  • Illegimitation CD
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Illegimitation is OBSCURA's first ever demo collection, featuring the band's earliest recordings and brand new cover songs. As one of the first bands in extreme metal, Obscura funded this release with the concept of crowd sourced capital.

    OBSCURA's very first record, 'Illegimitation' was tracked in 2003 with their long term producer V.Santura and shows the beginning of this band back in 2002. Additionally there are unreleased recordings done in 2006 after the band's first European tour with Suffocation where you'll find songs such as 'Incarnated' in it's original form. To round out this release the band recorded three songs that influenced this band since the beginning up to the present - Death - Flesh and the Power it holds, Atheist - Piece of Time and Cynic - How Could I?.
