Obscura has revealed the addition of guitarist Rafael Trujillo to their ranks. Trujillo, who replaces departed Obscura guitar player Tom Geldschläger, is a 2014 graduate of the Munich Guitar Institute and studies jazz at Amsterdam Conservatorium, University of Arts.

Bassist Linus Klausenitzer comments: "Rafael is young and full of motivation. His great guitar tone, his speed and his tasteful choice of scales are just a little insight into his musical skills. We are very proud to have him on board and look forward to share the stages with him on the upcoming touring cycle."

Meanwhile, Trujillo had this to say: "I'm really happy to be a part of this band. It's like a dream is coming true for me. Also I'm looking forward to work together with these awesome musicians. I can't wait to bring my own ideas into the new material even if I didn't take part in the recordings of the great new album "Akroasis". However, be prepared for upcoming shows!"
