Ne Obliviscaris Posts "Pyrrhic" 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.

"Let's see how weird of a shape I can put my hand in and still play something musical!" No wonder he needs a wrist brace.

LOL! That said, it's pretty dang good. Nice work!

It's like a large spider was stalking the fretboard. Pretty impressive. These guys are amazing.
(Plus, the left handed guitarists are just cool to watch.)

I've never understood the concept of lefty playing. I'm left handed, I write and throw lefty. But, I play right handed guitar, which makes sense to me, because my dominate hand is on fretboard. I don't know why a lot of left handers feel comfortable picking with their left hand. I'm by no means knocking lefty players. If you're motivated and enjoy playing, it doesn't matter how you play. I'm just saying how I do it, being left handed. I'll never be as skilled as this dude, though. Sick video.

To some degree, it may comes down to the habits developed when they first showed an interest in guitar.

I'm a left handed drummer but my drumkit is set up like a right handed person except for my ride cymbal is on my left. From the time I first started air-drumming, I developed the habit of keeping time with my left hand on the hi-hat/ride cymbals. Had I to do it all over again, I probably would have conformed to a traditional right handed lead so I could be more ambidextrous.

As far as guitar goes, it probably comes down to how they started. Those early habits are hard to change.

Plus, don't knock the attraction to being different and non-conformist.

Want a new Ne Obliviscaris album so bad, but at the same time dreading it because it won't possibly be as good as "Citadel."
