On November 3, Rockfile conducted an interview with Hannes Grossmann, drummer of the extreme technical death metal band OBSCURA. You can now listen to the 21-minute chat using the SoundCloudplayer below.
OBSCURA will release its first-ever demo collection, entitled “Illegimitation”, independently in March 2012. The collection will contain ten never-before-heard tracks, including the band’s earliest recordings from 2003, unreleased songs from the “Cosmogenesis” sessions in 2006, and brand new cover songs featuring the band’s current lineup.
Sticking to its reputation of being one of the genre’s most forward-thinking bands, OBSCURA has decided to release a special, limited-time pre-order for “Illegimitation” through Kickstarter.com.
The album’s numerous, unique packages are available directly from the band now at this location.
Commented OBSCURA‘s Steffen Kummerer: “This will be a independent release so we can give our fans the opportunity to participate in the project and offer special packages such as a lifelong free entry to all OBSCURA shows, limited-edition items, face-to-face lessons with our members, and tour used gear from the band!”
