OBSCURA Share “Ten Sepiroth” Music Video via Vevo, Announce European Tour Dates


A new music video from German tech-death force OBSCURA has just premiered via Youtube/Vevo. “Ten Sepiroth,” taken from the band’s recent full-length Akroasis, can be watched at this location.

In addition to their series of festival appearances this coming summer (including Brutal Assault, Tuska Open Air, and more), German tech-death visionaries OBSCURA have also announced a new headlining European tour this October! They’ll be laying waste to Western and Eastern Europe alongside a stellar lineup of Revocation, Beyond Creation, and Rivers of Nihil. View a full itinerary of dates below.

Produced by the band and V. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence), OBSCURA‘s newest album Akróasis (released this past February via Relapse) is eight songs diverse enough to serve as a near-comprehensive introduction to all of extreme metal. Packed to the gills with virtuosic musicianship, compelling themes, and airtight songwriting, Akróasis has breathed new life into death metal, progressive metal and beyond. Akróasis is out now worldwide via Relapse Records on CD, 2xLP and Digital – physical orders are available HERE and digital orders can be placed HERE.

Founded in 2002 by guitarist/vocalist Steffen Kummerer, German progressive death metal band OBSCURA caused a stir when they – out of nowhere – toured as support for the legendary Suffocation on the band’s European tour in 2006 and independently released their debut album Retribution that same year. From its very beginnings, the band (named after Gorguts’ inimitable 1993 full-length) demonstrated an uncanny ability for blending different forms of technical, cerebral metal into a coherent synthesis of death, thrash and black metal merged with progressive elements.
