OBSCURA QALMA - Share New Single "Awaken A Shrine To Oblivion"

Italian Blackened Symphonic Death Metal outfit, OBSCURA QALMA have released a new single "Awaken A Shrine To Oblivion".

Recent Rising Nemesis Records signees Obscura Qalma are excited to announce their upcoming debut album, Apotheosis. Set for release on November 12th via Rising Nemesis Records.

Active since 2018, Venice, Italy natives Obscura Qalma formed from connections built in their local scene while performing within their prior projects. Upon forming, the band immediately began playing live and released their first effort, an EP in 2019 entitled From the Sheol to the Apeiron. Self-described as "blackened heavily orchestrated death metal" that is "influenced by Behemoth and Septicflesh", Obscura Qalma also incorporates influences from Death, Dissection, Hypocrisy, and classical/film score music among others to create epic and dark death metal that exists in its own philosophically inspired realm. From a lyrical and thematic angle, Apotheosis draws additional fire and fuel from the likes of Nietzsche, Freud, and additional modern astrophysical theories.

Obscura Qalma comments, "From the nihilistic foundations of European culture and epistemological solipsism to astrophysics and psychoanalysis, ‘Apotheosis' dwells on the limits of human knowledge and the impassable boundaries of its own existence."

"Inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche and Sigmund Freud, as well as by contemporary figures such as Massimo Recalcati and James Owen Weatherall, Apotheosis (from the Greek meaning, "To Deify") explores human existence in an epistemological solipsistic view. Elevated to divine status, from a higher point we can look at the external world as an unresolvable question rather than actually false.

Musically, the album is inspired by Dissection, Emperor and Death as well as by classical music and film composers such as Alexandre Desplat."

*Pre-orders will be announced soon.
