NeO will bring their level of intensity to life at this intimate space in NYC. They’ll be joined by Allegaeon and Winter Nights.
Ne Obliviscaris will bring their unique Melodic Death Metal to this region once more and you don’t want to miss them as its some compelling stuff. They’ll be joined by Black Crown Initiate, Starkill and Winter Nights.
I’m just back from a visit to family down South but you would never notice unless I mentioned it since I kept the postings from the San Diego Comic Con coming at the readership like a machine gun fire. This morning I put it out there to the powers that be that I had interest in a giveaway for the Ne Obliviscaris show at Gramercy Theatre and the interest was mutual so read more about this sure to be a monster of a show.
The Details: I’ve only caught the band Ne Obliviscaris once in concert and they blew my Metal Mind which was why I was eager to bring a few fans into the mix for this one. I think it’s a great thing to see just how broad the spectrum is for our beloved genre. Their sound is both crushing and creative and seeing them headline will be pretty damned cool. Then there is the direct support band Black Crown Initiate to consider. Wow does this band slam you down onto the ground like a sumo wrestler. I’ve actually seen them the most out of all the bands on this bill and think you must be a part of it if you know what is good for you. Leading off the national supporting bands is Starkill who we also enjoy and a local group of positive note in Winter Nights. Read on below on how to participate since you know you want to.
When and Where: Friday, July 29th @ Gramercy Theatre (127 West 23rd Street, NYC)

Hey Metal Legions, now I know you are all super excited about the ready to get underway Guns ‘N Roses tour but I am here to let you know that there are other things happening in the world of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal and they relate to some truly fascinating musical enterprises. The other day I got the press release about this first-ever North American headlining tour by Ne Obliviscaris and I’ve embedded the press copy beneath the poster. I’ll return with some thoughts to wrap this all up. Let’s go.
The Press Release:
Australian progressive metal visionaries NE OBLIVISCARIS have announced their first-ever North American headlining tour. The tour begins on July 12 in San Diego at Brick by Brick, and runs until mid-August. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below. NE OBLIVISCARIS, hailed as “One of the absolute best live performances I’ve seen in living memory” (No Clean Singing) are touring in support of their acclaimed new album, ‘Citadel’. The album, which has been called “a game changer” (Sputnik Music), and “complex, mind-bending metal” (Decibel Magazine) is streaming here. NE OBLIVISCARIS previously unveiled a video for the track “Curator” here. “Curator” is the final movement taken from a larger composition titled “Painters of the Tempest (Part II): Triptych Lux”, off the band’s new album, ‘Citadel’.

They say that when life hands you lemons you make lemonade and in this case when a tour your on finds the headliner with Visa issues, you quickly book some side shows as a headliner to not find the time a complete wash. Such is the case with the band Ne Obliviscaris who announced a three night batch of headlining shows while they await the arrival of Cradle Of Filth. Check them out below the poster.
“Last minute HEADLINE shows in PHILADELPHIA, PROVIDENCE & BALTIMORE announced! Replacing the 4 cancelled shows with Cradle of Filth due to their visa delays. Tickets $10 at the door. Spread the word!”
Jan. 26 Philadelphia, PA @ Voltage Lounge w/Black Crown Initiate
Jan. 27 Providence, RI @ Firehouse 13
Jan. 28 Baltimore, MD @ Baltimore Soundstage
PiercingMetal Thoughts: You heard the man, spread the word. Get out there and support something new and different that has not had such a chance to visit you before. Now is your chance to be a proper Metal head and discover new things like I suggested that you do in my New Year’s Day Post. This is also only ten bucks and that is about the cost of a beer here in New York City so if you are near any of these venues you do NOT have an excuse at all. I’m not sure what the Butcher Babies are doing during this disruption but let’s hope that its all sorted out before too much else is lost from the delays.
