Australian progressive metal visionaries NE OBLIVISCARIS are streaming another new track off their highly anticipated new album, ‘Urn’. The track titled “Urn (Part II) – As Embers Dance In Our Eyes” exudes power, grace, and confidence from these progressive metal visionaries. “Urn (Part II) – As Embers Dance In Our Eyes” is streaming online now at the Season of Mist YouTube channel.
Regarding the track, NE OBLIVISCARIS frontman Tim Charles comments: “With just over two weeks left until our new album is officially released, we present to you one last taste… ‘Urn (Part II – As Embers Dance In Our Eyes’; the epic conclusion to the previously released ‘Urn (Part I) – And Within the Void We Are Breathless’, which taken together form the title-track.”
The band’s highly anticipated album will be released worldwide on October 27. ‘Urn’ is bound to be a career defining moment for the band. The Australian extreme prog stars have honed and re-balanced the key elements of their unique sound to a razor sharp musical edge. Fierce growls intertwine with emotive vocals, while devastating, intricate guitar riffs and thundering drums play against an unleashed violin and gorgeous string arrangements. NE OBLIVICARIS innovate the epic, progressive and intense extreme metal forms of expression once again, marking a new peak in the steep rise of the band.
‘Urn’ is now available for pre-order across various CD and LP formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.
