Obscura premiere the title track to their new album “A Valediction“. Mirko Witzki directed the music video for it streaming via YouTube for you below.

The upcoming new record reunites Steffen Kummerer with guitarist Christian Münzner and bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling. Drummer David Diepold (Monument Of Misanthropy, Cognizance, etc.) completes the group’s lineup. A November 19th release date has been scheduled by Relapse.

Tells frontman Kummerer:

“The title track combines past and future to the present. With a combination of virtuosity, catchiness and clear arrangements, ‘A Valediction‘ unfolds a bittersweet, fragile temper and sums up the lyrical framework of the entire album. A worthy title track and characterful summit of upcoming concerts.”

I bought their very first album when it came out. Absolutely hated it. I've sampled every album since then. Didn't really care for any of it. But this new album is something different. There a lot of At The Gates going on vocally. Been a big Diepold fan since Youtube. Both songs so far are killer.
