The band recently entered frontman Erik Rutan's own Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL to begin recording the new studio album. J.J. Hrubovcak has been added as the band's bassist.

Commented Rutan: "The band has been locked up in Mana Recording Studios doing pre-production for the past two months, finishing up songs that we have been writing over the last year in between tours and albums that I've produced, and we feel we have come up with one of Hate Eternal's heaviest, most twisted, evil, melodic, and insane albums yet.

"It was my goal to expand upon what the band has done in the past, and add new dynamics and twists to the traditional, dissonant Hate Eternal style, yet keep it in the same vein. It took the three of us really pushing ourselves, and digging deep into the essence of who we are as musicians and writers and players to create something very unique and special. We cannot wait for everyone to hear what we have in store."

Obscura Guitarist To Release Solo Album

Obscura guitarist Christian Muenzner has posted the following update online in regards to his forthcoming solo album:

"Being a fan of instrumental guitar music for many years, this has always been a dream of mine.

"After I finished recording my guitar parts for the upcoming Obscura album 'Omnivium', I felt quite inspired and spent all of my free time working on the songs for this project.

"The CD is gonna contain 12 instrumental songs. Stylistically, the music is quite diverse and has influences from various genres such as neoclassical shred, fusion, power metal, hard rock, prog and thrash metal. And, of course, the songs will have guitar all over it! I like to describe it as '80s Shrapnel Records shred meets modern metal.

"I am super-happy and honored that some of the world's best metal musicians agreed to work on this album with me!

"I'm very excited and can't wait to hear their contributions!"

Obscura Drummer Releasing Instructional DVD

Obscura drummer Hannes Grossman is working on his first instructional drum DVD titled “Progressive Concepts for the Modern Metal Drummer." The DVD will feature different chapters about hand/foot techniques, blast beats, advanced double bass drumming, rhythmic modulations, and song and performance tutorials.

Grossman commented on his forthcoming DVD: "After the recordings for Obscura's new album I decided to start filming because the energy of the recording process was still valid. The final motivation came from Nile-drummer George Kollias, with whom we toured in Japan. Thanks again, Bro'! Of course the DVD will not only feature solo and song performances, but also very deep advice about the things that I use, like finger control technique, hybrid techniques, advanced foot technique or odd-time signatures."

Obscura has also been confirmed for the Mass Deathtruction Festival in Belgium and the Bang Your Head Festival in Luxembourg this December.

Obscura Reveals New Album Details

Obsccura has recently completed work on the band's new album "Omnivium" and has revealed its track listing as: “Septuagint," “Vortex Omnivium," “Ocean Gateways," “Euclidean Elements," “Prismal Dawn," “Celestial Spheres," “Velocity," “A Transcendental Serenade," and “Aevum." The album was recorded at Woodshed Studio in southern Germany with engineer V. Santura and is expected to see a March 2011 release date. Additional album details will be announced shortly.

Obscura drummer Hannes Grossman commented on recording the album: "The recording process was intense and time-consuming, but it brought us many steps forward as musicians both individually and collectively. The songs are still catchy, but there are more epic parts involved, as well as faster and more melodic songs. The extremes of the band's sound extend on all sides, so to say. Expect some things which have never been done before like this in Death Metal!"
