Obscura  


Formed in 2002 by guitarist/vocalist Steffen Kummerer and presumably named after the classic Gorguts album, Obscura impressively debuted in 2006 with Retribution, a self-released effort that later won them a contract with Relapse Records. Though not quite as wacky as the Gorguts album, this is nevertheless highly-charged technical yet brutal thrash-tinged death metal with a fair degree of variation and excellent musicianship that contrasts nicely with the brutal riffing. Since the release of Retribution Kummerer has completely overhauled the lineup, bringing in two guys from another standout German tech death band (Necrophagist) as well as noted former Pestilence bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling.
