Hungry for some modern melodic death metal with ridiculously catchy pop influences? Well, your dinner has just been served. This steaming nine-course setting is called “Origin” and it is honoringly brought to the table by renowned Finnish metal outfit, OMNIUM GATHERUM. The Finnish melodic death metal masters just release their second single “Reckoning” today. The track is off their new upcoming album “Origin”, which will be released worldwide on November 5th via Century Media Records. Watch the video for “Reckoning” below.
OMNIUM GATHERUM have been offering remarkable pieces of melodic death metal for already twenty-five shining years. While storming through these ferocious decades, they have convinced worldwide legions of heavy metal lovers by releasing unstoppable musical onslaughts and touring relentlessly all over the world. “Origin” was mixed by Jens Bogren and mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios.
”‘Reckoning’ is a certain powersong or an uplifting song which we needed to rise from the depths of a past year, and it was the last song we wrote for the new album. Adult oriented death metal at its finest glory, that dark and shiny place where Def Leppard and death metal meets. Death Leppard, maybe? The music video saved a warm memory from a very hot summer day in my hometown of Kotka, where we played at the rocks of the beautiful island of Rankki. Lying on the rocks zipping cold beer and driving with the boats at the sea. Kotka isn’t that far from Miami, except geographically,” states OMNIUM GATHERUM guitarist Markus Vanhala.
Markus Vanhala (guitars, clean vocals) adds: “…that leads us to the near past times of the band. Not only some virus but also weird lineup changes made our last year really difficult. But Finnish perseverance means that hard times and crisis are made to take on as a challenge, overcome them and refine yourself better. So here we are, back on track stronger than ever! That’s why there’s a minimum amount of Finnish melancholy & darkness, but maximum amount of awesomeness & good times in this video. Never surrender!”
“Origin” will be available as Ltd. CD Digipak, Gatefold LP and as digital album. All physical formats can be pre-ordered HERE.
