ROB SCALLON and SARAH LONGFIELD Play Through “The Obscurity” (And a Game of Chess)

Earlier this year, Rob Scallon dropped an album called The Scene is Dead, where each song is named after a Chicago band who shaped the local metal scene over the years. After The Obscurity faded into just that, Rob titled a track after them and enlisted Sarah Longfield‘s help for a nasty solo.

Part guitar playthrough, part music video, you can watch the pair fight for glory on both the fretboard and the chessboard. And FYI, you can snatch up The Scene is Dead on CD or vinyl (and bundled with a poster, if you’re into that kinda stuff) at Rob’s DFTBA store.
