A successful crowd-funding campaign and Patreon fund have drawn equal amounts of support and disapproval, but despite this, Ne Obliviscaris understand that it’s the music that counts. Urn matters. It succeeds in combining the intricacies people expect from the band with enough measured dynamics to balance the progressive nature of the material. Urn is another impressive musical statement from a band that is pushing the boundaries of the extreme metal scene in more ways than one.
Urn is out now via Rocket/Season Of Mist.
