The debut from australian metallers Ne Obliviscaris is one of my favourite albums this year and will much likely be found on my top 3 at the end of the year. They have existed allmost 10 years, but have released only a 3-track demo back in 2007. All 3 songs from their demo is included on this album.
All but 1 tracks on the album are around 10 minutes long, but there are no dull moments here. The 2 vocalists compiles each other great, i think, n instead of just guitarsolos, there r violinsolos, which are splendid and adds a folk-feel to the music.
Luckily we dont have to wait long for next album, since they have announced a follow-up next year. If its as good as this, we will wait and see. An instant classic.
