Obscura have signed to Nuclear Blast. The German progressive/ technical death metal outfit have unleashed five full length albums, including their latest effort, 2018’s Diluvium. And now, they are ready for a new chapter in their career. 

Guitarist/vocalist Steffen Kummerer commented:

“Partnering with the world’s biggest independent metal label feels like the start of a new chapter for Obscura and we are very much looking forward to a great collaboration and to releasing our forthcoming sixth studio album with a great team at our side.”

Nuclear Blast’s Jaap Wagemaker added:

“As fans ourselves at Nuclear Blast, we have long admired the artistry of German progressive death metal masters Obscura. We were blown away by their musical 4-album-cycle that started with Cosmogenesis and ended with Diluvium complete with all the band’s signature elements plus groundbreaking polyrhythms, dramatic songwriting, and jaw-dropping virtuosity! We knew that Obscura has the potential to become one of the leading forces in progressive death metal worldwide, so when the opportunity came to work with them, there was no room for second thoughts. We at Nuclear Blast are very curious to see where Obscura’s musical journey beyond Diluvium will bring them. If you are a fan of progressive metal, you should definitely check out this band!”

The group recently premiered a 4k music video for the song “Emergent Evolution” and you can check it out below:
