SONG PREMIERE: Obscura – “Ethereal Skies”
Obscura have premiered their new song recently. You can check out the stream for their song “Ethereal Skies” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new album Diluvium which is due out on July 13th via Relapse Records.
Vocalist/guitarist Steffen Kummerer commented:
‘Ethereal Skies‘ marks a special collaboration with Obscura‘s former drummer, cellist and founding member Jonas Baumartl who performed on the band’s demos, ‘Illegimitation‘, our debut album, ‘Retribution‘ and the pre-production for ‘Cosmogenesis‘. While Jonas never got the attention he deserved and has been an important member of the band it felt like a closing chapter both of us started years ago.
Alongside Jonas, the second guest on the album is Linus Klausenitzer‘s father, Prof. Ulf Klausenitzer who worked as a violinist and conductor with Arvo Pärt, Karl-Heinz Stockhausen, Mikis Theodorakis, Daniel Barenboim, Christian Thielemann, Pierre Boulez and many more. ‘Diluvium‘ will be the first release where Linus and his father collaborate and therefore a unique cooperation. You hear both, Jonas Baumgartl and Prof. Ulf Klausenitzer participating on cello and violin in the middle section of ‘Ethereal Skies‘.
