Ne Obliviscaris – Exul

Australian extreme progressive metal band Ne Obliviscaris has always garnered attention for the trademark blend of classical beauty and masterful intricate composition that now leads to the monumental fourth full-length “Exul”.
Throughout “Equus” you will find harsh rhythmic patterns enhanced by brutal growls and unexpected tempo variations showcasing a strong prog metal approach and musical prowess while the classical splendor of the haunting violin movements can express an emotional whirlwind.
“Misericorde I – As the Flesh Falls” demands your attention with a shapeshifting rhythmic core as the band meticulously combines fierce guitar riffs and enthralling violin harmonies once again highlighting the duality of Charles’ soothing clean vocals and Xenoyr’s ravenous growls.
On “Misericorde II – Anatomy of Quiescence” the flawless violin takes the center stage delivering a gorgeous wistful melodic flow enriched by the luminous guitar solo yet the colossal rhythmic section is ready to impress with faster aggressive dynamics.
Throughout “Suspyre” the captivating melodic essence of the impeccable violin is always bound to emerge even if the fury of the rhythmic ensemble and the eclectic prog guitar style here hold a dominant role generating intense grooves.
Evidently “Exul” manifests and a high degree of diversity maintaining a rather dark mood as Ne Obliviscaris challenge the audience skillfully combining multifaceted melodic tapestries and an insane proggy rhythmic structure.
