Black Metal




We don’t often get to welcome Aussie bands at our festival and when we do, they’re usually hard rock bands, or black metal or thrash bands from the Australian outback. Ne Obliviscaris – Latin for “don’t forget” - is a six-piece progressive metal band whose remarkable debut ‘Portal of I’ features a well-crafted mix of black, death, heavy and doom metal influences as well as classical elements and a proggy touch. Their progressive metal also struck a chord in more academic music circles since one of their songs has been incorporated in the curriculum of the prestigious Sydney Conservatorium of Music! Their sophomore album ‘Citadel’ raised the bar even further. The band’s musical prowess leaves the listener breathless without ever losing sight of the bigger picture. Slightly easier to digest, ‘Urn’ (201) is probably a good place to start if you’re new to Ne Obliviscaris. Their 2015 GMM debut was one of the weekend’s surprises so be sure to give them a try!
