OBSCURA | EMP exclusive Shirt & Preorder Bundle

Deutschlands Progressive Death Metal-Meister Obscura vervollständigen ihren lang andauernden, vier Alben umfassenden konzeptuellen Zirkel mit der Veröffentlichung von “Diluvium“, ihrer bisher eindrucksvollsten, vielseitigsten und lebendigsten Veröffentlichung. Mit „Diluvium“ liefern Obscura den vierten und letzten Teil ihres Langzeitkonzepts ab, welches 2009 mit ihrem zweiten Studioalbum „Cosmogenesis“ losgetreten wurde. Die elf neuen Tracks beinhalten abermals ein Freudenfest für alle Prog-Fetischisten und Anhänger obskurer Death Metal-Scheiben der alten Schule. Dabei sind Obscura dem Erbe von Chuck Schuldiner und Death näher denn je und […]
