German progressive death metal unit Obscura have officially added drummer David Diepold to their line-up. Diepold replaces Sebastian Lanser, who exited the group earlier this year.

Hailing from Austria, Diepold has served as a session drummer for a handful of bands and also works as a drum teacher. You can watch him in action via the play-through video below.

Diepold comments: "Being asked to join Obscura was definitely a dream come true! You know, I'm at a point in my musical career, where I tend to say, that the countless hours in my rehearsal room are finally starting to pay off. Especially over the last five or six years, applications from bands and musicians continuously got more professional and collaborating with those artists all helped a lot to improve my drumming skills and to grow as a musician. I will do my absolute best to recreate Hannes' and Sebastian's parts in the context of our live performances but most of all, I'm looking forward to write new material with such outstanding musicians!"
