Melbourne‘s NE OBLIVISCARIS stand on their own by infusing their metal with western art music, jazz, and flamenco. With adventurous, progressive, and nuanced compositions often exceeding ten minutes in length, 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, No Clean Singing, Metal Injection)

Regarding the signing, the band released the following statement:
“For us as a band, signing to Season of Mist, one of the best independent metal labels in the world, a label that’s roster includes some of our all time favorite bands and influences, is quite surreal. We worked for many years to get our debut album Portal Of I out there for the world to hear and for it’s reception to have been so overwhelmingly positive, and for a label like this to not only love our music, but believe we can go places in the worldwide metal scene is incredible. It is one of those things that just gives us even more motivation to keep composing and performing and trying to take NE OBLIVISCARIS as far as we can to as many people across the world as possible.”
NE OBLIVISCARIS toured their native Australia with SOILWORK, SUFFOCATION, PSYCROPTIC, and more. The band also played several revered festivals like Prog Power, Bloodline, and Sonic Forge.
They are currently in the middle of writing their Season of Mist debut with plans to record late 2013.
“Epic. Masterpiece. Mind-blowing. Superlative, superlative, superlative. It’s hard to hide my excitement here; Portal Of I, down to its final note, is the perfect metal album” – Metal Injection
“Portal of I is a full-spectrum metal experience well worth the time and effort required. It combines the best of many different styles into one fluid musical journey that’s equal parts breathtaking prog and extreme blackened death metal” – Metal Underground
