Obscura will release their new album A Valediction on November 19 and is now streaming the debut single "Solaris". The album was recorded at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström (At The Gates, The Crown, etc.) and features artwork by artist Eliran Kantor (Hate Eternal, Bloodbath, Testament, etc.).
A Valediction will be the Obscura's first album to feature their new-meets-old lineup of guitarist and vocalist Steffen Kummerer, former members now rejoined guitarist Christian Münzner and bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling, and new drummer David Diepold (Cognizance).
"'Solaris' turned out to become one of the band’s shortest and utmost direct compositions featuring all trademarks lots of attitudes and a melodic approach," said Kummerer. "Flattering guitar work pushing drums and swinging bass lines combined with a relentless vocal performance and ultrasonic leads became easily a highlight of A Valediction."
