OMNIUM GATHERUM… STILL EPIC
I’ve been cranking Omnium Gatherum’s new album New World Shadows ever since the folks at Lifeforce Records granted us press access in early January, and now’s your chance to do so too: the entire album is streaming at RecordShopX.com for a limited time. Warning: be prepared for extremely good, colossal, epic, aching, melo-death/doom.
If you somehow still haven’t listened to Omnium Gatherum, you’re likely to think they’re the shit if you enjoy the following bands: Insomnium, Daylight Dies, Swallow the Sun, etc. I might even go so far as to say I’m enjoying New World Shadows more than I did Insomnium’s last album… woah! There, I said it.
New World Shadows is out now everywhere except the U.S., where it’ll arrive on March 1st. It’s really too bad that Lifeforce couldn’t coordinate a mutual international release date; money is being left on the table by forcing Americans caught up in the worldwide release hype to pirate.
