It has been five years since the release of OBSCURA’s universally acclaimed Omnivium album. Now the progressive metal masters return with their strongest and most dynamic release to date. The aptly named Akróasis (Greek for “hearing” or “listening”) draws on all the various elements of OBSCURA‘s signature sound and combines those qualities into a cohesive and mind-blowing whole. The band has just shared a new track, “Sermon Of The Seven Suns”.’
Produced by the band and V. Santura (Triptykon, Pestilence), Akróasis 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, Akróasis will undoubtedly breathe new life into death metal, progressive metal and beyond.
If you dig the Akróasis title track, “Sermon of the Seven Suns” will surely melt your face. “’Sermon of the Seven Suns,’ the opening track of our fourth album Akróasis, perfectly blends all sides of Obscura, past and present,” says Obscura frontman Steffen Kummerer
