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.
