The wildly-progressive German metal quartet Obscura has announced their first ever demo collection, entitled “Illegimitation” and set to be released independently by the band this March. The collection will include ten never-before-heard tracks, including the band’s earliest recordings from 2003, unreleased songs from the “Cosmogenesis” sessions of 2006, and brand new cover songs with the newest line-up from 2011.
Sticking to their reputation of being one of the genre’s most forward-thinking bands, Obscura have decided to release a special, limited-time pre-order for “Illegimitation” through Kickstarter.com. The album’s tracklisting, cover art, and numerous, unique packages are available directly from the band now at this location.
Obscura’s Steffen Kummerer commented on the release; “This will be a independent release so we can give our fans the opportunity to participate in the project and offer special packages such as a livelong free entry to all Obscura shows, limited edition items, face to face lessons with our members, and tour used gear from the band!”
