Ne Obliviscaris ventures into the progressive, classical nuanced compositions with a profound depth and musical proficiency that sets the musical tendency apart from anything else toward the highest floors of melodic perfection. As shown in their debut demo entitled ‘The Aurora Veil’, which was self-released in 2007, we encountered a prolific yet very polished musical act with enough consist and maturity to sovereign even the oldest ones on the scene, gathering back then, the mouth-to-mouth recommendations and enthusiasm for fellow metal fans looking for a different musical thrill, a robust diamond rock sharpened into an exquisite relinquished masterpiece.
