Dan Presland – Ne Obliviscaris – Intra Venus Exclusive Drum Play-through

Australian drummer Dan Presland and the visionary Ne Obliviscaris return with their stunning new album ‘Urn.’ The album sees the forward-thinking band hone their unique and expansive style that blends the best of both the extreme and the progressive sides of metal. Epic tracks like “Intra Venus” and “Libera (Part’s 1 and 2)” exude power, grace, and the confidence of a band at their best. Ne Obliviscaris is one of modern metal’s most dynamic bands, and ‘Urn’ is yet another masterpiece.

This video is a studio play through of the track ‘Intra Venus’ from the ‘Urn’ tracking session Feb 2017. Drums engineered by Troy Mccosker at Pony music studios, Album mixed by Mark Lewis at Audiohammer Studios, FL USA.
