NE OBLIVISCARIS & COGNIZANCE Members Team Up For New Song "To Remain Dormant"
A song written by Cognizance guitarist Alex Baillie and performed by the man himself alongside Ne Obliviscaris drummer Dan Presland and bassist Martino Garattoni is exactly as insane as you'd think it would be. The single is currently a standalone effort, but here'd hoping this turns into something more!
Here's what Baillie had to say.
New music! I wrote this instrumental track over 3 years ago and then through various twists and turns teamed up with Dan Presland & Martino Garattoni of Ne Obliviscaris to complete the song. We recorded the music across 3 countries; UK, Italy and Australia 🇦🇺
Working with these guys has been a great experience and I’m stoked to see what comes next. Thanks to John Douglass for the mix/master and the internet for presenting another opportunity 🤝
And here's what Presland had to say.
This band is a collective effort from Alex Baillie, Dan Presland & Martino Garattoni. Known for their work in the likes of Ne Obliviscaris, Vipassi, Cognizance & Ancient Bards (to name a few). This outfit presents an instrumental yet visceral take on Progressive Death Metal. The project started almost 2 years ago when I (Dan) put a facebook status up (how sick is social media for this aspect?) of any sick guitarists who wanted to collaborate on some tunes. Alex hit me up and the rest is history. I actually tracked drums for this over a year ago on the back of a session job I did as I finished early. Tino then slapped some bass and Alex laid his riffage down to finish it off. Alex wrote practically the whole chunk of this track, and we all chimed in with our own flavors to create what you hear. We are real stoked on this little creative effort, and who knows what could happen in the future! If you enjoy, please share!
