Oberon was founded in 1994 as an outlet for the creative vision of Norwegian artist/songwriter Bard Oberon. September that year saw the release of the demo "Through Time and Space", which received glowing reviews from the international underground scene. The demo led to a deal with the Argentina-based label, Regress Records. A self-titled CD was released in 1996. As with his previous release, “Oberon” was met with a very positive response from fans and underground media alike. Organ Magazine (UK) called the album “Progressive dark otherworldness - orchestral, romantic, extremely powerful, painful, dark, lost and recommended”. Soon it reached the ears of Prophecy Productions who offered to reissue it for the European market.
