Biography

The progressive German death metal band Obscura was founded in 2002 by guitarist/vocalist Steffen Kummerer and drummer Jonas Baumgartl. The band caused a stir when they - out of nowhere - toured as support for Suffocation on their European tour in 2006 and when they independently released their debut album 'Retribution' that same year.

After several lineup changes, Kummerer ... Read more in Amazon's Obscura Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Before Germanys OBSCURA became one of the trailblazers in the international technical metal explosion, they specialized in metal of a more brutal sort. Their debut Retribution is a beastly album blending the savagery of New York death metal with the fleet-fingered fretting of forerunners Death and Gorguts. Now repackaged, remastered, and featuring three bonus tracks, Retribution documents the first steps in the journey of one of metals most crucial new bands.

Wow, I can't believe I only recently stumbled on these guys! My first purchase was Omnivium and I loved it. I then came upon Retribution, am currently half-way through it and it's F***ing AWESOME! Reminds me a little of Morbid Angel Altars of Madness (Lords of fevers and Plagues) WHICH IS KILLER. This album is providing me with that awesome sound that Morbid Angel touched on a little but moved on. It's like a ritual set to music. Hope they tour in Los Angeles! I would say Obscura's RETRIBUTION is a MUST HAVE for any Death/Black metal fan. Just do yourself the favor and get it, you will not be disappointed!

I must admit I was late to Obscura and only got on board with "Cosmogenesis", but discovering the re-release of "Retribution" has been a complete joy. "Retribution" has a different sound from "Cosmogenesis" and is a throwback to the classic death metal era. In fact, the album includes covers from Suffocation, Death and Morbid Angel, all performed extremely well, and the band is named after the Gorguts masterpiece, "Obscura". "Retribution" has a complex death metal sound, with awesome compositions and excellent musicianship with strong links it to Death, Gorguts, Morbid Angel, etc. I strongly recommend to any fan of death metal. It's hard to know who Obscura are; the "Cosmogenesis" line-up looks and sounds like a new band. Their first album is in the flavor of bands like Death; their second album is along the lines of Spawn of Possession. I now have both albums; they are different but equally amazing and I can't wait to see where Obscura goes form here.

To start off, this album is a re-release (reissue) The origanal album was recorded in 2004, then released in 2006. I think the whole world slept on this album!
Once Obscura made some noise with thier second release "cosmogenesis" Relaps records decided to re-release thier debut album "retribution" Let me tell you friends, This album is one of the best albums I've heard in a long time. Its still early in the year, but, I think it could be the best Metal (Death Metal) album of the year. This album is more brutal than thier second offering "cosmogenesis"
Each song is diffrent, fresh, and new. Buy this album!

What an amazing group of musicians Obscura are. This album use to be what you call "obscure" hahah, until they re-released it and now people are taking notice to it. How can you forget this album. Its simply amazing, from the face melting riffs to the brutal vocals which remind me of old school death metal. The riffs sound very early death metal influenced mixed with some thrash. Not to mention, it includes three covers of influential death metal bands Death, Suffocation and Morbid Angel. If you buy this expecting "Cosmogenesis",you might wanna be think again. Buy this album with an open mind and I believe you'll love it. This is modern metal at its best. I can only hope these guys stay around a LONG, LONG time.

9.5/10
