A lot of great news just came out of camp Obscura! Back in October, they announced that they were tracking an all new album. Now, they’ve officially finished that all new album set to be titled “Diluvium”. You can also expect a release this Summer on July 13th through Relapse Records. Pre-orders are now available to those who CLICK HERE!
In support the band just launched an all new single by the name of “Ethereal Skies”! You can give a listen below.
The band’s vocalist/guitarist Steffen Kummerer had the following to say of this.
“‘Ethereal Skies‘ marks a special collaboration with Obscura‘s former drummer, cellist and founding member Jonas Baumartl who performed on the band’s demos, ‘Illegimitation‘, our debut album, ‘Retribution‘ and the pre-production for ‘Cosmogenesis‘. While Jonas never got the attention he deserved and has been an important member of the band it felt like a closing chapter both of us started years ago.
Alongside Jonas, the second guest on the album is Linus Klausenitzer‘s father, Prof. Ulf Klausenitzer who worked as a violinist and conductor with Arvo Pärt, Karl-Heinz Stockhausen, Mikis Theodorakis, Daniel Barenboim, Christian Thielemann, Pierre Boulez and many more. ‘Diluvium‘ will be the first release where Linus and his father collaborate and therefore a unique cooperation. You hear both, Jonas Baumgartl and Prof. Ulf Klausenitzer participating on cello and violin in the middle section of ‘Ethereal Skies‘.”
