OBSCURA | Retribution Vinyl

The band more than justifies their impressive pedigree with what became a timeless classic in the making. Reissue 2019. Limited to 1000 / 250 copies, worldwide. Release 25th of January 2019.

Now in 2018, 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.

OBSCURA | New Bass Playthrough Video

Notreble.com is featuring the first bass playthrough video for Obscura’s new album “Dilivium“. Full post & video available here.

Linus Klausenitzer: “When I planned to record a playthrough video, I decided to play the title track of the album. It is very different to what we have composed before and it has become one of my favorite tracks playing live. For this video I wanted to have a visual setup in the style of the album artwork so we recorded it during our Diluvium Amerika tour. The bass that I use is an Ibanez Custom Fretless BTB based on a BTB1826E Premium.

On the Official OBSCURA website we offer free playbacks for bassists that want to play their own version of the songs of Diluvium. Also all bass tablature books are available there.

See Obscura live on their upcoming tours through Europe and Japan.
