Vol #008: Ne Obiliscaris Exul: Alchemical album review with special guest DJ Deathwish
This was a very fun experience with DJ Deatwish as my cohort in this first ever Alchemical Album Review featuring the Progressive Death Metal Band Ne Obliviscaris and their newest album Exul which was written and conceived pre-pandemic. The recordings began in February of 2020 and before they could be completed, band members became stranded abroad and thus delayed completion and ultimately, the release just arrived a few weeks ago.

I hope you enjoy the review, but mostly I hope you enjoy the music from this incredible band. If you find yourself so enamored, they are coming to play live in the bay area on Oct. 22, 2023 @ the DNA Lounge.

We do also want to pay tribute to the late Tina Turner who just passed today @ the age of 83. She was a true rocker, the gypsy, The Acid Queen, a survivor and a hero and an inspiration to many, and she will be missed. Our set ends with a great 10 minute live track from her.
