It is with heavy hearts that we announce NE OBLIVISCARIS’ frontman, Xenoyr, will be sitting out the band’s upcoming North American tour. However, the show must go on, and the band has enlisted the talented James Dorton of Black Crown Initiate to fill in during Xenoyr’s absence.
NE OBLIVISCARIS, the Australian progressive metal outfit known for pushing the boundaries of the genre, released their highly anticipated fourth studio album, “Urn,” in 2017. The album received widespread critical acclaim and further solidified the band’s status as one of the most innovative groups in the metal scene.
Xenoyr, known for his powerful and emotive vocals, recently became a father, and as expected, he wants to dedicate time to his newborn child and family. Understandably, the band fully supports his decision and will continue to work on new material for their next release during this time.
Black Crown Initiate, another formidable force in the progressive metal world, hailing from Pennsylvania, has stepped up to ensure that NE OBLIVISCARIS’ North American tour will go ahead as planned. With their unique blend of technicality and atmosphere, Black Crown Initiate is a fitting choice to fill in for Xenoyr.
James Dorton, the charismatic frontman of Black Crown Initiate, is no stranger to the stage. With his commanding stage presence and stunning vocal range, he is sure to deliver a captivating performance that will leave fans begging for more. Dorton’s deep growls and soaring cleans will undoubtedly add an interesting twist to NE OBLIVISCARIS’ already diverse sound.
Fans will have an opportunity to witness this exciting collaboration firsthand as NE OBLIVISCARIS embark on their highly anticipated North American tour. The band will be showcasing their virtuosic abilities and intricate songwriting across a series of energetic performances.
While the absence of Xenoyr may disappoint some fans, it also serves as a reminder that musicians are also human beings with personal lives and responsibilities. It’s crucial that we respect their decisions to prioritize their families and support them throughout their journey.
In the meantime, NE OBLIVISCARIS fans can take solace in the fact that Xenoyr’s absence will be temporary, and the band will continue creating astonishing music. With James Dorton filling in, this tour promises to be an unforgettable experience for all who attend.
