OBSCURA Begin Recording Fifth Studio Album
October 3rd, 2017

Landshut, Germany-based progressive death metal group Obscura have entered the studio to begin recording their as-yet-untitled fifth full-length studio album, slated for summer 2018 issue through Relapse Records.

The outing is being recorded with longtime producer V. Santura at Woodshed Studios in Landshut. The effort marks the final instalment in a four-album concept cycle which began with February 2009 affair Cosmogenesis.

Vocalist / guitarist Steffen Kummerer issued the following statement: “With our new album we complete a four album cycle that started back in 2009 when Cosmogenesis saw the light of day, followed by Omnivium in 2011 and our most recent record, Akróasis which was released earlier last year. Four albums linked in depth in terms of music, lyrics and visuals turned into a consistent 10 year long effort.

“We enter Woodshed Studios alongside our long time producer and friend, V. Santura to record our most experimental and progressive record to date. While we took off the upcoming three months to record and produce our new album, we will finish the Akroasis World Tour with additional tour dates around the globe in 2018.”

Obscura’s line-up is as follows;

Steffen Kummerer (vocals and guitars)
Rafael Trujillo (guitars)
Linus Klausenitzer (bass)
Sebastian Lanser (drums)

Fourth studio record Akróasis was released in February 2016 via Relapse Records.
