It’s impossible to simply
call it Death Metal

Innovative, original – in short: unique!
These attributes seldom fit with bands in the more extreme music genres.

Nailed To Obscurity constitutes the rare exception. The Northern German five-piece successfully combines heavy riffs with mellow parts to create a distinctive sound which is absolutely unique.

It’s impossible to simply call it Death Metal. Having played a lot of shows alongside renowned acts like Voivod, Dying Fetus, Sinister and Lay Down Rotten (among others) the band always proved its tremendous live-qualities over the years. Atmospheric and melancholic on the one hand and dark and powerful on the other hand, the lyrics deal with profound stories about the depths of humanity.

The debut – simply entitled “Abyss…” – was recorded in the renowned Soundlodge with producer Joerg Uken (Dew-Scented, God Dethroned, Sinister, Burial Vault, …).

Its successor “Opaque” takes the listener on an even more emotional trip into the innermost. Under the watchful eyes of Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Svartsot, Trials, …), the band entered the LSD-Studio to create a transparent and atmospheric sound which gets under your skin.
