||Obscura New Album Title And Guest Appearances Revealed
German death metallers Obscura have set "Cosmogenesis" as the title of its upcoming album. The group recently signed with Relapse Records and has completed the recordings for its second full-length album, to be released in early 2009. "Cosmogenesis" features guest appearances from Ron Jarzombek (Watchtower, Spastic INK, Blotted Science) and Tymon Kruidenier (Cynic, Exivious). "This new album sounds very intense and brutal", the band says in a statement. Obscura will headline the Munich Deathfest on November 8 and is preparing for more touring in the New Year.
Obscura was founded in 2002 by guitarist/vocalist Steffen Kummerer. After several lineup changes mastermind Kummerer got backed up by a new team of virtuoso musicians. Late 2007 Obscura announced drummer Hannes Grossmann (ex-Necrophagist) and fretless bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling (ex-Pestilence) as new permanent members. Early 2008 the new lineup was completed by Christian Muenzner (ex-Necrophagist) as permanent guitarist.
