German Progressive Death Metallers NAILED TO OBSCURITY have completed work on Opaque, their sophomore effort, which is set for a fall release on Apostasy Records.
The follow-up to the band’s 2007, self-released debut, Abyss, Opaque is their first for Apostasy and will be released on September 20th in Germany, September 23rd in the UK and the rest Of Europe and October 1st in North America. Opaque was produced together with Lasse Lammert at LSD-Studio in Lübeck, Germany. Artwork comes courtesy of Ben Borucki (Irrleuchten).
The band comments, “By suppressing our deepest feelings and by concealing our fears and emotions we mask our inner self. This topic runs like a red thread through our new album. No other title would fit the content better than Opaque. The artwork, which was done by Ben Borucki, captures this atmosphere perfectly and creates a symbiosis between the music, the lyrics and the art.”

Since 2005, the name NAILED TO OBSCURITY has stood for an inventive mélange of hard riffs, atmospheric melancholy and a distinctively unique sound. The band has already displayed all of these qualities on their debut album, Abyss, recorded at the Soundlodge Studio with producer Joerg Uken (God Dethroned, Izegrim a.o.).
After the release of their debut, NAILED TO OBSCURITY focused their energies on progressing as a band and elevated themselves to the next level through numerous shows and their consistent pursuit of musical refinement. The results have clearly paid off with their newest masterpiece, Opaque.
