Like %75 of all the bands from before the 2010s are kind of obscure and are missing a lot of info, especially those 80s/90s bands, there are many bands that are even obscurer than a black hole, so I thought it would be a good idea to start listening them in a thread and work together as a community to gather as much info possible on those bands.

By obscure I mean bands that share two or more of the next criteria:
- There's just one (or a pair) of releases submitted that are missing important info, or no releases are listed.
- It's missing most or all of its last known line-up.
- It's missing both an image of the logo and the members.
- Status is unknown.

Some obscure bands that I've found:
- Glacial Sun
- Wizzard
- Chiolution
- 14-22
- A Kill s Tem
- El Abismo
- Atimormia
- Orthanc
- Estigma
- Sabaoth
- Soil Creep

Many of the bands here are obscure and need some research too.

Sadly we know that most of these bands will never be brought into light, but we can at least try to do something. Most of the contact information is outdated and most email directions bands could have don't work anymore.

Our best bet is trying to contact anyone that was involved with any of these obscure bands, Facebook and other social networks are probably the easist way to do so. Worked with me for some bands (Faethon, Mindblizz, Habeas Corpus, etc)
