German melodic death/doom metallers NAILED TO OBSCURITY announced that they’ve signed a record deal with metal powerhouse Nuclear Blast Records earlier this year. After conquering the mainstage of the UK’s legendary Bloodstock Open Air, the band has now entered Woodshed Studio (near Landshut, Germany) with producer V. Santura (TRIPTYKON, DARK FORTRESS, BARREN EARTH, OBSCURA a.o.) to record the follow-up of their critically acclaimed album »King Delusion« (2017). The album is tentatively scheduled for a January 2019 release.

Comments the band, “It almost felt like coming home when we returned to the Woodshed Studio where we already recorded our last album »King Delusion«. Working with producer V. Santura has been such a great experience last time that there really was no doubt about asking him to produce this new album. We are still working on the the songs here in the studio, so they are not really finished at this point, but we can already tell that it might become our darkest album so far. Even though it’s typically NAILED TO OBSCURITY, there will be a lot of new things to discover that we haven’t done before. Drums are done now and we just started recording the guitars. We can’t wait to hear the final result and present it to you!”

Stay tuned for more info…!

In addition, the band has recently been announced as support act for melodic (death) metal heavyweights AMORPHIS and SOILWORK‘s co-headline run in early 2019. Additional support will come from Ukrainian modern metal band JINJER. A festival appearance at Germany’s Rockharz Open Air has already been confirmed too. NAILED TO OBSCURITY‘s current 2019 tour itinerary can be found below.

Stated guitarist Jan-Ole Lamberti, “We can’t wait to get back on the road again and we are very excited to be a part of this killer tour package. We are looking forward to seeing familiar faces at cities and venues that we’ve already played in the past, but also to meeting lots of new people at places and even countries we haven’t been to yet. This is going to be great!”
