Formed in 2005 by teenagers Jan-Ole Lamberti (guitars) and Volker Dieken (guitars), NAILED TO OBSCURITY went through the usual ups and downs as a band. The Germans took their name from a song off HATE ETERNAL’s debut album, »Conquering The Throne«, but that’s another story for another time. Mere months after forming, NAILED TO OBSCURITY issued their first demo, »Our Darkness«. Certainly, line-up shifts were part of the progression as a band, but Lamberti and Dieken – the band’s primary songwriters – pushed on, with Jann Hillrichs (drums) and Carsten Schorn (bass) forming the rhythmic foundation. While most bands live and die on the possibility of signing a label deal, NAILED TO OBSCURITY persevered, releasing their debut album, »Abyss«, independently in 2007. By the time, the group ushered in »Opaque« in 2013 and »King Delusion« in 2017 – both for German independent Apostasy Records – they were a different band entirely. BURIAL VAULT vocalist Raimund Ennenga had replaced Alexander Dirks in 2012, and the rest, at least for the present, is history.
