"Space has no limit! Obskuria is hungry for the ultimate satisfaction and will hit you like an asteroid storm straight into the face. The international project started in 2006 with Tom Brehm, the legendary guitar player from the '60s U.S. group Dragonwyck, super-talented German keyboadist Winnie Rimbach-Sator (Karmic Society/Treacle People) and La Ira De Dios from Peru. What you hear on this album is the essence of euphoria, freedom and creativity! Through the total running time of almost 80 mins, a wide spectrum of influences are covered from Pink Floyd's Meddle, Ummagumma, Amon Düül 2, Ashra Temple, Hawkwind and Brainticket as well as transforming '80s (thrash)-metal into a natural '70s rock sound. This soundtrack concept album (for an upcoming movie) is best described as a voodoo space-rock experience which tells the 'true' story of what will happen to the world on December 21st, 2012. Besides 6 original cuts, the album contains 4 cover tunes, such as 'Die, Die My Darling' with male and female Airplane-style vocals, a gigantic monumental 8 min. version of Metallica's 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' basically in Black Sabbath sound featuring an ultra-heavy and frightening Hammond organ over burning '60s fuzz guitars -- a total blast! They perform with intensity and flow that only the end-'60s San Francisco bands and the mid '80s speed/thrash/punk revolution generated. The epic 19-minute track 'Essence Of Its Own' builds up from a moody space feeling to an unexpected groundbreaking explosion of sound. The CD release includes one bonus track (not played by Obskuria): 'The World Is Gone' is an original/authentic flashback by Peter Thomas, Germany's mastermind for movie sounds from 40 years ago, but it shares Obskuria's vision and closes our soundtrack for The Discovery of the Planet Obskuria. On low volume it may feel like an easy listening album, turning it up it will blow minds! Very few modern rock albums have the potential to bring new listening dimensions to the true music addicts & maniacs -- this one will do for sure -- it's pure euphor-rock-n-roll!"
