Of their conceptual idea for their album cycle, which means, no more waiting five years, thats right we will have a brand new Obscura record in 2018!
Announcing yesterday that the band will be coming to an end of their Cosmogenesis conceptual run, Obscura will begin tracking of their final record in the series. A series of four chapters, the thematics represent the idea of life itself from the beginning of life, right up until the end.
Hitting the studio today October 2nd, Obscura will be recording their brand new record right now! Hard to believe given that the band’s follow for the previous record the astounding Akroasis, took five years to complete. It seems that the band don’t want to waste any time in making their follow up making the gap a mere two years between releases, which might be some band’s standard but for the likes of Obscura, the sheer technicality thats demanded from the band you could forgive them for taking a little longer perhaps than usual.
Working once more with producer V Santura, who has worked with the band since their beginnings. Klausenitzer assures us that it will be a very heavy record and in his opinion a very technical album and the most melodic album. I would imagine that we would be looking at something close to a March date? It could also be the end of their Relapse Records deal and perhaps the band might moving to something new. Either way, see for yourself in the bands saved ‘Facebook Live” feed from yesterday’s announcement. Also props to Klausenitzer for wearing a Rivers of Nihil T shirt! He knows what’s up!
