Progressive death metal act Obscura has begun recording the follow-up album to their breakthrough release Cosmogenesis at Woodshed Studio in southern Germany. Engineer V. Santura (Triptykon, Dark Fortress) will helm the recording. An early 2011 release date is expected with additional album details to be announced soon.

Obscura founder Steffen Kummerer commented on the new album: "We are glad to work with our long-time friend V.Santura once again to record our new album. The new material feels broader in some way as everybody in this band brought many unique ideas to the songwriting and we were able to integrate different elements into our sound. More open chords, more acoustic guitars, more seven string shred-tunes. Remember: more is always more. We are excited to create another album of progressive death metal and to start touring through the whole world in early 2011."

Obscura's recording and touring line-up remains as Kummerer on guitar and vocals, Christian Muenzner on guitar, Jeroen Paul Thesseling on bass and Hannes Grossman on drums. The band will round out the Cosmogenesis touring cycle with a performance as part of the Mezcal Metal Festival in Mexico City, Mexico in September.

Some good news, i like their two releases to date, although i prefer vastly the "new" cover on Retribution.
