Ne Obliviscaris' Dan Presland Posts Playthrough Video Clip For "Intra Venus"

Dan Presland, the drummer for the Australian progressive metal visionaries Ne Obliviscaris is streaming a new play-through video for the track "Intra Venus." The video is streaming now, at Sick Drummer over here, or just in the player below.

"Intra Venus" appears on the forthcoming new album "Urn," the band's highly anticipated new album which will be released worldwide on October 27th. "Urn" is bound to be a career defining moment for the band. 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 innovates 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. The track listing is:

1. Libera (Part I) – Saturnine Spheres
2. Libera (Part II) – Ascent of Burning Moths
3. Intra Venus
4. Eyrie
5. Urn (Part I) – And Within The Void We Are Breathless (song streaming here)
6. Urn (Part II) – As Embers Dance In Our Eyes

7 minutes of win!

1:48 - 2.42 The awesome switching between right and left hand lead with a subtle snare roll between

3:16 - 3:20 the blasts over the toms - tasty!

3:48 - 4:16 That groove with the double bass strokes snuck underneath.

4:17 - 4:41 Evolving the groove with toms (even though he plays it differently here than on the record, both are awesome)

7:00 those two perfectly fluid and complementary fills.

Excuse me while I pick my jaw off the floor.

I too was pretty impressed with the playing. Not so much with the sound of the drums. They sound hollow and weak to me. I had to double check that the actual album track didn't sound better. But no, sadly, it is the same track.

To my ears it sounds like poor microphone placement but I would expect more of these guys. It's probably just a drummer being a drummer. LOL. Gotta have that "signature" sound. I, for one, do not like it. Haha.
