“Devoured Usurper” might just be the heaviest, grindiest song Obscura have dropped yet. Their new album, A Valediction, is set to be released November 19 via Nuclear Blast Records. “Devoured Usurper” is a righteous celebration of darkness, brutality, and extreme violence.
Steffen Kummerer states:
“Merciless, moldered and putrid alike – “Devoured Usurper” showcases a crude abrasive side to shake some bodies at live shows in the near future. With utter brutality, the song depaints an inevitable reckoning and underlines the death metal roots of Obscura…And once again the band worked with Mirko Witzki on the video, who also produced “Solaris”, “A Valediction” and previous videos for Obscura.
We recorded the music video at famous Stress Studio in Graz, Austria, where also drums for the new album have been tracked. We prepare our live shows and assemble parts of our production in this unique environment before we embark on upcoming tours.”
