Halls of Oblivion is a melodic death/black metal band from the sleepy town Vaihingen/Enz in Southern Germany.

On June 13, 2015 the band played their first show (Rock am Cock, Aalen) and released their first EP, The Blind Legion. The initially intended death/doom metal style meanwhile had turned into a more aggressive melodic death metal style, even though melancholic guitar melodies and atmospheric parts are still occupying centre stage.
