Ne Obliviscaris Reveals New Album Cover

Visionary Australian progressive metal crew Ne Obliviscaris will release new album "Urn" on October 27th, 2017. This upcoming full-length release follows 2014's "Citadel" (reviewed here).

Season Of Mist comments: "The Australian extreme prog stars have honed and re-balanced the key elements of their unique sound to a razor sharp musical edge. Fierce growls intertwine with emotive vocals, while devastating, intricate guitar riffs and thundering drums play against an unleashed violin and gorgeous string arrangements. Ne Obliviscaris innovate the epic, progressive and intense extreme metal forms of expression once again, marking a new peak in the steep rise of the band."

"Urn" is now available for pre-order across various CD and LP formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop. Regarding the new album, frontman Tim Charles comments: "After almost three years of honing our craft in every way that we possibly could, we finally present to you the first track from an album of which we could not be more proud of. 'Urn' feels like the culmination of all our years of hard work; the delivery of everything that we have wanted to create. Music and art as our imaginations see it fit to be. 'Intra Venus' is more concise than much of our work and is in fact the only song on 'Urn' under ten minutes, but one that we feel is a great introduction to the record. We hope that you will enjoy it." More...

Sing On The New Ne Obliviscaris Album

The follow-up to 2014 opus "Citadel" (reviewed here) has been brewing for some time in the Ne Obliviscaris camp, and now the band is seeking local Australian fans to appear on the album directly. The group issued this statement about seeking fans to sing along:

"Sooooooo....... there is a section in one of the songs that will feature on the new album that has some 'group vocal' parts written and we thought, what better way to get a crowd together to sing on the record than from our Ne Obluminati family so that some of you get the chance to sing on the album!

WHERE: Melbourne, Australia
DATE: Saturday April 29 (exact time TBC - likely sometime afternoon/evening)

"You don't need to be an amazing singer, the melody is fairly simple, but you do need to be able to sing in tune. You'll be in a group of somewhere between 10-30 people so have no fear if you're not a super confident singer! More details via this location." More...

Ne Obliviscaris Posts Guitar Playthrough

Benjamin Baret, guitarist from Australian progressive metal group Ne Oblivscaris, has released a new playthrough video for the track "Pyrrhic" - check it out below. Regarding the track, Benjamin Baret comments:

"The riffs for that song are inspired by the great Göteborg scene of the late 90', with a more modern twist to it, the harmonized guitar part relies on a descending chromatic pattern which gives the main riff its flavor.

"The break is a classical music inspired moment, the chord positions are very piano-like which is something i love to do because it allows me to approach chord progressions in a fresher way, come with me off the beaten path!"

"Pyrrhic" is taken from Ne Obliviscaris' latest album, "Citadel" (reviewed here). Info on a follow-up release is expected in the not too distant future. More...

Ne Obliviscaris Comments On Firing Bassist

Australian avant-garde death metal group Ne Obliviscaris has parted ways with bass player Brendan “Cygnus” Brown, and now the group has issued this statement about the situation:

"Last week we let go our bassist Brendan Brown due to recent allegations of domestic violence. At the time we were advised by a lawyer to not release details publicly of the circumstances surrounding his dismissal, until Brendan had made a statement disclosing the details himself. Unfortunately in the time it took for the statement to come out, the real issues of domestic violence and mental health were cast aside by some to engage in a smear campaign against the band.

"Yesterday a certain website published an article claiming to have proof of a grand conspiracy by the band to cover up these allegations over the years. This is completely false and we will be taking legal action against those involved.

"Their apparent 'proof' was a Facebook comment from Brendan’s mum stating that we were aware of a domestic assault charge against Brendan from 6 years ago because Tim attended court with Brendan. It is correct that Tim attended court in moral support for Brendan back in 2010 after a domestic incident between him and his mum. However, the nature of the incident was such that although Brendan pleaded guilty to the charge, the judge decided that no conviction was warranted due to the complicated nature of the incident and their relationship in general (which is detailed in Brendan’s statement below).

"Even though this situation was very unfortunate and Brendan had clearly done the wrong thing, we also sympathized about his very difficult home life (at one point Brendan had to live with Dan and his parents when they were in their late teens due to the toxic relationship with his mum) and tried to help him through the whole process. This was the only allegation we were ever made aware of at any time until recently.

"Several people have said online that they knew of other allegations for a year, two or even more - so therefore we must have known about them ourselves. However, none of these people actually came to the band directly to tell us what they had heard.

"Once we were made aware of these allegations and investigated them ourselves we acted straight away to try and get Brendan to seek help and made the decision to remove him from the band. Moving forward the band won’t be making any further comment on Brendan’s departure. More...

Cradle of Filth Spreads Vampire Plague

Two days in February will probably become two of the most sought after days for metal concerts in central Texas. This is because European bands invaded the Lone Star state. First, on Friday the 12th, Cradle of Filth ravaged the Aztec Theater in San Antonio. Then, At The Gates thrashed Austin. Both shows brought in a large crowd, which was partially due to their popularity but also due to the fact that Euro bands like these just don’t tour much.

My show report on At The Gates will post soon, but first let’s look at COF’s performance at the Aztec. Due to horrendous traffic, it took me 3.5 hours to drive from Georgetown, Texas to San Antonio Friday traffic is terrible and on this day I encountered 4 wrecks and traffic stalls. I guess next time I’ll need to take off around noon on Friday to see all the bands. The drive is terrible. Once I made it to the venue Butcher Babies were halfway through their set. Other than boobs on parade, I don’t give much credence to this band. They sound very cliché for the times and there is nothing that really grabs me.

Cradle Of Filth Arrives In The U.S.

The start of Cradle Of Filth's tour with Ne Obliviscaris and Butcher Babies was postponed due to visa issues, but today the band finally arrives and the tour kicks off with all remaining dates to go ahead as planned. The Filth comments:

"United States. We have arrived in Charlotte! And already we have been to a super Walmart star destroyer!

"The nine hour flight over was supplemented by copious amounts of wine and current movies and the bus (once customs was finally cleared) was found to be very much to our liking. Dark green as opposed to the bright yellow of the European tour, and cozy enough. Masses of pictures to follow...

"Today we play The Filmore in Charlotte. Support comes from Wallaby rockstars Ne Obliviscaris and of course, the Butcher Babies. See you down the front!" More...

Cradle Of Filth To Resume Tour On January 31st

Cradle Of Filth's tour with Butcher Babies and Ne Obliviscaris was recently postponed due to visa problems, but now the band is officially in transit to the States, with the trek to resume on January 31st.

Ne Obliviscaris fans can still catch that band live this week though, as several headlining shows were lined up in place of the cancelled tour dates while waiting for Cradle's arrival.

Cradle Of Filth has now checked in with the following update:

"CRADLE OF FILTH ARE ON THEIR WAY TO SEE ALL THEIR US FANS!! The band will be flying out Saturday to begin the tour in Charlotte Sun 31st Jan.

"We would like once again apologize to everyone who were intending to see the band at the four cancelled shows this week in the U.S. The cancellation, ironically, was mainly down to the slow return of Dani's visa from the American Embassy in London, rather than the brutal weather. Dani has now received his visa after an agonizing wait.

"We're utterly utterly sorry for the cancellations, but it has been something that has been totally out of the band's hands. We can only hope that the rest of the tour will be as amazing as planned. Thanks once again for your understanding and see you out on the road!" More...

Ne Obliviscaris / Cradle Of Filth Tour Postponed

Update: Ne Obliviscaris has now lined up several headlining shows to replace the cancelled starting dates of the tour. Full info available here.

The impending Ne Obliviscaris / Cradle Of Filth / Butcher Babies tour will be kicking off later than expected due to (what else?) visa issues. Ne Obliviscaris had this to say about the situation:

"Unfortunately we have received news that the first 4 shows of our tour - Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore and Raleigh - have been cancelled this week due to a delay in Cradle of Filth's U.S. visas.

"We personally have already landed in LA on our way to Philadelphia tonight and are shattered that we can't play to our fans in these cities... From what we understand, it is expected that this situation will be resolved in the next couple of days so that the rest of the tour goes ahead starting in Charlotte on Jan 31.

"We are so sorry to our fans in these cities who I know will be just as disappointed as we are. We are looking into options at present for any shows in the Pennsylvania tri-state and Mid-Atlantic areas in the meantime in case it's possible to get a show happening on such extremely short notice, and will keep you guys updated as soon as there is more news on our end. Either way, we are here in America, with our Visa's in hand, staying positive and ready to play for you all." More...
