Obscura will hold auditions in August and September to replace departed members Christian Muenzner and Hannes Grossmann and stabilize their lineup prior to tracking a new album. The yet untitled fourth full length is the third installment of a four album concept that started with the release of Cosmogenesis in 2009. Steffen Kummerer comments: "Currently we are in the middle of the songwriting process for our new album. The yet finished material turns out to focus on the trademarks we established during the last 12 years. Technicality paired with stringent arrangements, progressive riffing across fusion and death metal that makes Obscura sound unique. We will enter the studio by the end of 2014. Since Christian Muenzner and Hannes Grossmann departed we recieved requests from all over the world. We invite the candidates that may fit and get in touch directly with each person. To both, Christian and Hannes; I wish them the best for their solo careers and new projects." Linus Klausenitzer adds: "We spend a lot of time for songwriting and preproduction to make the new songs as intense as possible. Every album needs to have a certain vibe to stand out from the others. I'm glad that we can see this picture in the puzzle already."
