Tue, Feb 12 2013: NE OBLIVISCARIS
Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of Australian progressive, extreme metal outfit NE OBLIVISCARIS! The band stand on their own by infusing their metal with western art music, jazz, and flamenco. With adventurous, progressive and nuanced compositions often exceeding ten minutes in length, NE OBLIVISCARIS add profound depth to a musical proficiency which reaches the highest levels.
The group released the following statement: “For us as a band, signing to Season of Mist, one of the best independent metal labels in the world, a label which roster includes some of our all time favourite bands and influences, is quite surreal”, the band comments. “We worked for many years to get our debut album 'Portal Of I' out there for the world to hear and for its reception to have been so overwhelmingly positive, and for a label like this to not only love our music, but believe we can go places in the worldwide metal scene is incredible. It is one of those things that just gives us even more motivation to keep composing and performing and trying to take NE OBLIVISCARIS as far as we can to as many people across the world as possible. We're currently in the middle of writing our next album with plans to record late 2013 and we can't wait to get it out there to the world and take that next step in partnership with Season of Mist.”
NE OBLIVISCARIS have toured their native Australia alongside SOILWORK, SUFFOCATION, PSYCROPTIC and more. The band has played several revered festivals like Prog Power, Bloodline, and Sonic Forge. With their first demo 'The Aurora Veil' in 2007, the Aussies garnered significant word-of-mouth within the metal underground. Last year, their self released debut album, 'Portal of I' showcased their unique array of influences and dynamic songwriting, and sent shockwaves through the metal underground once again. Met with even more praise, 'Portal of I' made several "Best of 2012" lists.
NE OBLIVISCARIS are currently in the middle of writing their Season of Mist debut with plans to record late 2013.
