Obscura have completed working on their new album and they are aiming for a Summer 2018 release via Relapse. Diluvium is a follow-up to 2016’s Akróasis and will be the group’s overall fifth studio effort. The technical death metallers teamed up with longtime producer V. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence) to record the album at Woodshed Studios in Landshut, Germany. The LP will feature a handful of special guests including bringing founding member Jonas Baumgartl in to contribute to recording cello on the record.
“Our new album ‘Diluvium’ finally marks the end of Obscura’s four album circle we started around ten years ago when we wrote ‘Cosmogenesis’, followed by ‘Omnivium’ and ‘Akroasis’ in recent years. With Rafael Trujillo, Linus Klausenitzer, Sebastian Lanser and myself participating as equal songwriting contributors, the record turned out diverse, progressive and colorful in every possible way. We can’t wait to share the final piece of this long running four-album-concept with you and look forward to the album release along with extensive touring throughout 2018.”
