OBSCURA will release their new album, “A Valediction”, on November 19 via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2018’s “Diluvium” sees the band heralding a new era of extreme metal as it combines virtuosic songwriting with surprisingly catchy melodies and stunning craftsmanship.
“A Valediction” was mixed and mastered by award-winning producer Fredrik Nordström in Gothenburg, Sweden and thematically deals with final farewells.
OBSCURA mastermind and founder Steffen Kummerer states: “‘A Valediction’ unfolds OBSCURA in its purest form and showcases the band at new heights and offers immediacy with a rather personal touch. We cannot wait to perform this album on stage and celebrate each and every song live with our loyal fans around the globe. This record goes to eleven, so watch out for the first single dropping in July and worldwide tour dates to be announced soon.”
The album, graced by a cover artwork painted by internationally renowned artist Eliran Kantor, will consist of 11 new studio tracks.
