A crown, created with divine will
An infinite light of the creator

Through wisdom, from nothingness, a first revelation
An unbound flash widespread, sheer cataclysm

A vessel, made of comprehension
To give it grasp, of breadth and depth

Ten Sepiroth – A central state of unity
Ten Sepiroth – Emanations pure creation

Upholding the heavens, saturating the stars
In splendor bright glory, deliverance ascends
Sustaining the cosmos, a maelstrom of spirits
In newborn distress, emblazed sparkling spheres

Loving grace of inspiring vision
Withhold this victory in mere sincerity
To envision the concentric circles
Conscious alone the heretic

Through wisdom, from nothingness, a first revelation
An unbound flash widespread, sheer cataclysm
Ten Sepiroth – A central state of unity
Ten Sepiroth – Emanations pure creation

Obscura | Akroasis [2016]

Five years since the release of the universally-acclaimed Omnivium, Germany’s progressive metal masters OBSCURA are poised to return with their strongest and most dynamic release to date. The aptly-named Akroasis (Greek for “hearing” or “listening“) draws on all the various elements of OBSCURA‘s signature sound and combines those qualities into a mind-blowing and cohesive whole.

Produced by the band and V. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence), Akroasis is eight songs diverse enough to serve as a near-comprehensive introduction to all of extreme metal. Packed to the gills with virtuosic musicianship, compelling themes, and airtight songwriting, OBSCURA will undoubtedly breathe new life into death metal, progressive metal and beyond.

Akroasis CD

1. Sermon of the Seven Suns
2. The Monist
3. Akroasis
4. Ten Sepiroth
5. Ode to the Sun
6. Fractal Dimension
7. Perpetual Infinity
8. Weltseele
9. On the Origin of Primal Expression (bonus track)


Worldwide Release: 5th of February 2016

“With „Akroasis“, Obscura produced their grand opus featuring eight songs of fluent arrangements, odd time rhythm patterns and the most high end production in the history of this band. Without question “Akroasis” became the heaviest complex record we made up to this day. We cannot wait to perform live again and bring this challenging music on stage around the globe.”
Steffen Kummerer
