Obscura  - Diluvium album flac

Germany’s progressive death metal masters OBSCURA complete their long-running, four-album conceptual circle with the release of Diluvium (defined as a great oceanic flood), their most evocative.

Simply speaking, ‘Diluvium’ is symbolic of Obscura setting new standards for progressive music once again. The album also maintains its own individuality from rest of the discography. Kudos to another great album!

Diluvium is the fifth studio album by German technical death metal band Obscura, released on 13 July 2018 via Relapse. The album is the first to feature guitarist Rafael Trujillo, who replaced Tom Geldschläger in 2015. Diluvium is also marked as the last album of the band's four-album concept series, along with Cosmogenesis (2009), Omnivium (2011) and Akróasis (2016). All lyrics written by Steffen Kummerer. Steffen Kummerer – vocals, guitars.

Now in 2018, OBSCURA complete their long-running, four-album conceptual circle with the release of Diluvium (defined as a great oceanic flood), their most evocative, diverse and vibrant release to date. Recorded with longtime producer V. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence) at Woodshed Studios in Landshu.

Is Diluvium the crescendo of the story? Official album art. In a saturated genre with songs running at maximum tilt with each new band trying to out-note each other, Obscura assumes a parental role, showing aspiring bands yet again, that at the end of the day, catchy sections and memorable choruses is what makes listeners come back for multiple spins. Make no mistake, Obscura is still a technical death metal band, and bare their musical fangs on plenty of occasions throughout Diluvium. Yet, it is their measured approach and restraint that truly makes Diluvium a special record worth every inch it occupies on your shelf! Songwriting and Lyrics: 9/10.

It’s as much as a title of status as it is a band name. While the hype train has been running full steam and full speed for the better part of twelve years the band has certainly earned its place within death metal lore. The only question is whether the band’s hype train will stop to let listeners board, or pass the platform completel. eaving fans stranded. Whether or not you’ve been convinced of Obscura’s musical majesty or not, it’s almost undeniably easy to drop a reference to Cosmogenesis or Akróasis when discussing the realms of technically adverse, progressive death metal.

While there’s no mistaking Obscura for anything other than they have become-a techy, and occasionally proggy, death metal band-Diluvium is a significantly more focused and tighter album than its predecessors. The band wastes no space, writing tight songs that max out at just past six minutes. So while it took almost a decade to arrive, I’m thrilled to see Obscura make an album as good as Diluvium.

As the final piece to a massive four-album concept, Diluvium – which refers to an oceanic flood – bursts out like air from the lungs of someone breaking the surface after panicky underwater submergence. Over the next 10 tracks, Diluvium hardly lets up, but never devolves into a rudimental display.

Germany’s progressive death metal masters OBSCURA complete their long-running, four-album conceptual circle with the release of Diluvium (defined as a great oceanic flood), their most evocative, diverse and vibrant release to date. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence) at Woodshed Studios in Landshut, Germany, Diluvium is a stunning achievement for the illustrious quartet and a landmark release for progressive metal as a whole.
