about

OBSCURA’s highly-anticipated new album Omnivium sees the critically-acclaimed quartet cementing their place amongst the all-time metal-elite. Omnivium finds the band pushing the progressive edges of the genre’s sounds to new heights while delivering the technical metal that has become their calling card. The band gracefully blends brutality and beauty with complex, commanding songs played at stunningly virtuosic levels. Tracks such as album opener “Septuagint”, “Vortex Omnivium”, “Euclidean Elements” and “Celestial Spheres” are expressive and elaborate, and exude class and the confidence of a band at the peak of their abilities. Ominivum very clearly raises the bar for extreme, technical metal and is OBSCURA’s finest moment to date.

about

Obscura München, Germany

Obscura caused a stir when they - out of nowhere - toured as support for Suffocation's 2006 European tour followed by their independently released their debut album 'Retribution' that same year. Together they create their vision of the future of extreme metal. A symbiosis of death, thrash and black metal merged with progressive elements and technical composition. ... more

Track Name: Septuagint
I assume a true above and below
One more and first of all
I endeavor the deadly uniformity
That erudition brought into this world

I doubt wherever the earth's gravity
That is boldly presumed to extend
Over the whole structure of the world
Effective beyond a certain radius

Aeon, uniformity, divine
This empty space extending on all sides
Where the suns of the suns are subordinated
I thought of a great manifold of different ones

Where double stars moving alternately
Round each other but not round a third one
A whole that does not tolerate a middle
As masses of light flow into each other

If this universe increased to its extremity
When the other side transists into a black hole
A downward spiral of the corporeal masses
our existence is complete in both directions

I assume a separation of powers that be
Of purely demonic divine chaos
I endeavor the deadly uniformity
That erudition brought into the world

When we can pass over into the other
A world, pure and silent through death
This empty space extending on all sides
A true above, a true below
Track Name: Vortex Omnivium
For the very reason a part gets the upper hand
The might within space represses the internal
So that they have become two worlds then
Divine determination, free, pure and unadulterated

Vortex Omnivium- Where consciousness is the end of all
Divine revelation, and words become flesh
Vortex Omnivium- When arousing transitory
Sentiments become pure anger and wrath

Our thoughts will come to rest only at the final unity
United life will follow separated subsistence
Within this whisper of life, within this sensible world
This substantive being will break the tie of eternal rest
Track Name: Ocean Gateways
I consider our Earth as a part of the lowest area
We live as we were at the bottom of the sea
Where nothing is pure and undespoiled
Where everything is eaten and eroded

Where the grips of externality is unable freely
To emerge beyond a certain space of this one
Where nothing is pure and undespoiled
Where everything is wet and salt

Where earth and spirit unite
An opposition to the visible
A call of the purified souls
Emerges beyond, breaks free

Deliverance - an acroamatic halo
Deprivation - in particular obedience
Eclipsed - shackled and torn apart
Emptiness - devoid of heart and soul
Track Name: Euclidean Elements
Our time will be devised as they will be
Taken from the present, above and below
When you become the salt in the wounds
Mankind will rise again - baptism by fire

An imagination along unrestricted bounds
A distant future, appearance of illusion
When you feel the merge within the wounds
Mankind will rise again - Baptism by fire

When we fall toward a new sun aeon
Nothing more than a mere underneath
When you see throughout the worlds
Within the suns - downward and dead

Between our visible world
At the place, highest of all
I will turn to my mind's eye
Where the blame lies with me

We are here among ourselves
With the sun and stars above us
An abyss within the depth
At a splendid place, above and below
Track Name: Prismal Dawn
Behind those halls yonder, above the caliginous enigma
Where soul and spirit unite, there lies buried everything I have
Where we left the quiet sanctuary that united us on this side
To be separated for aeons, enchained in eternity

I lost you when I am chased away yet again
Yet your feeble remnants adores them
I am torn away even from the area of ground that covers you
Which was the very last thing I had of you

I lost you when I am chased away yet again
Yet your mortal remains rest peacefully and purely

Whatever part of this earth will retain them
Passing the world beyond, I'll be with you

This is our heart, our mind, our conscience
Our soul no longer belongs to us
Returning home to eternal freedom
Begin a new course, ennoble our essence

In the latter we find one law and one purpose
A purpose that can not be from this world
Beyond abyss through which blackness shines in

Behind those halls, where soul and spirit unite
There lies buried everything I have in the Prismal Dawn
Track Name: Celestial Spheres
The inclination will become naught
When a justifiable longing is accorded to it
Within the magnitude of the object
For the gain of an everlasting truth

Amalgamation will be scorned by both
When there is a whisper of faith
Within the halls of eternity

For a wish of silence in the black eclipse
Light and vision, day and night, will break free

A night like day and a day like night embrace us all
Our wishes find their final resting place in us
A moonlit night touches our inner being
...And makes a shudder run through our flesh

A night like day and a day like night embrace us all
Our wishes find their final place

When our mind disappears into a sudden
Shuddering movement and leaves behind in his soul
A painful longing for its survival
Light and vision, day and night, will break free
Track Name: Velocity
Those who arise despite ourselves
Where the left hand path begins
A fragment is pushing through, enforces my memory
My mind has been swaying for some time

Your sign, suggesting a pale remembrance
Where everything finally disappears

This is the end, where everything finishes
What will be revealed in silence
This is the end, where each secret disappears
Fragrance of the dead, redemption of the weak

Between the worlds, where the one merge with the other through them
Where the growth of an external world amalgamate into a spirit truth
Where a transition occurs within death and salvation
You'll see the whole, the whole of the undivided one

At the stage where you'll lead delightful
The one that is fallen waits frightful
Track Name: A Transcendental Serenade
In deepest depths, at the dark side of a burning star
By the dully shining black sun - the dance of the dead
Track Name: Aevum
Where profound souls shy away from self fulfillment
We stroll in silence through this universe
Where abysmal pansophy wallows in deepness
To enjoy the bliss of a fractional existence

The holiest necessity of inner being is not a law for nature
In nature even divine necessity takes on the bleach animosity
To keep our inner being free of this contradiction
With the irresistible force fore of a terrible necessity once present

Those who are ashamed to start from the earth
To climb up from the creature mankind
To draw those thoughts that are beyond
Earth, fire, water, and air

Void Dimension - as man stands here on earth
Void Dimension - as flash of eternity

As man stands here on earth in this life
As flash of eternity that enlighten this gloominess
Portraying this progeny of their soul as enigma
Devoured by its own will, unbounded, inevitable

Wherever one thing reaches into the other
Neither of the others can leave
Each requires the other
