NE OBLIVISCARIS Announce New Album & Stream New Track:
Australian progressive metal visionaries NE OBLIVISCARIS will release their new album 'Urn' on October 27. The highly anticipated album 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.
NE OBLIVISCARIS have premiered "Intra Venus", the first new track off their forthcoming album. The video for "Intra Venus" is online now at the Season of Mist YouTube channel.
Regarding the new album, NE OBLIVISCARIS frontman Tim Charles: "After almost three years of honing our craft in every way that we possibly could, we finally present to you the first track from an album of which we could not be more proud of. 'Urn' feels like the culmination of all our years of hard work; the delivery of everything that we have wanted to create. Music and art as our imaginations see it fit to be. 'Intra Venus' is more concise than much of our work and is in fact the only song on 'Urn' under ten minutes, but one that we feel is a great introduction to the record. We hope that you will enjoy it."

Paradise Lost Reveal New Album Details
At this moment, iconic UK metallers, PARADISE LOST, are putting the final touches to their upcoming album, recorded at Orgone Studios in the misty countryside of Woburn, England. Together with producer Jaime Gomez Arellano, they have forged the follow-up to their highly acclaimed release The Plague Within (2015), which brought them a step closer to their death metal roots. This time, PARADISE LOST will haunt their fans with a heavy, doom-ridden monster, as lead guitarist and songwriter Greg Mackintosh reveals:
“The new album will be slower, sludgier and more doom filled than ever before. Eight riff laden monster tracks of sheer Northern misery.”
This 15th studio album will see the light of day at the end of summer via Nuclear Blast and is entitled Medusa. As some might know, Medusa is considered a hideous Gorgon in Greek mythology - a winged female monster with living venomous snakes in place of hair and everyone who dares taking a look at her will immediately turn to stone! So watch out for new details about the album being revealed soon - if you dare.
PARADISE LOST are:
Nick Holmes | vocals
Greg Mackintosh | lead guitars
Aaron Aedy | rhythm guitars
Steve Edmondson | bass
Waltteri Väyrynen | drums
