They’re down a drummer and a guitarist, but Obscura aren’t just going to throw in the towel, people…because they haven’t been defeated.
They’re going to hold auditions instead next month and in September, and are hopeful they’ll find replacements for both.
According to Obscura, “the yet untitled fourth full length is the third out of a four album concept that started with the release of Cosmogenesis in 2009.”
The band’s Steffen Kummerer adds:
“Currently we are in the middle of the songwriting process for our new album. The yet finished material turns out to focus on the trademarks we established during the last 12 years. Technicality paired with stringent arrangements, progressive riffing across fusion and death metal that makes Obscura sound unique. We will enter the studio by the end of 2014. Since Christian Muenzner and Hannes Grossmann departed we received requests from all over the world. We invite the candidates that may fit and get in touch directly with each person. To both, Christian and Hannes; I wish them the best for their solo careers and new projects.”
Adds Linus Klausenitzer:
“We spend a lot of time for songwriting and preproduction to make the new songs as intense as possible. Every album needs to have a certain vibe to stand out from the others. I’m glad that we can see this picture in the puzzle already.”
