EXCLUSIVE TRACK PREMIERE: OBSCURA COVER CYNIC’S “HOW COULD I?”
For fans of prog, tech metal, and all things awesome, the idea Obscura covering a classic Cynic track from 1993’s Focus probably sounds too boneriffic to be true. But it’s a really real thing: as part of their upcoming release, Illegimitation — a collection of the band’s earliest recordings from 2003, unreleased songs from 2006′s Cosmogenesis sessions, and covers recorded by their current line-up — Obscura do, indeed, tackle Cynic’s “How Could I?” And they hit the ball out of the park, too, putting their own spin on the material while staying loyal to the spirit of the original.
MetalSucks is thrilled to debut Obscura’s cover of Cynic’s “How Could I?”, which you can stream below. Once you’re head-over-ass in love with it, you can buy Illegimitation here. And check out Obscura on Facebook to stay up-to-date on all of these tech gods’ latest activities!
