    Rafael has big shoes to fill. It won't be easy following Muenzner and Fountainhead. I'm hoping his solos are tasty, but I've been spoiled by the previous leads in Obscura.

    I also really liked Hannes' drumming more. Good thing Alkaloid has new material this year :lol:

    Oh my! Can't wait for Alkaloid. The Malkuth Grimoire was an insane release. I really love the combo between Hannes and Muenzner. Two of my favorite artists in this genre.

    I know that is a Euro Tour in November as Linus mentioned it on a Thoman video about his gear.

    Pretty sure they can be tasty as he mostly does jazz/ fusion stuff but the shoes he has to fill....
    He's a fantastic player. Loved how he learnt to properly play the akroasis solo like Tom does.

    Alkaloid II coming next year yeeeeeeeeehbbbbb000000000iiiii

    So basically new album summer 2018
    They have entered the studio to record the new one as always with V. Santura :deathm:
    Apparently they most of the album written and its supposed to be "their most heavy, musical, technical,etcetc"

    This is kind of the opposite from the Omnivium-Akroasis shift which took 5 years whereas this is less than 2 years haha

    They probably will like they did with Akroasis, which came out at once IIRC
    They probably will include solos this time, since there a no feuds haha

    WOW
    Steffen just joined ESP apparently, he uploaded a video of him playing sermon of the seven suns with a white ESP E-II 7.

    I feel kind of sad haha, his old RAN screamed Obscura and was iconic in a way.
