mainstream influences including Muse, Placebo, Devin Townsend, Marillion, Leprous, and A Perfect Circle. The songs are dreamlike enough to create “visual images for the listener,” but otherwise sound deceptively simple, accessible, and full of memorable hooks.
Vocals/Bass/Keys: Barry Craig, Guitars: Jun Mantrano, Drums: Rob Sones
"Halfway through the album, I felt as if I was listening to the soundtrack to a new Alien movie, but directed by Hitchcock... Dreaming opens our eyes and ears to another reality… a reality where hope is the hero and dreams are the super power. This is a must listen album.” — Raymond Hayden, Seattle Wave Radio
