I am getting a slow start posting today as I did a lot of non music related work today and am wiped out, plus wasted a bunch of time reading bad reviews of The Dark Tower movie. I actually thought the movie was pretty cool and while it was very, very streamlined, you’d have to be an idiot not to grasp the plot and it left set up to develop a lot more stuff from the books in the future or in the potential tv show as well. People should relax. The cast was cool and McConaughey whispering emotionless hate commands was fairly fear inducing. The film also serves as a canonical sequel to the novel series, which concludes with the revelation that Roland’s quest is a cyclical time loop; the presence of the Horn of Eld, which Roland carries in the film, indicates that this is the next cycle.
Anyway, this is not a movie review site but I always have tangents about comic shows and fantasy adaptations accidentally, haha. NOW here is some cool tour news for fans of the current bigger stars of the young crop of tech and extreme prog metal.
Australian progressive metallers NE OBLIVISCARIS have announced a headlining US tour! The “Urn North American Tour 2017” begins on November 1 in San Francisco, and sees the band traveling across the country, making stops in Los Angeles, Vancouver, Montreal, New York, Austin, and more, before concluding on December 4. Support on this tour comes from ALLEGAEON. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
Regarding the tour, the band comments: “We will be landing for this tour only a few days after ‘URN’ is released and couldn’t be more excited to present to you the first tour of our ‘Urn’ album cycle. You can expect a full 90 min. show featuring songs from all 3 albums!”
NE OBLIVISCARIS will tour in support of their new album Urn. The band’s highly anticipated album (Number 8 on our top ten most anticipated Metal Riot Fall albums list) will be released worldwide on October 27. “Urn (Part I) – And Within The Void We Are Breathless” is streaming online now at the Season of Mist YouTube channel.
Urn is now available for pre-order across various CD and LP formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.
