The original line-up was Jerry Birr on vocals, Phil Demmel and Troy Fua on guitars, Eddie Billy (brother of Testament’s Chuck Billy) on bass, and Perry Strickland on drums. This line-up appeared on the ’86 Eastern Front: Live at Ruthie’s Inn 2LP compilation with the song “Gutterslut”...

OBSCURA – Begin Recording New Album

German progressive/technical death metal band OBSCURA have officially commenced recording for their next album and follow-up to 2018’s Diluvium.

Drum tracking has been taking place at S.T.R.E.S.S. Studio in Graz, Austria and production is expected to continue at Studio Fredman in Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström.

OBSCURA are a German technical progressive death fusion band founded in 2002 by guitarist/vocalist Steffen Kummerer. The band caused a stir when they – out of nowhere – toured as support for SUFFOCATION on their European tour in 2006 and when they independently released their debut album ‘Retribution’ that same year.

In late 2007 – after several line-up changes – OBSCURA announced drummer Hannes Grossmann (ex-NECROPHAGIST) and fretless bass player Jeroen Paul...

DEAD CROSS – New Music Video Premiere

DEAD CROSS — featuring current and former members of Faith No More, Slayer, The Locust and Mr. Bungle — have released a video for “Skin of a Redneck,” a track from the band’s 2018 self-titled EP. The clip was directed by Kay Otto and is available above.

Dead Cross emerged out of a series of impractical schemes, fallen-through plans, and last-minute musical experimentation. Shows were scheduled before a single song was written, fans were formed before even one show was played.
