Ne Obliviscaris Release New Album ‘Citadel’

Australian metal visionaries Ne Obliviscaris have released their highly anticipated new album ‘Citadel’ in North America. The new album, which has been called “a game changer” (Sputnik Music), and “complex, mind-bending metal” (Decibel Magazine) is streaming now, and is available on CD and Ltd. LP. Ne Obliviscaris have recently announced a headlining album release tour in Australia. The tour sees the band play alongside label mates Beyond Creation, and travels through six cities throughout Australia.

Ne Obliviscaris will also be a part of the 2015 edition of Australia’s Soundwave Festival. Soundwave, Australia’s premier multi-genre, multi-city traveling festival, begins in February 2015 and sees NE Obliviscaris play alongside Faith No More, Soundgarden, Lamb of God and more. Past editions of Soundwave have been headlined by the likes of Metallica, Slayer, Linkin Park, Anthrax.

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).
