Band Name Obscura (GER-1). Дата релиза 29 Март 2011. Лейблы Relapse Records. Obscura pull this off PERFECTLY by jumping into a gothic-sounding melodic death part that only further sucks you into the 55 minute tech death ecstasy known as Omnivium. There is also a part of the song that has acoustic background guitars that are led by the sweet smooth sound of Jeroen’s fretless bass. The musician that improved the most during the writing process of this album would definitely be the vocalist. His sandpaper-rough screams pierce the wind with the precision of a lazar.
Obscura is a German technical death metal band from Landshut, founded by guitarist and vocalist Steffen Kummerer in 2002. The current line-up includes Kummerer, guitarist Rafael Trujillo, bassist Linus Klausenitzer and drummer Sebastian Lanser. The band have released five studio albums, a compilation album and five music videos since its formation. Their latest album Diluvium was released on 13 July 2018 via Relapse Records.
Back during Retribution and even on Cosmogenesis, Obscura’s bass heavy sound and progressive songwriting had a very unique feeling to them, and in a sense still do. However, today we have Omnivium and Obscura seems to have done little more than slowly refine their songwriting into a more and more proficient level of odd but well-sculpted technical death metal.
Obscura's 2011 release "Omnivium" is without a doubt one of the best releases from the band and truly showcases why this band, its members, and releases have become staples of the technical death metal world. Obscura is no stranger to technicality as they've showed with their past releases (especially on their 2009 release Cosmogenesis) but they really went for more than sheer technicality with Omnivium. Obscura's lineup for this album is beyond perfect and every single one of the members showcases their abilities perfectly and beautifully throughout the entirety of the album.
