OBSCURA | Sign to Nuclear Blast
Obscura’s Steffen Kummerer states, “Partnering with the world’s biggest independent metal label feels like the start of a new chapter for OBSCURA and we are very much looking forward to a great collaboration and to releasing our forthcoming sixth studio album with a great team at our side.“
Nuclear Blast‘s Jaap Wagemaker adds, “As fans ourselves at Nuclear Blast, we have long admired the artistry of German progressive death metal masters OBSCURA. We were blown away by their musical 4-album cycle that started with »Cosmogenesis« and ended with »Diluvium« complete with all the band’s signature elements plus groundbreaking polyrhythms, dramatic songwriting, and jaw-dropping virtuosity!
We knew that OBSCURA has the potential to become one of the leading forces in progressive death metal worldwide, so when the opportunity came to work with them, there was no room for second thoughts. We at Nuclear Blast are very curious to see where OBSCURA’s musicial journey beyond »Diluvium« will bring them. If you are a fan of progressive metal, you should definitely check out this band!”
OBSCURA | Share “Emergent Evolution” Music Video
Germany’s progressive death metal masters OBSCURA share the official music video for “Emergent Evolution”. The song is from the band’s 2018 released fifth album Diluvium. Watch the Mirko Witzi directed video AT THIS LOCATION.
“With the production of “Emergent Evolution” we just released the, up to this date, most ambitious music video of Obscura. Earlier this year, the entire team flew to Sicily for a week to capture astonishing shots on top of a volcano, in the middle of sulphur springs, within lithified lava streams and inside of natural vaults. We knew this video turns into something unique and special when we sorted the raw material months ago. “Emergent Evolution” exceeded our expectations by far!” – Steffen Kummerer
OBSCURA’s fifth studio album Diluvium is out now on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages are available via Relapse.com HERE and Digital Downloads / Streaming Services AT THIS LOCATION.
A full collection of OBSCURA music videos is available via YouTube HERE.
OBSCURA complete their long-running, four-album conceptual circle with the release of Diluvium (defined as a great oceanic flood), their most evocative, diverse and vibrant release to date. Recorded with longtime producer V. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence) at Woodshed Studios in Landshut, Germany, Diluvium is a stunning achievement for the illustrious quartet and a landmark release for progressive metal as a whole. Complete with all the band’s signature elements plus groundbreaking polyrhythms, dramatic songwriting, and jaw-dropping virtuosity, OBSCURA raise the bar once again with an album that will go down in the annals of metal history as one of the most astonishing performances the genre has to offer.
