Oliver Fogwell from OUR LAST ENEMY talks ‘As Within So Without’

Aussie Industrial Titans, Our Last Enemy will release their new EP ‘As Within So Without’ on September 22.

This weekend the band will also be opening for Swedish metal titans AVATAR in Sydney which marks the beginning of a very busy rest of the year ahead and beyond.

The Everblack Podcast caught up with Oli from OUR LAST ENEMY to talk about the new As Within So Without EP, opening slot for Avatar, working with CJ from Thy Art Is Murder and more!

‘As Within So Without’ is the final piece of the puzzle and follow up to 2021’s ‘As Above So Below’ which received rave 10/10 reviews and hit 26 on the Aria independent charts, bringing an epic story to its thematic conclusion.

Both releases were produced by two-time ARIA nominee DW Norton and feature the legendary John Sankey (Fear Factory, Divine Heresy) on drums.

Earlier this year the band revealed the new EP’s first single ‘Slay For Me

Fogwell comments; “These two records were written and recorded during a tumultuous time for both the band and the world, and that frustration and pain we were experiencing is evident in the sound. Underneath all that the band’s mantra of perseverance and strength still underpins it all…we’re STILL BREATHING!’

ff the back of a successful return to live touring in 2022 with an east coast run of dates to riotous crowds, the band followed it up with a main support for Powerman 5000 Australian tour earlier this year. Previously the band have also shared stages with Combichrist, Perturbator, Static X, Dope, Prong, Mnemic and more!

Their dark, industrial tones and hypnotic rhythms are a soundtrack to the apocalypse and perfect for horror movies which led to one of their songs being included in a Troma (the Toxic Avenger) movie ‘Eating Miss Campbell’ which debuted this year with the screening hosted by Kevin Smith (Clerks/Mallrats)

Our Last Enemy’s debut album Fallen Empires (produced by Christian Olde Wolbers Fear Factory) hit #1 on iTunes metal charts and the Wolves of Perigord EP hit #2

With a remix album seeing the band working with members of extreme metal bands like The Berzerker and Mortiis to electro industrial acts like Dismantled and Angelspit – OLE traverse the meeting ground for metal and industrial, while avoiding the candy cutter trappings of a classic yet maligned genre.

As Within So Without will be released on September 22
