Obscenity Trial

In 1993, Oliver Wand, along with Guido Adolphi, founded Obscenity Trial. It was the cornerstone for a future development that nobody would have predicted. After a 6 year separation, 2004 saw the band reborn -- and finally releasing it's debut album, "Here and Now". More than a simple statement, the album is the exclamation behind the band's remarkable history.
