Vocalist / Guitarist Steffen Kummerer commented on the run:
“Obscura finally return to North America with an extended headlining tour supporting our brand new record “Diluvium” which marks the end of a ten year, four album cycle. With Beyond Creation, Archspire, Inferi and Exist we return to the United States and Canada with the most extreme tour of the year. We can’t wait to hit the road again and present you songs off all four records “Cosmogenesis”, “Omnivium”, “Akroasis” and “Diluvium”.

Recorded with longtime producer V. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence) at Woodshed Studios in Landshut, Germany, Diluvium is a stunning achievement for the illustrious quartet and a landmark release for progressive metal as a whole. Complete with all the band’s signature elements plus groundbreaking polyrhythms, dramatic songwriting, and jaw-dropping virtuosity, OBSCURA raise the bar once again with an album that will go down in the annals of metal history as one of the most astonishing performances the genre has to offer.
