OBSCURA Announces New Album Diluvium For This Summer
Hey look, we didn't have to wait five years between Obscura albums again! Obscura has announced its new album Diluvium to be out sometime this summer via Relapse Records, which was recorded with longtime producer V. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence) at Woodshed Studios in Landshut, Germany. The album will feature bassist Linus Klausenitzer's father, Professor Ulf Klausenitzer, who has worked previously as a violinist and conductor with renowned musicians Arvo Pärt, Karl-Heinz Stockhausen, and Mikis Theodorakis, as well as original drummer and cellist Jonas Baumgartl on cello.
Here's what vocalist and guitarist Steffen Kummerer had to say about the album.
"Our new album Diluvium finally marks the end of Obscura’s four album circle we started around ten years ago when we wrote Cosmogenesis, followed by Omnivium and Akroasis in recent years. With Rafael Trujillo, Linus Klausenitzer, Sebastian Lanser and myself participating as equal songwriting contributors, the record turned out diverse, progressive and colorful in every possible way. We can’t wait to share the final piece of this long running four-album-concept with you and look forward to the album release along with extensive touring throughout 2018."
No release date has been announced yet, but I'd imagine that'll come along with the debut single.
