Ne Obliviscaris Reveal Emotional New Single “Graal”

Posted by Corinne Westbrook in News on January 24, 2023

The Season of Mist release is due to arrive March 24th.

Extreme progressive metal outfit Ne Obliviscaris has revealed another stunning and emotional track from their long-awaited new full-length, Exul. “Graal” is electrifyingly dark, with haunting, shredding violin and destructive vocals. The new album will be out on March 24, 2023 via Season of Mist. Pre-orders are available HERE.

“Graal” explores the inner journey to understand our own self-worth, traversing the results of oppression and mistreatment. In lieu of a comment, violinist/clean vocalist Tim Charles offers this thought-provoking poem inspired by the song ‘Graal’ and its intensely charged video:

Lost, he lies…
His failing body beaten down by the totality of existence,
The strength to rise, To persevere, To overcome,

His inner world torments him with the weight of every moment passed by, but not yet forgotten.

And yet
He is found
He is lifted

And as the essence of his line is fed forth
He breathes
He moves
He rises

Previously, the band released the single “Equus”, along with a music video, which commemorates the lives lost in the 2019-2020 Australian bushfires.

Ne Obliviscaris also has a mammoth run of tour dates, first embarking on tour throughout Europe and the UK in the Spring with support from Persephone, Asymmetric Universe and The Omnific. In the Fall, the band will trek across the US, once again joined by Persephone with additional support from Beyond Creation. All shows are listed below. Tickets are available HERE.
