Australian progressive metal visionaries NE OBLIVISCARIS have announced the re-release of their long sold out EPs ‘Sarabande to Nihil’ and ‘Hiraeth’ for free via their Patreon campaign. The band are offering the EPs exclusively via their “Ne Obluminati” fanclub program here.
These out of print EPs feature re-recorded tracks from the band’s early years and the ‘Portal of I’ era. They initially sold out in 2014 and have been out of print ever since. There are no plans to release these in any other format, so participating in this pledge drive is the only chance to hear these very special recordings.
NE OBLIVISCARIS vocalist and founding member Tim Charles discusses the campaign at greater length here.
