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. Something that the band simply calls extreme metal art. The focus lies on songwriting though and not just showing off technical riffs, blast beats and sweeps."

"The three-track promo CD which was recorded by Victor Bullok (DARK FORTRESS plus live member of CELTIC FROST) clearly shows the immense development that Steffen Kummerer was able to make with the help of the band’s new line-up. The new songs are more mature, better structured and more technical on the one hand, but still very catchy on the other. With this combination Obscura are up to par with any extreme metal band out there, past or present."
