OBSCURA’s fifth studio album ‘Diluvium’ is due out July 13th on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages are available via Relapse.com and download/streaming below.
Last week, OBSCURA announced a North American headlining tour set to take place from mid September through early October. The band will be joined by Beyond Creation, Archspire, Inferi & Exist for what is sure to be THE most talked about progressive death metal tour of the year. The full list of tour dates will be announced shortly.
OBSCURA complete their long-running, four-album conceptual circle with the release of ‘Diluvium’ (defined as a great oceanic flood), their most evocative, diverse and vibrant release to date. Recorded with longtime producer V. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence) at Woodshed Studios in Landshut, Germany, ‘Diluvium’ is a stunning achievement for the illustrious quartet and a landmark release for progressive metal as a whole. Complete with all the band’s signature elements plus groundbreaking polyrhythms, dramatic songwriting, and jaw-dropping virtuosity, OBSCURA raise the bar once again with an album that will go down in the annals of metal history as one of the most astonishing performances the genre has to offer.
