Hailing from Melbourne Australia, Naberus are a five piece metal band heavily influenced by melodic death, and thrash metal. Soon after forming in 2009, the band released their demo ‘Ruins of Society’ (2010), which showcased their ability to blend aggression, melody and groove. The demo captivated listeners worldwide, reaching #4 in the mp3.com.au metal charts. The band quickly drew the attention of producer Ermin Hamidovic (Periphery, Elm street, Orpheus, Eye of the Enemy, In Malices Wake) who recorded the band’s next EP release entitled “The Fallen” (2011) at his studio Systematic Productions. Over the next two years, the band played many shows throughout Australia, including festivals such as the prestigious Sonic Forge (2011 & 2012), and Atmoshphere. The band performed alongside Soilwork in 2015, and continued to develop a following online.
In 2014, the band began to write more songs and revisited Systematic Productions and producer Ermin Hamidovic. In early 2015 they independently released “Reveries” which contained nine amazing songs that define the unique sound Naberus has come to embrace after years of fine-tuning. The band pressed a very limited quantity of Reveries, sent them to dozens of record labels all over the world, and got the attention of Chris Poland at Eclipse Records (Mushroomhead, A Breach of SIlence, Bobaflex) who signed the band to an exclusive world-wide deal. The band quickly re-entered the studio, writing additional material and recorded five more songs for a total of fourteen songs.
The new album “The Lost Reveries” contains heavy, intricate riffs complemented by a strong and powerful rhythm section. The songs are laid beneath a powerful, striking vocal performance incorporating chaotic, intense growls, and powerful melodic cleans. The result showcases a unique and masterful blend of many facets of classic melodic death and modern aggressive heavy metal.
Naberus has left audiences in awe of their energetic and captivating live shows. Not only recreating the power and aggression of their recorded material, but going above and beyond with their on stage presence and persona, engaging stage show and relentless crowd interaction. Naberus are ready to cement their place in the metal scene worldwide with “The Lost Reveries“, which is planned for release this Fall, 2016.
