about

Germany’s progressive death metal masters OBSCURA complete their long-running, four-album conceptual circle with the release of Diluvium (defined as a great oceanic flood), their most evocative, diverse and vibrant release to date. 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.

about

Obscura München, Germany

From its very beginnings in 2002, the German progressive death metal band OBSCURA (named after Gorguts' inimitable 1993 full- length) has demonstrated an uncanny ability for blending different forms of technical, cerebral metal into a coherent synthesis of death, thrash and black metal merged with progressive elements. ... more

Track Name: Clandestine Stars
Resplendence, as servants we are hidden in distress
In silence we glare, in light, ablaze
Embraced, aligned in pitch-black mass we rot
And drown into time and space

And we are crawling from abyss, In a sudden flash widespread
Through time and space, as a stream of grace

When we have fallen, down into the void
Esteem the fading, our inner mourning flame

In obedience, in damnation we are damned to obsess
In reticence we shine, in glitter, sparkling bright
Sustained, forgotten, as shivered souls we spoil
And drown into time and space

In a moment of disguise, we descry sombrous rebirth
In a stream of grace descend, as clandestine stars
When we have fallen, dawn beyond all grief
Withstand the burden, we promise our last farewell
Solo: L. Klausenitzer / R. Trujillo

Embraced, aligned in pitch-black mass widespread
Extolled our remains, as clandestine stars we rot
Track Name: Emergent Evolution
Annihilate, accelerate, surge into cold pristine state
Invisible radiation, everlasting desecration
Profane sun, pervading light, splendor burst to virgin dust
Revelation, restitution, a riven covenant

Arise nocturnal star, into the void of eternal light
From brume into renascence, emergent evolution
Perennial aeonic divine eclipse

Arise - light of shining bliss
Divine - night in cosmic abyss
Devastate, discreate, putrefied and liquefied
Separation, isolation, final dissolution
Celestial spheres, a pallid flame, repulsive procreation
Manifestation, adumbration, luminous in radiance

Arise celestial bliss, into the void of divine essence
As a swarm into renascence, emergent evolution
Concentric primordial subsistence reborn

Arise - light of shining bliss
Divine - night in cosmic abyss

Solo: S. Kummerer / R. Trujillo / S. Kummerer

Recreate, generate, turning into supreme black light
Ethereal abomination, artificial entity
Profane sun, pervading light, splendor burst to virgin dust
Revelation, restitution a riven covenant - arise
Track Name: Diluvium
When radiation fades and remnants dissipate
Sacrificed we reunite in obedience
Decayed and lapsed in entropy
Bewailed, intoned the last elegy

Elapsed this diminished last piece of time
Shattered, convulsed, distressed in clarity

Diluvium - a vortex of primordial black holes, unbound
Diluvium - a stream into nothingness, unleashed

Drowned evaporation, enduring lucent purity
Grand deprivation, eternal cosmic unity

When resplendence elapsed, and fragments abrogates
Consecrated we insist in allegiance
Constrained and deformed in ecstasy
Enrapt, entranced in parity

Bygone this languished finite state of mind
Battered, relinquished, distraught deformity

Solo: T. Trujillo
Track Name: Mortification of the Vulgar Sun
I overcome this world
Endowed with golden light
Obliterate and recreate

A serenade of life and death
Embraced in eternal night
Infinite and purified

A last gathering of time and space
In solitude, I drawn to stars
Dissolving in eclectic haze
In malice, I saturate in gloom

I overcome this world
Perished in perpetual bliss
Devastate and recreate

Solos: R. Trujillo

Beyond the veil, blessed initiate descent
In magnitude, splendor bright unscathed
Shattered in pieces, vanquished volition
Mortification of the vulgar sun
Track Name: Ethereal Skies
Cosmic havoc in oblivious embrace
To deport this alternation
Arcade of aeons, motion in time
Dissolves in absolution

Conflagration - back to primordial condition
Cosmogenesis - life and death

In ethereal skies, we transcend in eclectic divine
As a glimpse of light, forevermore
In wandering stars, we emerge from light to abyss
As abandoned gods, we redeem in purgatory

Deliverance, a slender form of desolation
In bareness, beyond profound abyss
Perception, a final glimpse of dignity
In radiation of the blackest light

Solo: R. Trujillo

Retrogression, in solitary meditation
In clarity, consigned to infinity
Perpetuity, a constant shattered past
In sempiternal neutrality
Track Name: Convergence
Consumed in a vortex, beheld the celestial wrath
With our spirits aligned, we immersed in evenfall
Engrossed in infinity, congealed in perpetual spleen
In consciousness remained, the universe’s final call

At the edge of time, a convergent entity

Erased in blackness, obtained eternal path
In our shivers sublime, we collapsed in crimson sprawl
Enthralled in sparkling loss, transcend in eternal gleam
Annihilation unbound, in maenadic velocity
Rise, convergent black star, revive from life into decay

Dissolve in cosmic seas, enthralled to strain the burden
As an anthem of life and death, as an epitaph of all light

Solo: R. Trujillo / S. Kummerer

Our last funeral, redeemed sustaining the vortex
Drowning down eclectic bliss, we remain relieved in deliverance
Track Name: Ekpyrosis
Forevermore, an eternal wave enfolds, ekpyrosis occur
Transits in fiery red, invoked flat fourth dimension
Extending to all sides, the equation of state

As branes, in true magnitude we collide in cosmos and light
Expanse, in matter and time, void dimension, eternal night

Into the absolute, as we blend into cosmic mist, conflagration behold
Reborn in shattered past, in the midst of erasing stars
At the world’s dawn, the eternal cosmic night

Solo: R. Trujillo

Forevermore, an eternal wave enfolds
Bleach into the absolute, spirit divine
In time and space aligned
In time and space, eternal night
Track Name: The Seventh Aeon
Foul and tainted, putrid in spite
Departed, serene, deceived in faith
Emanated and ruptured in creed
Condemned forever, captured in doom

Devoured in oblivion, redeemed in gloom
And abandon demise, I stare in eternal despair of yore

Perseverant and keen, I endure the curse
In boundless spirits, the faith of gods

Devoured in oblivion, redeemed in gloom
And abandon demise, I stare in eternal despair of yore
The seventh aeon elating, the bringer of light enfolding its vigor
In a halo of light, I bare as remaining grandeur once more

Solo: R. Trujillo / S. Kummerer

Shrouded in silence, unhallowed black sermon
Condemned forever, captured in doom

Devoured in oblivion, redeemed in gloom
And abandon demise, I stare in eternal despair of yore
The seventh aeon elating, the bringer of light enfolding its vigor
In a halo of light, I bare as remaining grandeur no more
Track Name: The Conjuration
The one who has fallen
Wrapped in nocturnal despise
Surrender of the cosmic lie

Conjuration, evoke above and below
Arcane, occult, clandestine stars witnessed

The one who has drowned
Enshrouded in splendor so bright
Inclination of the blackest light

Fragrance of the perished, redemption revealed
Slaver, strive, iniquitous life redeemed in wrath

Invocation, ascend to its source and
Crave, cure, purity, the surrender of cosmic lies

In revelation, fathomless glory
Sacrificed mortals, a scorned trinity

Solo: R. Trujillo / S. Kummerer
Track Name: An Epilogue to Infinity
I, I’m the bringer of light and glance into
Doom, resurrected in gloom
I enfold, as your destiny and blaze into
Fate, incarnated in grace into

A farewell to the stars, redeemer of the final abyss
A farewell to eternal spheres, deliverer of the solar eclipse

I, I’m the savior, liberator, destroyer
In eclectic sanctuary
I pass, within remnants of yore, neglect
A purified divine achieved

I, I’m the savior of light and glance into
Doom, I wander in gloom
And drown in ablaze of perpetual distress
Dissolving in aeons of perennial black mass
Chaos, distress, and wrath and death

Solo: R. Trujillo

Deliverance and Consciousness, aeonic destiny
Immanent and transcendent, where spirits reunite
A maelstrom of unity, eternal and divine
A farewell to infinity, each soul glorified
