Review: Beheading the Goddess – Entering Oblivion

From Green Bay, Wisconsin, Beheading the Goddess released Entering Oblivion just four days before the start of 2017. In an age where some of the more well-known deathcore bands are experiencing genre fatigue, identity issues, and possibly a mid-life crisis, Entering Oblivion is a breath of fresh air.
