OBSCURA have announced the vinyl reissue of their second full-length album Cosmogenesis. Repressed on vinyl for the first time since it’s original release in 2009, OBSCURA‘s Relapse debut, Cosmogenesis is a front-to-back stroke of brilliance that seamlessly fuses modern metals extremity, the upper levels of technical virtuosity, and the symphonic grace of progressive music into a flawless album experience. On Cosmogenesis, OBSCURA more than justified their impressive pedigree as technical metal masters, an album that has since been regarded as one of the best metal albums of the 21st century.
