Ne Obliviscaris Posts “Pyrrhic” Guitar Playthrough

Benjamin Baret, guitarist from Australian progressive metal group Ne Oblivscaris, has released a new playthrough video for the track “Pyrrhic” – check it out below. Regarding the track, Benjamin Baret comments:

“The riffs for that song are inspired by the great Göteborg scene of the late 90′, with a more modern twist to it, the harmonized guitar part relies on a descending chromatic pattern which gives the main riff its flavor.

“The break is a classical music inspired moment, the chord positions are very piano-like which is something i love to do because it allows me to approach chord progressions in a fresher way, come with me off the beaten path!”

“Pyrrhic” is taken from Ne Obliviscaris’ latest album, “Citadel” (reviewed here). Info on a follow-up release is expected in the not too distant future.
