Obscura | album update, Photo & Video footage

Obscura BandObscura is working hard on the follow up to 2011’s “Omnivium”. The band is already in pre-production process and starts tracking demos for the new record. We are all pleased with the new material which pairs songwriting, technicality and arrangments of the last albums with creative input of Linus Klausenitzer, Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger and Sebastian Lanser, while keeping our trademark prog riffing across fusion and death metal that makes Obscura sound unique.

While working on Obscura’s fourth, yet untitled, record we just initiated an interactive project we need your help for. We are looking for all kinds of photos, videos, graphics, flyers and tour posters since the very beginning in 2002. If you have any footage you would like to share and be part of the band’s project, please get in touch via contact@realmofobscura.com.

Especially videos of our shows in Japan, South East Asia, Mexico, Europe and North America would be appreciated. If you made pictures with the band members after a concert or just made a few shots during a show, feel free to send an email to the band. Everyone contributing will be mentioned in the final credits.

Sincerely,

Steffen Kummerer

NEW Guitarist | Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger

Tom_Geldschlaeger_1“It gives me great pleasure to anounce that I’ve joined Obscura as their new guitar-player. Having already worked with Linus and past members Christian and Hannes in recent projects and having followed the band’s career closely since their very first tour, the transition felt completely natural. Taking over Christians duties in the band makes me feel equal parts proud and at ease, since we’ve known and respected each other for many years. I’m very much looking forward to touring the world with my fantastic new band-mates, entering the studio for a new record VERY soon and also being able to bring my playing on both fretted and fretless guitars to a wider audience through this exciting new opportunity.” – Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger


“Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger and Sebastian Lanser will add some new and fresh vibes to Obscura’s trademark sound. Adding fretless guitars and more fusion drumming will definitely influence our songwriting. I am looking forward desperately to work with this new talented group of musicians on the fourth record. At the moment we are in the middle of writing new material, rearranging previously written ideas and start preparing the upcoming liveshows in 2015. First festivals will be announced soon, worldwide touring activities follow the album release. With a new record, intense performances and a full live production we want to meet our fans & friends around the globe!” – Steffen Kummerer
