Starting out as a three-piece the band spent the early part of Summer 2023 seeking a full-time bassist, leading to the introduction of one Riccardo DiMaio in July (pictured below).
Speaking of the new single, the band comments: “Holocene is possibly our heaviest, darkest and the most cinematic track up to date. It reveals a much heavier side to Hytham’s vocals, while and yet maintains to the touching nature of his clean vocals.
Riff-wise, Mo created a much more ominous mood with this one while still maintaining her melodic signature sound creating a Yin-Yang effect. Drum-wise, Damian created a very strong foundation, and kept with the frantic and hopeful theme of the song. You can hear all his usual “proggy” grooves as well as the more extreme part of his playing. ‘Holocene’ the fastest double bass part in Nebularis‘ catalogue to date.
Synth and orchestration wise ‘Holocene’ is a lot more cinematic compared to the other two tracks with a very special surprise in the middle of the song. Over all the main things that set the song apart from others are combination of moods, and the brand new cinematic elements that take the listener on a whole new journey.”
