Germany’s progressive death metal masters OBSCURA complete their long-running, four-album conceptual circle with the release of ‘Diluvium’ (defined as a great oceanic flood), their most evocative, diverse and vibrant release to date. ‘Diluvium’ is due out July 13th via Relapse Records.
The band commented further on the concept: “With the title track of our new album we present you one of the most fast forward and brutal compositions “Diluvium” has to offer. The music video created by German Cinematographer Mirko Witzki shows the first part of a connected story relating to the band’s long running four album cycle.” – Steffen Kummerer
Additionally, OBSCURA will perform at select European festivals this summer including Vienna Metal Meeting, Amsterdam Metal Meeting, Colony Summer Festival and Summer Breeze Open Air. Stay tuned for more tour dates in the near future.
Recorded with longtime producer V. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence) at Woodshed Studios in Landshut, Germany, Diluvium is a stunning achievement for the illustrious quartet and a landmark release for progressive metal as a whole. Complete with all the band’s signature elements plus groundbreaking polyrhythms, dramatic songwriting, and jaw-dropping virtuosity, OBSCURA raise the bar once again with an album that will go down in the annals of metal history as one of the most astonishing performances the genre has to offer.
