Extreme progressive metallers Ne Obliviscaris released their third album Urn on October 27th and quickly made their way to North America for a headlining tour. I had the great opportunity to catch one of their shows with Allegaeon at The Blind Tiger in Greensboro, North Carolina. Before the prog assault, however, I had the opportunity to speak with guitarist extraordinaire Benji Baret about the tour and the new record.
We chatted about the how the new songs were integrating into the set, how the new record came together, and where the Urn world tour may take them next. I also asked him about how some of the biggest songs on the album were written and got some surprising answers! Check out the audio of the interview below, or listen to it on our Mixcloud.
