Obscura | Album Update #3

Sebastian Lanser“It´s been almost a week since I was in the studio tracking drums for the new Obscura album. It was an awesome experience, a great time with lots of fun, inspiration and exhausting drum arrangements. The drums are sounding amazing and I am really satisfied with how the arrangements turned out. I think that the new album has a lot of Obscura´s original trademarks paired with some new elements I really like. Finding a word which fits the music is kind of hard but “richness” comes to my mind when thinking of the compositions, arrangements, instrumentation and last but not least craft!” – Sebastian Lanser


“Working with Jan Vacik and Dejan Djukovic at Dreamsound Studios, Munich was the right decision to improve the band’s overall sound in terms of dynamics and brightness. A large recording room and the analog tube mixing desk gives us more freedom during the mix and let the drums shine through with a warm and punchy sound they deserve. Within five days Sebastian nailed each song and tracked the most ambitious and complex material Obscura came up to this day.” – Steffen Kummerer
