German death metallers OBSCENITY will release their eigth studio album, “Atrophied In Anguish” on September 14 as a digipak and as a digital download via Apostasy Records. 10 relentless tracks will bludgeon you back into the early ’90s. The CD was again recorded at Soundlodge Studio in Rhauderfehn with producer Jörg Uken.
Commented the band: “‘Atrophied In Anguish’ is the quintessence of diverse epoches of OBSCENITY. We combined typical ’90s melodic parts and leads with modern blastparts. The new album is a mixture of ‘The 3rd Chapter’ and ‘Cold Blooded Murder’ with a giant sound that goes without Lego-Trigger and other technical stuff.”
The cover artwork for “Atrophied in Anguish” was created by Remy of Headsplit Design (ARCH ENEMY, PSYCROPTIC, WHITECHAPEL) and can be seen below.
