Obscura

An extremely technical death metal band from Munich, Germany, Obscura were founded in 2002 by vocalist/guitarist Steffen Kummerer, who purportedly took the name from a 1998 album by Canada's influential Gorguts -- one of his inspirational touchstones, along with Cynic, Pestilence, Morbid Angel, and others. Kummerer spent the ensuing years composing the songs that would comprise Obscura's 2006 debut album, Retribution, bypassing the traditional extreme metal process of distributing demos and performing in clubs along the way. Even his supporting cast during the album sessions -- guitarist Markus Lempsch, bassist Jonas Fischer, and drummer Jonas Baumgartl -- were merely hired guns who would be subsequently dispensed with after its independent release to widespread rave reviews -- so raving, in fact, that Kummerer and his pet project quickly became the objects of a metal label bidding war before signing with the highly respected Relapse Records for the release of the Obscura's second album, Cosmogenesis. This too met with overwhelmingly positive response within the metal community, and benefited from a new lineup of virtuosos including guitarist Christian Münzner and drummer Hannes Grossman, formerly of respected German techno-deathsters Necrophagist, plus legendary Pestilence bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

I Love melodic death metal and I love technical death metal - cant believe this band has blended the two so seamlessly.
Anyone disrespectin g Obscura doesn't play an instrument or can't appreciate technically proficient music.
The track incarnated reminds me of a track you'd listen to in deaths human album...seri o u s l y a death fan would catch that in a second actually a lot of their songs are death influenced.. . .
techno-death s t e r s unite
Agree with fermented
You're an idiot man @ i collect

The track I'm listening to (centric flow) reminds me of newer Between the Buried and Me (except Obscura doesn't use clean vox) with maybe an In Flames influence for the music in the breakdown / near the end... Well, I like it very much. Probably gonna get this album.
great technical metal
sounded sick
Even if less melodic than Opeth or Dream Theater, there's still a good amount of melody flying around.
I went out and bought this cd after hearing just one song on Pandora. 'Incarnated' just might be one of the best tracks on the album.

It is very technical metal that works better than Opeth for some.
it's a lot like Opeth and Dream Theater put together but less melodic and more mathematical .
Wow. What fantastic composure, musicality is fantastic. if this is thier first album, i cannot imagine what a follow up will be
