OBSCURA | release new single & video for “Solaris”

Just recently, virtuosic extreme metallers, OBSCURA announced that their sixth studio album  “A Valediction”  will see the light of day on November 19th and that they are ready to hit the road with  their upcoming European tour in autumn. Today it is time for the first single and video from their new masterpiece, called “Solaris
Founder & mastermind Steffen Kummerer comments on the track as follows:

“Solaris” turned out to become one of the band’s shortest and utmost direct compositions featuring all trademarks, lots of attitude and melodic approach. Flattering guitar work, pushing drums and swinging bass lines combined with a relentless vocal performance and ultrasonic leads became easily a highlight of “A Valediction”.   

The video has been directed by Mirko Witzkiand you can watch it here:
