Bit late, but congrats on the signing. Very, very cool. Very keen for tabs, but that's cool, I know how much of a bitch THAT can be.

Pretty intrigued to see where the new material goes. You've already established a nice little resevoir of genres and sounds to pull into the songs, so I'm highly interested in where that will lead now that the HUUUUGE wait for POI is over. Maybe an album ever 2 years instead of every.... I wanna say 124 years? It feels like that since I found the demo haha.

No, but seriously, should be a blast.


Thanks man.

The next album should be out mid 2014...we have deadlines now you see....

Press release from Season of Mist:
NE OBLIVISCARIS' music being studied at Sydney Conservatorium of Music"

Australian metal visionaries NE OBLIVISCARIS have seen their song, "And Plague Flowers The Kaleidoscope" included in a teaching curriculum at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, one of Australia's most prestigious classical conservatories. The song will undergo a compositional analysis by Professor Matthew Hindson, Chair of Composition at the conservatorium.

Matthew Hindson is a world renowned classical composer whose works have been performed by ensembles and orchestras throughout the world. His recent ballet music, for example, has been presented by such companies as the Birmingham Royal Ballet, the San Francisco Ballet and the National Ballet of Japan.

Professor Hindson commented on the event, saying: "I will be presenting “And Plague Flowers The Kaleidoscope” to the composition students at the conservatorium next semester as an exemplar in structure, mixing timbres, meters, modes, how to approach virtuosity, sound and noise, extended performance and techniques. The students will need to study 2 technical aspects of what NE OBLIVISCARIS have done in their music, and then use these techniques in their own classical music compositions."

The Professor continues: "It is my pleasure to introduce such high quality music making to our students, alongside other music by composers including Beethoven, Gershwin, Steve Reich and Peter Sculthorpe. Musicians deserve to hear the music of NE OBLIVISCARIS, and the music of many other metal bands, in order to appreciate the compositional complexity that lies within it, no matter what their musical tastes."

Melbourne's NE OBLIVISCARIS stand apart from their peers by infusing metal with avante-garde approaches to jazz, flamenco guitars, and progressive black metal. With adventurous, progressive, and nuanced compositions NE OBLIVISCARIS is a band with profound depth and a musical proficiency at the highest levels. With their first demo 'The Aurora Veil' in 2007, NE OBLIVISCARIS garnered significant word-of-mouth within the metal underground. In 2012, their self produced debut album, 'Portal of I' showcased their unique array of influences and dynamic songwriting, and sent shock waves through the metal underground once again. Met with even more praise, 'Portal of I' made several "Best of 2012" lists (Metal Hammer Germany (January issue), No Clean Singing, Metal Injection)

^I think it is awesome that NeO's music is being recognized at a Conservatory for the complexity and virtuoustiy of your compositional skills. Congratulations guys! You definitely deserve the recognition! Now, you need to come to the U.S.!

Massive kudos guys! I am slightly boggled that a metal band like Ne Obliviscaris is being studied at one of the most prestigious tertiary level institutes in my own country. It almost makes me want to drop my dual degree in Engineering/Science to study there (sorry, I love maths too much). I hope this trend is adopted worldwide. Personally my favourite is "As Icicles Fall" for the use of (I think) the Kumoi scale (the violin melodies/arpeggios in the second half, ~7:35) but I think they'll find plenty of compositional value in any piece that NeO has released.

Congrats once again!

Just have to say, my brother (Bluealtitudes) and I were transcribing "Of Petrichor Weaves Black Noise" today and it was loads of fun! We figured out the clean intro, we have somewhat of an idea as to what you all are doing when the distorted riffs come in, and we figured out the hammer-on riff at 4:41 as well as the tremolo picking part soon after. I still can't figure out what chords you all are using for that super awesome rhythm part that starts at like 6:21. You guys really like writing things in 6/8!

You guys really are impressive. I am glad there are still bands out there looking to do something different.

Oh my god, I finally listened to Portal of I today. Holy shitballs, this album is magnificent. I never expected violin to fit so well with this kind of metal, but it does. That moment in OPWBN with the little break with the violin and when everything kicks back in is one of the greatest things I've ever heard.

A masterpiece.

Playing with Between the Buried and Me? That's awesome! However, what is way less awesome is the fact you aren't touring in the United States...I've been listening to your material since the Aurora Veil and I waited so long for your debut album. Get your asses to the States already!

Still waiting on tabs for Forget Not as well

Will the tab book still be available after the crowdfunding project is over? Since it's just an electronic tab book I'd think it would be. If it will be then I'll get the T-shirt + poster and hold off on the tab book until it comes out.

Citadel, interesting title. I can't help but get a Cthulhu Mythos feel from the title, tentacles and colours. Is that right or am I way off the mark for this one?

Regardless, I look forward to it immensely.


Ha, nothing to do with Cthulhu…but nothing wrong with Poe.

His bass playing is absolutely phenomenal, and I love the fact that you guys actually make his playing audible instead of burying it in the mix. Your gutturals sound awesome in this song Xenoyr, and I love the layering of all the instruments in the mix. It reminds me of the "wall of sound" you guys had on The Aurora Veil. I'm definitely look forward to this release.

Now, I just need to decide if I'm going to preorder a cd, or a cd and a shirt since I already have three NeO shirts, and there is another on the way with the pozible ep!

I fukking love the design on the skull glass shirt. I do have one suggestion though. Maybe do some shirts in colors other than black? My wardrobe consists almost entirely of black, band shirts.
