Obscura Premiere New Song “Ethereal Skies”

Obscura have premiered a new song titled “Ethereal Skies,” via Loudwire. This track is from the band’s new album “Diluvium,” which will be released on July 13.

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‘.”
