Check Out Ne Obliviscaris’ New Live Video of “And Plague Flowers the Kaleidoscope”


Australian progressive metal band Ne Obliviscaris shared what a hometown show for them looks like with the release of their “And Plague Flowers the Kaleidoscope” music video yesterday. Recorded in the beforetimes back in 2019, the video is part of the band’s upcoming blu-ray release Live in Melbourne that will be exclusively available as part of the special collector’s edition of their upcoming full-length album Exul.

With the special edition limited to just 2,000 copies, the band urges anyone interested in seeing one of their shows without having to brave the elements or deal with the unwashed masses to pick one up for themselves. Especially since the band says the video footage and sound quality found in the final product is “almost completely unedited,” making it as close to the real thing as possible while still making it enjoyable to watch through your home theater.

“This live performance video features audio that is almost completely unedited. It’s brilliantly imperfect. A genuine and an authentic representation of what our shows are like. This concert Blu-Ray is a great example of how deeply we care about our music and the connection between ourselves and the audience. It’s six people that have worked for years (decades even) at their craft coming together to bring our music to life for audiences across the world and we are so excited to get back to doing that in 2023. We hope you enjoy this taste of NeO’s Live in Melbourne Blu-Ray. See you all on the Exul world tour (EU/UK this May and USA/CAN Oct/Nov + more TBA) for our own moment to share together!”

Exul will be available on March 24, via Seasons of Mist. That being said, you can always preorder yourself a copy or presave the album on your favorite streaming platform today.
