Obscura Rejoined By Bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling


Obscura have officially been rejoined by bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling (Quadvium, Salazh Trio, ex-Pestilence). Thesseling‘s previous stint in the band ran from 2007 to 2011 and saw him perform on the group’s albums “Cosmogenesis” and “Omnivium“. He commented of his return:

“Perhaps fans are somewhat surprised about my comeback. After leaving Obscura in 2011, we stayed in touch and over the years I’ve visited some of their concerts. Since the departure my main focus has been on exploring 7-string bass guitar and playing different genres.

It’s really nice to be back in the fold, being involved again in the writing process, collaborating on material for the upcoming sixth studio album and to prepare for intensive touring. We expect to announce a completion of the group’s new line-up on short notice.”

His return to the outfit follows a mass departure that saw guitarist Rafael Trujillo, bassist Linus Klausenitzer and drummer Sebastian Lanser officially exit the band earlier this month.

Currently Thesseling and founding vocalist/guitarist Steffen Kummerer are the only announced members of the band’s latest lineup.
