Urn Australian & New Zealand tour for February 2018 local supports announced & tour trailer release.

Australia’s foremost Kings of progressive, extreme heavy music, Ne Obliviscaris will be touring across Australia and New Zealand next month in support of their new album Urn!

Watch the official Tour Video below.

The band recently welcomed fellow Melbourne progressive powerhouse Circles as special guests on ALL Australian shows!

Today they are excited to announce the local bands in each city who will be opening each night. Kicking off in Adelaide, Sun Of Gaia will showcase their progressive blend of melodic death metal in front of an eager crowd at Fowlers.

Melbourne metal fans will get an extra dose of bottom end as The Omnific hit the stage with not one, but two bass players! No guitar, just two basses, and some thundering drums. In our nation’s capital, Immorium is primed to deliver a set that drips with originality. Drawing influence from multiple heavy genres, they deliver a full spectrum of emotive music that appeals to all.

Hailing from the NSW Hunter Valley, The Loom Of Time will step into Newcastle to deliver a set that’s bound to have the locals visiting wine country to track the source of their molten metal. Sydney guitar superstar, James Norbert Ivanyi has been on a near vertical career projection over the last two years. His instrumental guitar histrionics have seen his fanbase grow all over the globe.

In Brisbane, progressive, symphonic death metallers Kaerulean will add a touch of orchestral majesty early on in an evening filled with heavy metal theatre.

Over in New Zealand, fans will treated to two awesome locals at each show. In Auckland, it’s progressive groove merchants, Set On End and the most brutal Metal Tower. In Wellington, purveyors of dissonant, tech death, Order Of Diptera will be offset by ambient noisemakers Elim.

Wrapping up this epic tour in Perth are post rock, ambient black metal titans Deadspace.
