Australian prog metal masters Ne Obliviscaris have announced a European tour with Ihsahn and Astrosaur. The tour kicks off on October 29 in Sweden and will end on November 11, in Hungary. A full list of tour dates can be found below.
Ne Obliviscaris comment:
"Ihsahn, from arguably the most well known black metal band in history, Emperor, has given us the opportunity to share his European tour in support his latest solo release, the brilliant, “Ámr”. We’ve all been fans of Ihsahn’s work for many years now and to support such an iconic artist we’ve looked up to is an honour and will certainly be a defining moment in not only our careers, but also our lives. Opening will be instrumental Norwegians, Astrosaur. If you want prog, melody, metal, and history, be there."

Having gained recognition among the world metalheads, Gyze released their 3rd full-length album with Universal Music Japan in March 2017. Today Gyze have released their brand new new EP 'The Rising Dragon' ( including a stunning bonus track featuring Marc Hudson of Dragonforce! ), which gives an absolutely new feel and is filled with haunting Japanese melodies.
