Hailing from Ballarat in rural Victoria, Australia, Ebonivory deliver an unparalleled mosaic of raw emotion, complex rhythmic devices, and prismatic melody. The uber-talented progressive metal prodigies unleash their highly anticipated new album The Long Dream I worldwide on June 5th 2020, via Wild Thing Records.

The Long Dream I is the first of a two-part concept album, taking the form of scattered memories from a very distant but familiar life, re-living a fever-dream of youth through the lens of lessons learned, and words unsaid. Ebonivory deliver a vision that is pure and unrestrained by musical conformity, often leaving the listener nostalgic, enraged, and paralysed within the span of seconds. Entirely-self produced, mastered by Forrester Savell (Karnivool), and led by singer Charlie Powlett’s emotionally powerful delivery, every song presents a completely unique reimagining of what progressive music is capable of; shifting from the punk-inspired moments of Hanmer Street into the gritty, futuristic soundscapes of Explosions After Dark, and transcendental riffs and passages of Introvection. All the while effortlessly maintaining cohesive melodic bonds, resembling a sequence of dreams.
