Ne Obliviscaris Have a New Song Called “Intra Venus”
Ex-Cynic, ex-Exivious bassist Robin Zielhorst played bass on the new Ne Obliviscaris album, replacing the recently departed Brandon Brown. How cool is that? And a perfect fit, too; Zielhorst’s creamy, smooth style is a perfect fit for Neo Oblivscaris’s super-buttery progressive metal. He won’t be a permanent or touring member, but at least we can enjoy his playing on the band’s forthcoming album.
Speaking of the band’s forthcoming album: it’ll be called Urn, it comes out October 27th, and there’s a new track streaming called “Intra Venus” which you can check out below via Metal Injection. It’s got all the trademarks of NeO’s sound — artful brutality, webs of progressive entanglement, soaring melodies, epic arrangements — and it’s got me amped to hear Urn in full.
