German progressive/technical death metallers Obscura will release a demo compilation, of the band's early recordings and brand-new cover songs, in March next year, entitled Illegimitation.

Cover artwork and tracklist can be seen after the jump.

Guitarist/Vocalist Steffen Kummerer comments: "After the immense feedback for the re-release of our debut album Retribution and 10.000 sold copies of that record, fans were asking for our early recordings and the material we wrote before hooking up with Relapse Records. Our very first record, Illegimitation was tracked in 2003 with our long term producer V. Santura and shows the beginning of this band back in 2002. Additionally, we will provide you with unreleased recordings done in 2006 after our first European tour with Suffocation where you'll find songs such as "Incarnated" in it's original form. To round out this release we will head into the studio and record three songs that influenced this band since the beginning up to the present - Death's "Flesh And The Power It Holds", Atheist's "Piece Of Time" and Cynic's "How Could I?".

I am glad to show every fan that is interested in our roots where we come from and how things developed within the first ten years of Obscura. This is a release directly from the band and for our die-hard fans and friends. The CD edition will contain a full-color 20 page booklet with the complete history of the band, never-before-seen photos out of our own archives and recordings of the three known lineups. The LP edition will be pressed on colored vinyl in an extremely limited quantity and with a gatefold cover. Once again, the talented Orion Landau will provide us with his unique artworks to make this another special release in our history.

Additionally, this will be a independent release so we can give our fans the opportunity to participate in the project and offer special packages such as a livelong free entry to all Obscura shows, limited edition items, face to face lessons with our members, and tour-used gear from the band!"

Agree on the cover. I pledged my donation

Wow, covering Death, Atheist, and Cynic... that seems pretty much pointless.
Think the demo tracks might be cool, though.
And the artwork looks very nice.
