NEBULARIS release new single ‘Critias’, debut album ‘EXODUS – SHATTERED EARTH SAGA – PART I’, out now.

Watch ‘Critias‘:


Friday, February 23rd, Dublin Ireland – Having gripped the attention of the underground Irish scene early last year, there is no question that galactic progressive unit, Nebularis have come a long way in a very short period of time.

Order the album:

Today finally sees Nebularis release their full-length LP, ‘Exodus – Shattered Earth Saga – Part I’ in tandem with LP’s final single, ‘Critias‘.

Having previously released ‘Subnautica‘, ‘Cataclysm‘, ‘Holocene‘ and most recently, ‘Voyager‘ to rave reviews, the band were also hand-selected for Ireland’s National Broadcasting platform, RTE 2XM for a new project titled ‘Sessions From Oblivion‘, as well as reaching the final in Bloodstock Metal 2 The Masses Ireland, and invited to perform at the bi-annual Siege of Limerick day festival this past October.

Exodus – Shattered Earth Sage – Part I‘ is a immersive body of work that sees the band as architects of a musical concept that highlights tragedy, hope and strength, not to mention a plethora of soaring melodies and technical progressive metal riffing from guitarist, Mó Sheerin.

Speaking of the new album, the band explains; “A cracked ball held together by its own mass, its luminescent blood seeping through cracks that span entire continents and boiling oceans: this is the last view the remnants of humanity have of Earth as they flee in horror and anger. But this event marks only the beginning of their saga, as they come to terms with the reality of what they have done, and perhaps, will do in the years and centuries to come. The overriding question in their minds is twofold; will they find a new home amongst the stars, and if so, will they repeat the same mistakes that led to their worlds obliteration?”

Shedding some light on the albums concept, guitarist Mó Sheerin adds: I always sought out for the album to have an illustrious display of Science Fiction and general dork lore. Hythams’ (Vocals) lyrics really brought the concept to fruition, and were so proud of his work. His words truly painted the imagery behind the story of humanity on a relentless quest to find a new and less hostile life beyond the stars.

Speaking of the new single, vocalist Hytham Martin says: A long time has passed since the remnants of humanity have colonised Elysium. After dozens of decades of struggle and compromise, the countries, continents and unions have come to an uneasy truce, with the help of the Elysium-born generations who have chosen to both acknowledge the mistakes of the past, and honor humanitys losses.
Nevertheless, none of this could have been achieved without the intervention of their god Asterion, also known as 
The Voyager, who guided humanity for over a millennium across the black void of space in an effort to save them from themselves. Yet, there are those in the shadows and corners of Elysium who have secret heretical knowledge, and plan to expose the origins of this false God!

The new single follows previous isolated tracks CataclysmSubnauticaHolocene, and ‘Voyager‘, which all contribute to the blossoming story that unfolds throughout the album.
