OBSCURA Offer First Tease of New Album Diluvium
Obscura promised they would release their new album, Diluvium, this summer and dang it, they're going to deliver on that promise.
Today, Relapse Records confirmed a July 13th release date for the album. Additionally, they have made the first teaser of new music available and warning, it'll leave you with some blue balls:
In a previous press release, 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."
The album 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.
The debut single launches this Tuesday along with pre-orders.
