The wildly-progressive German metal quartet OBSCURA, has announced their first ever demo collection, featuring the band's earliest recordings and brand new cover songs. The money raised for this project will pay for the cost of manufacturing this monumental release!
The album cover, tracklist, and details from Guitarist / Vocalist Steffen Kummerer are included below:
"After the immense feedback for the re-release of our debut album 'Retribution' and 10.000 sold copies of that record, fans were asking for our early recordings and the material we wrote before hooking up with Relapse Records. Our very first record, 'Illegimitation' was tracked in 2003 with our long term producer V.Santura and shows the beginning of this band back in 2002. Additionally, we will provide you with unreleased recordings done in 2006 after our first European tour with Suffocation where you'll find songs such as 'Incarnated' in it's original form. To round out this release we will head into the studio and record 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?.
I am glad to show every fan that is interested in our roots where we come from and how things developed within the first ten years of Obscura. This is a release directly from the band and for our die-hard fans and friends. The CD edition will contain a full-color 20 page booklet with the complete history of the band, never-before-seen photos out of our own archives and recordings of the three known lineups. The LP edition will be pressed on colored vinyl in an extremely limited quantity and with a gatefold cover. Once again, the talented Orion Landau will provide us with his unique artworks to make this another special release in our history.
Additionally, this will be a independent release so we can give our fans the opportunity to participate in the project and offer special packages such as a livelong free entry to all Obscura shows, limited edition items, face to face lessons with our members, and tour-used gear from the band!”

S - XXL. Backers will be contacted upon completion of the project for their shirt size and shipping address.
Hey everyone, we apologize for the delay but the band is currently on a month long tour in Europe and will be a bit slow to respond to everyone's customer service issues. All of the items were packed and shipped by the band themselves so a few orders may have been a bit messed up. Please be patient and we promise everyone will be taken care of as soon as possible. The band will be back on April 8th but hope to answer all issues sooner.
We will be sending out the advanced download for "Crucified" at the end of each week to all of the current backers of the project.
When the project completes (after 60 days), all backers will be contacted for their shipping information. The cost of shipping is included in all pledges!
There will be two different shirts created for this project and the limited edition design will be a one-time pressing, only available during the Kickstarter pre-orders. The other shirt will be available on tour with the band and via their webstore after the project. We will be adding pictures of each design for everyone to see shortly!
Does the Free Guest List Spot for Life include just the headlining tours of Obscura or every tour Obscura participate in?
The liftetime guestlist spot will include ANY tour that Obscura are a part of, whether they are headlining or opening for a larger act.
The only exception may be large festivals such as Wacken Open Air, Maryland Deathfest, etc. however the band will do anything in their power to obtain tickets for a backer contributing at this level to gain entrance to the fests.
As long as there is a guest list for the band, the backer will be on it!
