"A Blurred Sense Of Divine" The New Album From Grammy Nominated Producer / Engineer Josh Wilbur Now Available On Xact Records

Biography

For nearly four years, the members of Nobis (formerly Melee) have been scouring the infected ears of northern New England heavy metal fans. These ears, already tainted by the misleading interpretation of what modern day metal is all about, have taken greatly to the cleansing. Drummer, Lee LeVasseur, Guitarist, Josh Torrey, Bassist, Tom Small, and Vocalist, Tim Sereyko combine forces to bring to the masses Maine’s most dominant heavy music configuration to date. Levasseur’s lightning technique mixed with Smalls’ barrage of low end and Torrey’s dominating guitar prowess provide Sereyko with an entire spectrum in which to work an array of vocal screams and melodies.

An impressive resume of national acts including Anthrax, Killswitch Engage, Life of Agony, 18 Visions, Otep, Candiria, American Head Charge, Blood Simple, Dog Fashion Disco, RA, Dry Kill Logic etc. compliments an already unmatched live assault of sonic power, leaving any attending a Nobis show walking away with a sense of fulfillment.

Grammy Nominated Producer/Engineer, Josh Wilbur (Atreyu, Chevelle, Green Day, Fuel, System Of A Down), once again has teamed up with Nobis, this time for their first full-length effort, "A Blurred Sense of Divine".

All it takes is one song for a listener to realize that Nobis is here to let their brand burn deep into the skin of the heavy music industry. Sit still, the pain is only temporary, the sound is forever.

Lyrics

Brand Name Slave

Written By: Nobis

It's a crying shame what some eyes must see
What I thought was just T.V.
Took a sharp turn toward reality
Exposing me
To the inhumanity that so many live with each day
We represent freedom yet we harbor these slaves

Run down and withered inside
Pounding oneself to the ground under flourescent light
Sixty-plus hours per week for just pennies to survive
(brand name slave)

Low operation and labor costs, send the the work overseas
Where governments seem to fold giving rise to atrocity
Rules and regulations need not apply
We'll squeeze the life out of already lifeless souls
Work them for what little they're worth mistake greed for pride

What you get at some select stores may just be a product of immorality,
just some food for thought

Liveable wage divided by a few cents a day doesn't even out
Time to reinvent the standards of humanity

Run down and withered inside
Pounding oneself to the ground under flourescent light
Sixty-plus hours per week for just pennies to survive
(brand name slave)

Third word nations, now our homeland, an unpleasant surprise
You'd have to see it with your own eyes, this is true life

And I've seen all that I care to see, time for a change, walk the plank
fall into history drown in the sea of ignominy

Run down and withered inside
pounding oneself to the ground under flourescent light
Sixty-plus hours per week for just pennies to survive
(brand name slave)

Shadow Of Doubt

Written By: Nobis

Slight difference in opinion, regarding the direction, toward finding the right foundation
A thousand times of outspoken assurance
And still answers remain to all in question

Open up your eyes, those in doubt tend to see the light
Quicker than a new day relieving night

Slight difference in opinion, regarding the direction, toward finding the right foundation

Eight cheeks turn at the thought of conforming to the ideals of any
Casting a shadow of a doubt

Open up your eyes, those in doubt tend to see the light
Quicker than a new day relieving night

Shadow of doubt

I’ve said time and again that failure is not an option for me to tolerate
Binding promise to oneself holds its weight in gold
May the sun shed light upon the shadow of doubt

Slight difference in opinion, regarding the direction, toward finding the right foundation

Destroy your disbelief
Employ method to means
Selfish, though it may seem
Destroy, employ

Eyes...open up your eyes, those in doubt tend to see the light
Quicker than a new day relieving night

Destroy your disbelief
Employ method to means
Selfish, though it may seem
Destroy, employ
