Ne Obliviscaris221201

In the dark, expansive universe of progressive extreme metal, a luminous event horizon approaches. Ne Obliviscaris, Australia’s emissaries of the genre, have declared a pilgrimage that transcends mere terrestrial bounds. Venturing forth with the most grandiose of announcements, they invite you to immerse in a celestial alignment of their monumental works: EXUL and CITADEL. This tour not only celebrates these two classic releases in their triumphant discography but marks a saga of perseverance and audacity that defines Ne Obliviscaris‘s journey through the cosmos of metal.

Here in 2024 we have much to celebrate as a band. Last year saw the release of our most successful album to date, EXUL, and with it a return to the road that saw us performing to ever increasing crowds wherever we went. So many new people have discovered our music through EXUL and we are so incredibly proud of what we created with this album.

2024 however also marks the 10th anniversary of our second album, CITADEL, the record that launched us into the international scene back in 2014. Citadel took us from our little corner of the world in Australia to stages across the world for the first time.

Order ‘Exul’ here:

Drum tracking for Exul, the fourth long-player from Australian extreme progressive metallers Ne Obliviscaris, started in March 2020. There is an ominous tone to that date: March 2020. The pandemic demarcation line. That month, Daniel Presland laid down his drums in Nashville, Tennessee, with American producer Mark Lewis. As flight cancellations increased and borders shuttered, Presland made it home literally hours before Australia closed theirs. Lewis, guitarist Benjamin Baret and bassist Martino Garattoni weren’t as lucky. They were due to land in Australia in the days that followed to continue tracking, but were forced to remain overeseas indefinitely. With recording studios shuttered throughout Melbourne, a slow, tedious, life-altering two-year grind to complete Exul ensued for Ne Obliviscaris.

Seven additional studios and three more countries later, Exul was finally mixed and mastered in July 2022.

The album personifies Ne Obliviscaris’s distinctive, boundary-pushing ethos. The band’s trademark blend of emotion and beauty is as towering as ever, if not even more compelling, particularly how Charles’s violin lines carefully weave their way around Baret and fellow guitarist Matt Klavins’ riffing. The duality of Charles’s clean vocals and Xenoyr’s growls remains the narrative anchor, elevating songs that emanate sophistication and are a masterclass in composition.

Touring will factor heavily into Ne Obliviscaris’s 2023 plans. The band will embark on headlining tours worldwide that will hit new territories. As luck would have it, the return to live show activity will coincide with the release of Exul and the band’s 20th anniversary. As one of Australia’s leading extreme metal exports, there is a distinct sense of gratitude from Charles and his bandmates. They’re looking forward to sharing it with fans when they resume touring.

Xenoyr – Harsh Vocals
Tim Charles – Violin & Clean Vocals
Benjamin Baret – Lead Guitar
Matt Klavins – Guitar
Martino Garattoni – Bass
