Omnium Gatherum

Ambitious death metal with sense and skill

The melodic death metal group Omnium Gatherum has declared their dark message for over a decade. The band combines catchy melodies to hard metal, and the vocals echo nuances from classic heavy to black metal. Their popularity has increased consistently over the years, and nowadays they tour Europe with bands like Rotting Christ spreading the word of Finnish metal across the continent. Omnium Gatherum's new album The New World Shadows was also released in Europe and the States, and it has received praising reviews everywhere.

Omnium Gatherum's appeal is based on excellent songs, and their rare ability to salute different sides of metal music in their expression. The band combines wistful melodies to frantic riffs in a unique manner, but at the same time the songs reflect the history of the genre, from Judas Priest to Dark Tranquillity and from Sentenced to Children of Bodom. At gigs, Omnium Gatherum offers a ruthless set of tight death metal in which the Nordic gloom unites with the flamboyant song material. Should the festival day become too hot, Omnium Gatherum is guaranteed to chill your soul.
