About the Band


VIA OBSCURA's music is German-speaking gothic pop rock, inspired by the spirit of classical gothic, European classical music and progressive rock leaning in to 70s (prog) rock sound.

VIA OBSCURA was formed in 2004 as an experimental band project. With a love for music in general, an eclectic background of jazz, gothic-rock/doom bands and classical ensembles – and open minded for other genres –, the three young musicians create a special music that is atmospheric and slow, united with powerful and epic sounds through a soprano voice.

VIA OBSCURA's debut album Traum was released in October 2009.
