Obscura (3)

The technical German death metal band Obscura was founded in 2002 by guitarist/vocalist Steffen Kummerer and drummer Jonas Baumgartl. The band caused a stir when they - out of nowhere - toured as support for Suffocation on their European tour in 2006 and when they independently released their debut album ‘Retribution’ that same year. After several lineup changes mastermind Steffen Kummerer got backed up by a new team of virtuoso musicians. Late 2007 Obscura announced drummer Hannes Grossmann (ex-Necrophagist) and fretless bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling (ex-Pestilence) as new permanent members. Early 2008 the new lineup was completed by Christian Muenzner (ex-Necrophagist) as permanent guitarist. Together they 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.
