A brand new guitar playthrough video of Rafael Trujillo for the song “Perpetual Infinity” from progressive metal masters OBSCURA can be streamed below. The track is taken from the band’s new album, “Akróasis” (Greek for “hearing” or “listening”), which was released on February 5 2016 via Relapse Records. The album was made available in CD, 2xLP and as a digital download.
„I’m very happy to finally show you my next playthrough video from Obscura’s song „Perpetual Infinity“. Before I joined the band I was asked to write some solos over already existing Obscura songs during the audition. I hope you like it!“– Rafael Trujillo

Produced by the band and V. Santura (TRIPTYKON, PESTILENCE), “Akróasis” is eight songs diverse enough to serve as a near-comprehensive introduction to all of extreme metal. Packed to the gills with virtuosic musicianship, compelling themes, and airtight songwriting, “Akróasis” will undoubtedly breathe new life into death metal, progressive metal and beyond.
Founded in 2002 by Kummerer, OBSCURA caused a stir when it toured as support for the legendary SUFFOCATION on the band’s European tour in 2006 and independently released its debut album, “Retribution”, that same year. From its very beginnings, the band (named after GORGUTS‘ inimitable 1993 full-length) demonstrated an uncanny ability for blending different forms of technical, cerebral metal into a coherent synthesis of death, thrash and black metal merged with progressive elements.
