"Obscura was founded in 2002 by Steffen Kummerer. The band was named after the Gorguts album Obscura. They are signed to Relapse Records. Obscura continue to create their vision of the future of extreme metal - a symbiosis of death, thrash and black metal merged with progressive elements and technical as well as compositional demand."

The vocals are fairly clean, still Death Metal, but not like gravel-gargling Grindcore or the even more insane Pornogrind. (um, yes. This is a real thing. Maybe I will post some... someday.) Off on a tangent there, but anyway... Obscura is pretty awesome. What I really like is the "cosmic" feel to it and the amazing layered tracks without losing focus.

The Anticosmic Overload:


New album, Omnivium, out very soon!

Found your blog from a buddy. I never heard Obscura before, but they aren't that bad. Might listen some more.

I mostly rap, but every now and again, I get the urge to do something nice and metal on my bass guitar. I could use some more followers, and I'll update you if I launch anything heavy, if you're interested.

If not, just keep doing what you're doing. I love me some metal, so you can bet I'll be here for daily updates, as long as you keep cranking them out.

Much Love

They named a song after the Greek translation of the Bible?
