Obscura Post New Sound Samples Online

OBSCURA issue the following press release:

"OBSCURA caused quite a stir when they - out of nowhere - toured as support for SUFFOCATION on their European tour 2006 and when they independently released their debut album Retribution later on. Now they are back and stronger than ever before! Mastermind Steffen Kummerer (guitar/vocals) is now backed up by no one else than the former PESTILENCE bass player Jeroen Thesseling and the ex-NECROPHAGIST members Christian Muenzner (guitar) and Hannes Großmann (drums). Together they create their vision of the future of extreme metal. A symbiosis of death, thrash and black metal merged with progressive elements and technical as well as compositional demand.

German death metal band OBSCURA has issued the following update:

"OBSCURA is excited to announce our friend Hannes Grossmann as the new permanent drummer. Hannes will start playing drums for OBSCURA on the upcoming tour during February/March starting February 22, 2008.

"Hannes did some incredible jobs in bands like DEVILS CRY or at least NECROPHAGIST and will also play on the next full-length of OBSCURA.

"Jonas Baumgartl [drums] and Jonas Fischer [bass] had to leave OBSCURA after the last tour because of scheduling conflicts and other obligations with their studies and other bands. They decided to break with OBSCURA to focus on their studies and are not able to go on tour anymore. We wish both of them all the best for their upcoming works or projects.

"So OBSCURA is now searching for a talented and skilled musician for the bass guitar. Get in touch through: steffen@obscura-metal.com."

OBSCURA's upcoming CD will be recorded with V. Santura (DARK FORTRESS) at The Crypt Studios in Germany. The cover art and layout will be created by German artist Timo Wuerz.

Released last year, OBSCURA's debut album, "Retribution", was produced by Alex Krull (ATROCITY, LEAVES' EYES) and includes guest appearances by V. Santura (DARK FORTRESS), Matthias Röderer (ATROCITY), Thorsten Bauer (ATROCITY) and Martl (PROFANITY).
