Obscura Finish Writing New Album


Obscura have announced that they have completed the writing process for their sixth studio album which they intend to release in 2021 via Nuclear Blast. Recording sessions will take place in December at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström (Opeth, At The Gates) at the helm.

That album will feature the return of guitarist Christian Münzner and bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling. Drummer David Diepold (Cognizance, etc.) was also added to the band earlier this year.

Vocalist/guitarist Steffen Kummerer commented of the album:

“As of now, songwriting duties for the new, yet untitled album have been finished. We picked the most promising compositions out of more than twenty pieces written during the last months and we can’t wait to record our sixth studio effort starting in December.

While the new album contains more guitar solos than any of our records before, all compositions are eagerly waiting to be performed live on stage and celebrated worldwide with our fans. As a collective, we are enthusiastic about the diverse, progressive and heavy songs to be released in 2021 through Nuclear Blast Records.”
