Band Of The Week: Ne Obliviscaris


Starting from now on, we’re going be talking about a particular band every week that we feel deserve more recognition, most of which are just unknown in this country for the most part.

This week’s artist in question are a progressive/melodic death metal band from Melbourne, Australia called Ne Obliviscaris. I first discovered this band nearly two years ago when a friend sent me a link to their song “And Plague Flowers The Kaleidoscope”. The song starts out with a very impressive violin intro, and when the full band kicks in it creates and absolutely stunning atmospheric state of euphoria, all while the vocal harmonizing between Xenoyr and Tim Charles hypnotizes you and pulls you in further as it leads into an absolutely crushing guitar solo.

The band’s complex song structures and long compositions account for much of the variation and interesting aspects of the music, as each passage feels like a musical labyrinth. “Tapestry Of The Starless Abstract” opens up their only full-length released thus far, showcasing their ability to bend genres in a very cohesive manner.

Everything comes together comfortably, as the black-metal styled rhythm guitars bleed into a short classical passage, and from then on building on the melody and desperation as the guitars become more intense and the violin becomes a melancholic force to be reckoned with.

The band released their debut full length entitled, “Portal Of I” on May 7th of 2012, I highly recommend that everyone gives it a listen, you will not be disappointed.
