“Ne Obliviscaris”, which means “forget not” is the proud motto of Clan Campbell. These highlanders were as successful as ruthless and one inspiration for George R. R. Martin’s “Game of Thrones”. Yet the Australian band Ne Obliviscaris is neither dealing with folk metal nor bloody minded. It may be said that their compositions at least as complex as Scotland’s history and these musicians share the adventurous spirit of Argyll’s clansmen. Instead the multi-layered songs of their sophomore album ‘Citadel’ are infusing the metal base with avant-garde approaches to jazz, flamenco, progressive rock and many more elements.
‘Citadel’ will be released via Season Of Mist on November 7, 2014, and on November 11, 2014 in North America.
