OBSCURA Finishes Writing New Album


OBSCURA has finished writing for their sixth studio album, which is due next year on Nuclear Blast.

Band says in a statement: “Today, we’re excited to announce that the songwriting for the upcoming album is finished and we’ll enter the studio very soon. We tapped famous award-winning producer Fredrik Nordström for the upcoming full-length album and booked famous Studio Fredman, located in Gothenburg, Sweden.

“The sixth album of OBSCURA is scheduled for a 2021 worldwide release via Nuclear Blast. “

Frontman Steffen Kummerer states: “As of now, songwriting duties for the new, yet untitled album, have been finished. We picked the most promising compositions out of more than twenty pieces written during the last months and we can’t wait to record our sixth studio effort, starting in December.

“While the new album contains more guitar solos than any of our records before, all compositions are eagerly waiting to be performed live on stage and celebrated worldwide with our fans. As a collective, we are enthusiastic about the diverse, progressive and heavy songs to be released in 2021 through Nuclear Blast Records.”

OBSCURA‘s latest studio album, Diluvium, was released in 2018 via Relapse Records.
