In order to commemorate the 12th year anniversary of Sanity Obscure, founding member KING J05H0!? (guitars/vocals) had made the decision to disband after 5 releases in 12 years. Sanity Obscure (SG) was formed in Singapore during 2008 and went on to release the debut EP ‘DETHRONE THE KING’ on 16th October 2008 which also coincided with the date of dissolution last Friday. The band initially started out playing a style of music in the vein of Technical Thrash Metal but soon expanded out by incorporating elements of Progressive Death Metal with bits of Space Rock and Jazz Fusion which could be heard on subsequent albums ‘SUBTERRANEAN CONSTELLATION’ (2012) & ‘CODEX INCOGNITUS’ (2018). On 1st April 2020, the band released an experimental EP ‘SPACE.DOOM.MYSTERY’ which incorporated Electronic Music and Psychedelic Doom influences within their unique brand of Metal.
Over the years, Sanity Obscure (SG) had worked with numerous musicians locally and internationally including Mike Browning (Nocturnus A.D./ex-Morbid Angel), Kevin Hufnagel (Gorguts/Dysrhythmia), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Heli Andrea (Mobius), Vinod Seer (Rudra), Gabriele Pala (ex-Karnak), Protector 101 etc. The band has also played shows alongside acts such as Wormrot, Randolf Arriola, Absence Of The Sacred, Fallen World and others in the past.
To celebrate the band’s existence, KING J05H0!? released the compilation ‘LIMINAL RECOLLECTIONS: 2008-2020’ which includes 10 tracks and a 12-page PDF booklet depicting the history of the band.
