NE OBLIVISCARIS BRING MOZART-INSPIRED METAL FROM DOWNUNDER
I’m really digging this Australian band Ne Obliviscaris today. They combine Pacific Northwest-style black metal with what I can best describe as classical (not classic) metal. If you don’t immediately know what I mean by classical metal then this music probably isn’t for you, but if you’re a music nerd like I am and you enjoy complex arrangements and orchestrations that evoke the work of some of the best composers Classical period composers to grace the earth, I highly recommend you give Ne Obliviscaris a shot. I especially like the bass and violin work in the second half of the 12-minute long epic “Tapestry;” that section really reminds me of the excellent NYC band Hung…. and if you don’t know about those guys you’re doing yourself a severe disservice.
