Australia’s  foremost Kings  of progressive, extreme  heavy music, Ne Obliviscaris  haveput together an incredible  touring line up that will dominate  the nation in May, 2019!

 

Since  the release  of the bands  critically acclaimed  album Urn in October  2017, NeObliviscaris have  been on a non stop tour of  the world performing to tens of  thousands ofpeople around the world,in  the Middle East, North America, the UK  and Europe. These willbe their first shows  on home soil in over a year!

 

The  Painted  Progression  tour is more  than a homecoming  for NeO, it's an epic,  5 band prog music extravaganza  featuring the nations other progressive  shining light, Caligula’sHorse and three international  acts!

 

Founded  in Melbourne  in 2003, Ne Obliviscaris  took the inspiration for their  name from theproud motto of Clan  Campbell based in Argyll, Scotland,  which means "forget not".

 

From  the start,  this collective  of exceptional musicians  made it clear that they did  not intendto follow any trends  or walk on well-trodden paths. Their  first demo, 'The Aurora Veil' (2007)had  a massive impact in the metal underground  far beyond the fifth continent and their debutfull-length  'Portal of I' (2012) reached the mainstream music press, which  praised their uniquearray of influences and characteristic virtuoso  violin.

 

Their  second album  'Citadel' (2014)  added avant-garde approaches  including jazz,flamenco, progressive  rock, and many other wide-ranged influences  to their solid metal base.

 

On  2017’s  Urn, Ne  Obliviscaris  have honed and  re-balanced the key  elements of theirunique  sound to a razor sharp musical  edge. The dynamic entwining of fierce  growls andemotive clean vocals, the contrast  between devastatingly intricate guitar riffs and  thunderingdrums against an unleashed violin and gorgeous  string parts as well as the perfect blendingof epic progressive  and intense extreme metal forms of expression are all marking a newpeak  in the steep rise of the band. Urn has taken Ne Obliviscaristo the next  level. Outstanding musicianship meets excellent songwriting and a firework of brilliant  ideas.

 

Parallel  to their success  on a critical level  and with an ever-growing  host of die-hard fans,the band  have increased their reputation as  an excellent live act with extensive  touring literallyaround the globe. The  financial base for this was laid by their  ground-breaking use of modernday crowd-funding  campaigns. This includes an ongoing Patreon membership  scheme underthe moniker The Ne Obluminati, which is revolutionising  the relationship between band andfans by using the ancient concept of  patronage in today's democratic setting.
