Nebularis’ Holocene

Hailing from the Irish capital, Nebularis is a three-piece technical metal project that encapsulates the essence of sci-fi, cinematic film scores, intent on developing powerhouse progressive arrangements that exceed expectations.

Their latest single, ‘Holocene’ is available on all streaming platforms and you can check it out here at RAMzine.

 “‘Holocene’ is possibly our heaviest, darkest and the most cinematic track up to date. It reveals a much heavier side to Hytham’s vocals, while and yet maintains to the touching nature of his clean vocals, “said the band.

“Riff-wise, Mo created a much more ominous mood with this one while still maintaining her melodic signature sound creating a Yin-Yang effect. Drum-wise Damian created a very strong foundation, and kept with the frantic and hopeful theme of the song. You can hear all his usual proggy grooves as well as the more extreme part of his playing. ‘Holocene’ the fastest double bass part in Nebularis‘ catalogue to date. 

“Synth and orchestration wise ‘Holocene’ is a lot more cinematic compared to the other two tracks with a very special surprise in the middle of the song. Over all the main things that set the song apart from others are combination of moods, and the brand new cinematic elements that take the listener on a whole new journey.”

The band’s debut single was ‘Cataclysm’, released while finishing touches were being put to their forthcoming album by engineer/producer/musician Ben Wanders (The Enigma Division). In May came Subnautica’, that flowed seamlessly in line with their futuristic concept and is linked to ‘Cataclysm’.
Guitarist Mó Sheerin said of that last single: “The intergenerational crew of the colony-ship Sigma have awakened to a harsh reality. The ship’s navigational system Voyager has foreseen the need to refuel, and has chartered a course to a suitable celestial body. Upon awakening, the initial euphoria of reaching a possibly habitable world is crushed; the planet is an ocean world with no land in sight!”

With the full-length album due later in the year, you can also check out the video for Subnautica’ here at RAMzine.
