Interview with Obscenium!

Genre(s): Technical Death Metal
Location: Perth, Western Australia

PSAB: Where does the band name “Obscenium” come from exactly? 

Obscenium
: The name
was originally derived from Hypocrisy’s second record, entitled ‘Osculum
Obscenum’. After a slight tweak it went on a pretty lengthy list of
potential band names; eventually winning out. I guess it’s really open
to interpretation though.
 
 
PSAB: You’re currently working on your debut album. What can we expect? 

Obscenium
:
We’re
really happy with how the tracks have turned out (there are 9), each
drawing from a vast pool of influences; which in turn provides a
tasteful degree of contrast and character varying from song to song.
 
 
You
can expect everything from blisteringly fast Technical Death Metal and
colourful riffing sections packed with groove, to Jazz breaks and Piano
interludes. In addition to this we have a concept for the lyrical side
of things that will span the entire record, it’s very sci-fi.

PSAB: If you had the choice to have a musician featured on one of your tracks. Which musician would that be and why? 

Obscenium
:
I
can’t speak on behalf of my band-mates, making this a bit of a tough
question, but I’d personally choose Ron Jarzombek of Blotted Science.
He’s constantly finding new ways to compose music, and is always pushing
the limits of creativity in one way or another.
 
 
PSAB: What is the metal scene like in Perth, Western Australia? 

Obscenium
:
Talent
is plentiful, there are a bunch of awesome bands making a name for
themselves. There’s also a lot of enthusiasm in both the local fans and
local bands alike, it’s really good to see! We’re a fairly tight-knit
community, which goes hand in hand with the size of Perth’s demographic –
everyone pretty much knows everyone else.  
 
 
PSAB: What are three bands that play the most influence on your music? 

Obscenium
:
Blotted Science, The Faceless & Death.
 
 
PSAB: Have any shout outs to give? 

Obscenium
:
We’d
like to thank anyone who’s checked out our music, showed support either
live or via-social networking, or patiently waited for the album. Kudos
is also due for the promoters who have booked us for shows in the past.

Questions answered by Levi, bass player of the band.
