Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of Australian progressive extreme metal outfit NE OBLIVISCARIS.
Melbourne’s NE OBLIVISCARIS stand on their own by infusing their metal with western art music, jazz, and flamenco. With adventurous, progressive and nuanced compositions often exceeding ten minutes in length, NE OBLIVISCARIS is a band with profound depth and a musical proficiency at the highest levels.
With their first demo ‘The Aurora Veil’ in 2007, NE OBLIVISCARIS garnered significant word-of-mouth within the metal underground. In 2012, their self released debut album, ‘Portal of I’ showcased their unique array of influences and dynamic songwriting, and sent shock waves through the metal underground once again. Met with even more praise, ‘Portal of I’ made numerous “Best of 2012” lists.
‘Portal of I‘ can be previewed via the NE OBLIVISCARIS BandCamp page.
Regarding the signing, the band released the following statement: “For us as a band, signing to Season of Mist, one of the best independent metal labels in the world, a label that’s roster includes some of our all time favorite bands and influences, is quite surreal. We worked for many years to get our debut album ‘Portal Of I’ out there for the world to hear and for it’s reception to have been so overwhelmingly positive, and for a label like this to not only love our music, but believe we can go places in the worldwide metal scene is incredible. It is one of those things that just gives us even more motivation to keep composing and performing and trying to take NE OBLIVISCARIS as far as we can to as many people across the world as possible.”
NE OBLIVISCARIS have toured their native Australia alongside SOILWORK, SUFFOCATION, PSYCROPTIC and more. The band has played several revered festivals like Prog Power, Bloodline and Sonic Forge.
The band is currently in the middle of writing their Season of Mist debut with plans to record late 2013.
NE OBLIVISCARIS is Benjamin Baret – Lead Guitar, Matt Klavins – Guitar, Brendan “Cygnus” Brown – Bass, Dan Prestland – Drums, Tim Charles -Violin and Vocals, Xenoyr – Vocals.
