Formation, The Aurora Veil, and Portal of I (2003–2012)
Nine years after formation, and five years after the release of The Aurora Veil, Ne Obliviscaris released their debut album, Portal of I, in 2012. Much trouble was experienced by the band in obtaining French guitarist Benjamin Baret an Australian visa, resulting in the delay of the album's release.
In June 2014, Ne Obliviscaris started a crowdfunding campaign to support a world tour. Their target of A$40,000 was surpassed, to reach a final amount of $86,132 as of 29 August 2014. In August 2014, the band announced the release of their second full album, Citadel. Citadel reached at #42 on the ARIA Albums Chart.
