Earlier this year German progressive death metal band Obscura lost drummer Hannes Grossman and guitarist Christian Muenzer due to musical difference and, in the case of Muenzer, a medical condition that could leave him without the ability to play. The band had announced that they would be holding auditions in August and September but those have now come to a close. Last week the band shared on their Facebook page the following status update:
The names of the new drummer and guitarist have not been disclosed, but it’s good to know that the band now has a full lineup again. The band will be entering the studio later this year to record the follow-up to 2011’s Omnivium, which is part of a four album concept album that began with Cosmogenesis in 2009.
