Obscenity – German death metal veterans sign to Kolony Records; 9th full-length album “Retaliation” due in Spring 2016

Obscenity logo 192German death metal veterans, Obscenity (from Oldendburg, Lower Saxony), signed a deal with Kolony Records for the release of their 9th full-length album, Retaliation.

Obscenity was formed as a five-piece in 1989 with the intention of playing brutal death metal, and the band’s debut album, Suffocated Truth, was released in 1992. It was only in 1996, with the release of the band’s third album, The 3rd Chapter, that Obscenity developed their current well known style, offering direct bludgeoning death metal riffs, with a Floridian approach to their aural carnage.

The band has taken part in several European metal festivals during the years, such as Fuck The Commerce Festival, No Mercy Festival, With Full Force Open Air and Wacken Open Air, to name a few, and supported Six Feet Under on their Summer tour in 2003.

After splitting up in 2009, the band was reformed with a new lineup by guitarist Hendrik Bruns the following year, and came out with their its eighth full-length, Atrophied in Anguish, in 2012.

A few years later, Tobias Müller joined the band as the new vocalist and 10 new tracks were composed: the upcoming output is named Retaliation, and it will be released in Spring 2016.
