Obscura Drummer Crowdfunding Solo LP


Hannes Grossmann
Oh yeah, dude.

German drummer Hannes Grossmann will release his first solo album, entitled The Radial Covenant, in December.

But in order to finance the album, Grossmann — known for his work with Obscura and Necrophagist — has had to launch a crowdfunding campaign.

Go here for more details.

Says Grossmann: “The music on the album sounds a lot like my band Obscura, but that’s just how I compose. The reason not to release it as an Obscura album is simple: Obscura is a band, which means that four people work together and create music as a collective. If I write 45 minutes of music on my own, it has to be a solo record.

“It’s probably gonna take another year until a new Obscura album will see the light of day, so here’s your chance to make time pass more quickly.”

That’s lame. A whole year before we get some new Obscura.
