about

OBSCENITY was formed in Oldendburg, Lower Saxony as a five-piece in 1989 with the intention of playing brutal death metal, and the band's debut album, 'Suffocated Truth', was released in 1992. It was only in 1996, with the release of the band's third album, ‘The 3rd Chapter’, that OBSCENITY developed their current well known style, offering direct bludgeoning death metal riffs, with a Floridian approach to their aural carnage.
The band has taken part in several European metal festivals during the years, such as Fuck The Commerce Festival, No Mercy Festival, With Full Force Open Air and Wacken Open Air, to name a few, and supported Six Feet Under on their Summer tour in 2003.
After splitting up in 2009, the band was reformed with a new lineup by guitarist Hendrik Bruns the following year, and came out with their its eighth full-length, ‘Atrophied in Anguish’, in 2012.
A few years later, Tobias Müller joined the band as the new vocalist and 10 new tracks were composed: the upcoming output is named ‘Retaliation’, and it will be released in late Spring 2016.

Track Name: Claustrophobic Hell
Free me

Eyes betraying
Ears are lying
My mouth shows me up
Blurring veil
Memories pale
Death wish soon erupts
Take me away

Worthlessness
Claustrophobic hell
Utmost horror
Vitality undone

All lust´s been absorbed
A deep sense of distress remains
All life´s been effaced from my soul
Lamentable and empty shell

Free me from this unbearable pain

My body dies and is
Following my mind that
Withers on the vine
Locked within lifeless flesh
I´d wish I´m dead and gone
Claustrophobic hell

Timeless vortex
Mercy spurned
Futile breathing
Moribund

All lust´s been absorbed
A deep sense of distress remains

All life´s been effaced from my soul
Claustrophobic hell

Rotting in delirium
Put me out of my misery
Vegetate in agony
End my fucking pain
Emptiness

Free me from this unbearable pain
Take me away
Take me away
Track Name: Embracing The Plague
A black guise
Crooked in shape ´n mind
Dense smoke ´n fumes
Mankind used and consumed

When no one´s left to mourn
When no one´s left to die

Die

Strolling around
Sowing fractious seeds of decay
Scythe upraised
Soon the skilled hands will provide
Warning sign
Cassandra´s call remains unheard

Prophecy of doom
Completion of disgrace

Human sacrifice
Self-inflicted parasites
Pain engulfs our destiny
Witless fucking legacy
An unconvincible spawn
Erased by a new dawn
Human sacrifice
Self-inflicted parasites

A black guise
Crooked in shape ´n mind
Dense smoke ´n fumes
Mankind used and consumed

When no one´s left to mourn
The rats will rule this world

World

The seed´s been sown
Death will bloom in Eden
Harvest starts in time
Evisceration will consume
The rotten race
Breeding its own misery

Human sacrifice
Self-inflicted parasites
Pain engulfs our destiny
Witless fucking legacy
Track Name: Whore Of Secret
Mother of evil
Let me be your servant
Feed me your disgust
Bathe me in your feces
Whore of secret
Fill my cup with blood
Priest of Babylon
Enslave my soul

At the foot of the tower the scarlet beast´s creeping
The goddess of carnal desire enthroned
The world is her oyster and I am enslaved
By the greed and my deeds I am baptized in lust
Sucking the breasts that will never exhaust
Exorcising old morals with every drop

Take my soul for food
Burn me in your fire

Salty tears run down my cheek
Besprinkle the belly of the busty beast
Feeding the river mouth between her thighs
When all hell breaks loose her temptation´s unleashed
Her cunt´s like a vortex and I´m diving deep
There´s no god no more, we are just mammon’s breed

Fill my life with greed
And drown me in my sins
Unleash my desires
And take my soul for food
Produce the worst of me
And burn me in your fire

Pet my seven heads
Penetrate my ten horns
I am and I´m not
I´m about to come up
Mother of Evil
Let me be your servant
Feed me your disgust
Bathe me in your feces
Whore of secret
Fill my cup with blood
Priest of Babylon
Enslave my soul
Track Name: Abandon All Hope
One by one - Subordinate and forward march
Joining one by one
Abandon all hope
You who are now entering abandon all your hope
Step by step
Onward to the slaughterhouse dying step by step
Killing floor
Join the masses for the mass afford the killing floor

Wolves call to the sacrament
The shambles awaits the lambs
The death knell rings in all its grace
The sheep have been fed
Lambs to slaughter
The death knell rings in all its grace
The shambles awaits the lambs
Wolves call to the sacrament
The sheep have been sheared

Out of his grave crawls the savior of (f) lies
The flesh dissolves from the bones born by a whore
In mean disguise the zombie poisons weak minds
Nailed to a cross vultures pick out his dreary eyes
In bad faith
Shepherds lead the blind and dumb to shambles in bad faith
Sacrifice

Servants hail mendacious lives full of lies as sacrifice
Bigotry
Parrot verbal traps that enslave, obey the bigotry
Pay the price
Overwhelmed by selfless love in hell you´ll pay the price

Wolves call to the sacrament
The shambles awaits the lambs
The death knell rings in all its grace
The sheep have been fed
Abandon all hope
The death knell rings in all its grace
The shambles awaits the lambs
Wolves call to the sacrament
The sheep have been sheared

Surrounded by flies on a blood-red throne
Sits your fake redeemer and wallows in our pain
Maggots crawling out of empty eyeholes
While palsied hands arrange some hell on earth
Track Name: Ghastly Presence Haunting
Out of the blue as grey as the sky
No sparkle reveals what stays unseen
Shaped like eagles they conquer the world
Without any wing beat they remain (unheard)
Always aware in the shiniest light
Forever awake in the deep of the night
Neither wall nor door can hold ´em back
They are coming to breathe down your neck

A hive of killers with no life of its own
Under a tragic spell of people unknown
Swarming silent to populate the earth
Seeking for victims that are naturally cursed
Silent - unseen - deadly - supremacy

A hive of killers with no life of its own
Silent
Under a tragic spell of people unknown
Unseen
Swarming silent to populate the earth
Deadly
Seeking for victims that are naturally cursed
Supremacy

Threatened to death by what once was a vague rumor
Supreme art of killing in this new hide and seek
Punished for a life at the wrong place and wrong time

Ghastly
Presence
Haunting

Filling coffin after coffin, plague of our time
Armed with greed and fed with fear, blindsided by hate
Merciless enforcement of their own destiny

Ghastly
Presence
Haunting

Lacerated ligaments, force-fed broken bones
Ripped-off head, face scared stiff, flesh burnt to fucking coal
Open wounds where hands were once,
blood spills all around

Out of the blue as grey as the sky
No sparkle reveals what stays unseen
Shaped like eagles they conquer the world
Without any wing beat they remain unheard
Track Name: The Day Of Wrath
Ice cold eyes open wide
Bane tongue of wrath poked out
Flailing arms promise hell
Time of our doom has come
We will be taken down
Renewal has just begun

Finally come down on us
And take revenge for what we are
Hang our heads around your neck
And let us bleed to death
Swallow the rivers of our blood
And dance the demolition dance
Be the time that stops existence

End what you´ve begun
Destroy what you created
End what you´ve begun
Destroy what you created once
Track Name: Deracination
Shadows surround a billion minds
Veils of fear cover empty souls
The ecstasy of recreance

There is no god that cares
There is no god that helps
There is no god that loves
There is no god

Treading path of broken hopes
Leading apes in to fucking hell
Edge of our abyss free falling

Vertigo by inanity
Fatal contempt for the fallen
Condoning a world of lies
Bloodsheds for eternal praise
Paeans echo through dumb skulls
The simple trap irrelevance
A blur escape from nothingness
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust

Shadows surround a billion minds
Veils of fear cover empty souls
The ecstasy of recreance

There is no god that cares
There is no god that helps
There is no god that loves
There is no god

Forsaken creatures quickened in pain
Thralldom instilled
Under the spell of an entity
Dastardly vicious

False awareness
Sentence of death
The apes betrayed

Vertigo by inanity
Hellish fever, hebetude
Condoning a world of lies
Misty-eyed and fractured hearts
Paeans echo through dumb skulls
Mucker by imperiousness
A blur escape from nothingness
The apes have risen to their end
Track Name: Innate Depravity
Spreading limitless no boundaries can stop the plague
Infesting every corner on the surface of the earth
The host befallen ever since in agony it cries
There is no antidote… the virus will survive

Against better judgment it detracts its livelihood and
Once the host´s been disemboweled the virus sets up for
Another breeding ground to satisfy its endless greed
It cannot change the way it is… evolved to shit

The road is lined with rivers of blood
Devastation is our game
Our rapacity is matchless
Not a villainy to hold
It´s survival of the fittest
Creation´s crowning glory

The swine!

Innate depravity
Begotten beasts
Peculiar ferocity
Raised in hate
Vast legacy
Insincerity
Fed with lies until they die
Unreflecting exploitation adaptable as hell
Insistently it still proceeds regardless of expense
The advance of a species with no moral nor remorse
Death is no respecter… of wealth

The road is lined with rivers of blood
Devastation is our game
Our rapacity is matchless
Not a villainy to hold
It´s survival of the fittest

Creation´s crowning glory

The swine!

Innate depravity
Begotten beasts
Peculiar ferocity
Raised in hate
Vast legacy
Insincerity
Fed with lies until they die
Track Name: Soul Eater
Choke-holding the whole world
With a million eyes and ears
It´s unseen in its swirl
Spreading countless arms in fear

It creeps at day and lurks at night
Whenever you feel safe
The noose around your neck tightens
It turns your inside out
Like poisoned pin points in your veins
Despiteful tentacle spread disdain
You recognize its ugly face
Too late

There´s no escape, you cannot hide
Soul eater
With amputated legs and blind eyes
Soul eater
Accept the punishment you were asking for
Soul eater

Fear this ugly grimace
Once seen you´ll turn to stone
Sharp claws are holding you
There´s no more air to breathe
Disgusting breed of mistrust
Designed to rule

A global threat crushes all hope
Binds the poor in a mean disguise
Feeds the rich with false advice
Enslaves all nations

Choke-holding the whole world
With a million eyes and ears
It´s unseen in its swirl
Spreading countless arms in fear
Track Name: Ominous Determination
Razor blade sharp teeth are waiting
For you to dare
Down in her cave you´ll suffer
Last resting-place
Ripped all apart and wasted
No one´s been spurned
You´ve met your fate and lost
The deceitful game

Cursed and deformed
Banned and shunned
Scorned and dreaded

Neither a choice nor edging through

Awaited on either side

Life´s dishonest ways
Lead the path straight to
The unavoidable
Deadly embrace

A seething swirl´s caught your eye
The last thing you´ll see
Uproarious rumble, fearful shape
Drowned in vast pain
Sucked in and spitted out
Floating in decay
You´ve met your fate and lost
The deceitful game

Countless lives erased
By a lack of dignity
My life passes
Before my eyes

Wrathful maelstrom
Deep deceiver
Livid trap

Neither a choice nor edging through
Awaited on either side

Life´s dishonest ways
Lead the path straight to
The unavoidable
Deadly embrace
