German progressive death metal titans OBSCURA have announced a special 10th-anniversary show this December in Landshut, Germany. This one-night-only event will take place on December 15th at Alte Kaserne with special guests DARK FORTRESS, HOKUM and ILLEGIMITATION, an incarnation of the band’s original lineup, who will play their first demo in its entirety.
Commented OBSCURA guitarist/vocalist Steffen Kummerer: “After years of recording, touring and building up a loyal fanbase around the world we invite all of our friends and fans to our 10-year-anniversary show in Landshut, Germany. We celebrate the end of the ‘Omnivium’ world tour in the same city where it started early 2011.
“To make this event something special, we reformed the original lineup of OBSCURA for a short set, playing the full ‘Illegimitation’ demo as a whole.
“While DARK FORTRESS and HOKUM share a long history of links with OBSCURA, it seems almost self-evident to have both booked for ’10 Years Obscura – A Decade Of Progressive Death Metal’. Let’s make this a great evening for everyone.”
“Omnivium” sold around 2,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 11 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
