Singled Out: New Project's Ora Pro Nobis

Industrial metal group New Project has released their single "Ora Pro Nobis" which was remixed by Zardonic and to celebrate we asked guitarist Marty to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

The idea for Ora Pro Nobis had originally come many years ago sitting at the dinner table with my family. My mum recalled singing Ave Maria for weddings when growing up in Hungary. Ora Pro Nobis (Latin for Pray For Us) is a line from that prayer. She thought it would be a great title for a song . The track was written and demoed but did not make it to a release at the time. A short passage from Ave Maria was included on the Ultraviolent Light album in 2008 for a song called Forever Far Beyond, dedicated to my half sister who passed away from cancer while we were recording the album in London. The song has only been played live once in 2010 at a reunion gig in Sydney.

Came 2015 and my mum was in the middle of her own battle with cancer and the band (who had been quiet since the album) decided to come together to record the song and it finally saw the light of day. I had the idea of having a remix done and thought of my days as a DJ spinning Zardonic's "Bring Back The Glory". I got in touch with Zardonic and showed him the song. He immediately got on board and what you have here is a merciless and brutal yet majestically beautiful track! My mum still continues to battle cancer and I hope that this song (in all forms) brings her further inspiration and an enhanced will to fight.

The remix pairs New Project's industrial metal and Zardonic's metal EDM as the perfect get up and go for all occasions...in the morning, hard day at work, late night BDSM session (safe word Ora Pro Nobis), gaming, on the dancefloor or standing tall and proud before the rock apocalypse, and always best enjoyed through a cybernetic implant.

"Pain and Pleasure, Indivisible"

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the group right here!
