Australian prog metal maestros, Ne Obliviscaris, have announced their newest album ‘Urn’ to be released on October 27. To tease the upcoming album, the band released a music video for the song ‘Intra Venus’, which has all of the marks of a NeO song; tasteful brutality, pieces of progressive metal sounds, amazing melodies, and epic solos. All of these things make me incredibly excited to hear the full album when it gets released.
This is the first album to feature their new bassist, Robin Zielhorst, formerly of Cynic and Exivious. Zielhorst has replaced bassist Brandon Brown, who departed the band after allegations of domestic violence. Zielhorst won’t be a permanent member or a touring member, but it will be exciting to hear him on the upcoming album and hear how his style will fit in with that of Ne Obliviscaris. But if ‘Inter Venus’ is any indication, I have a good feeling.
