Ne Obliviscaris - The Aurora Veil
This is quite possibly the best demo ever. My favorite, at least. It's amazing that they don't have an album out yet, but there is one coming up in 2012 and I'm really looking forward to it. Ne Obliviscaris is an Australian Progressive Black Metal band, and they arguably have one of the fastest drummers in the world. Seriously, it kicks ass. They also have a violinist in the band. I always thought the violin is a great instrument to have in a Black Metal band, because it can sound beautiful, yet chaotic, depending on how it's played. They put it to very good use with the drums, setting up a great atmosphere. Another thing that you may notice is that they feature both clean vocals and death growls, which is really neat to see.
And here's a preview from their upcoming album.
