MetalSucks Episode 246: Obscura's Steffen Kummerer

This week we talk to Obscura mastermind Steffen Kummerer about the band’s new record, Diluvium, why it took four chapters to tell the narrative behind it, the meaning of the title, his approach to making the record sound three dimensional, the importance of a good chorus, his study of German philosophy, which philosopher he feels best represents him today, the difficulty of misinformation, and the misunderstanding about the band breaking up when promoting the new record.

Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn also tackle the latest drama surrounding The FacelessRex Brown’s kind tribute to the late Vinnie Paul, how death brings closure to petty beefs, and whether or not Rex and Phil Anselmo should perform Pantera songs again.
