Obscura live to ride another day.

Obscura live to ride another day.

Earlier this month Obscura revealed both drummer Hannes Grossman and guitarist Christian Muenzer had departed from the group, leaving fans wondering what that means for the group's follow up to their 2011 record Omnivium. The short answer is that the group will carry on with a new lineup. According to a post on their Facebook page, the group will be trying out new members in August and September. Frontman and guitarist Steffen Kummerer explains the process as such:

"Currently we are in the middle of the songwriting process for our new album. The yet finished material turns out to focus on the trademarks we established during the last 12 years. Technicality paired with stringent arrangements, progressive riffing across fusion and death metal that makes Obscura sound unique. We will enter the studio by the end of 2014. Since Christian Muenzner and Hannes Grossmann departed we recieved requests from all over the world. We invite the candidates that may fit and get in touch directly with each person. To both, Christian and Hannes; I wish them the best for their solo careers and new projects."
