Omnium Gatherum - New Album Details Revealed

Finnish melodic death metallers Omnium Gatherum have announced details for their upcoming new album. It will be entitled Beyond and is set to be released on February 25th in Europe and March 5th in North America via Lifeforce Records. Beyond was recorded by Teemu Aalto and mixed and mastered once again by the golden hands of Mr. Dan Swanö. Check out the album artwork and full tracklist below.

Guitarist Markus Vanhala comments: "It's now been approx 10-years since our debut full-lenght album Spirits And August Light was released and the world was waiting. The latest 2011 album New World Shadows was a good breakthrough for us and lots of good things happened after that record, so of course we had some pressures to do a decent successor for that great record as the world was waiting again.

Well, i think we managed on mastering that task and now we're back again with the OG's 6th album called Beyond, the album that is really going beyond all limits of melodic death metal from the winter wonderland. The album follows the good known path of New World Shadows and The Redshift but adds a lot of new flavours and spices to the good old melting pot to lift the band to a new heights. It's our most melodic and versatile album so far but at the same time it still holds for example the most brutal death metal growls in our career yet as also some really tasteful clean vox between the lines. I'm sure everyone who gives the album many spins can find something new with every turn, so this should be an album that holds up the sands of time and rewards the listeners who are digging deeper and searching something more than just a one hit wonders of the day!

Lyrically told Beyond is about the culmination point of one's existence. It is a coming home story where the mysteries of duality are melted into oneness but without losing one single point of individuality along the arrival. As you can see from the cover there's also a strong sense of sea on the album, as we're the sons of the sea from Kotka!"

Their last album was really great so this is highly promising.

Their last album made it almost to the top of my all time favourite albums... This also looks very promising, great artwork and interesting song titles...

Indeed. Their last album was a amazing album, in same league as Dark Tranquillity or Insomnium. These guys can deliver and I hope they did it with this one too.

Love the simplicity.

If this album is better than New World Shadows it will be at least 11/10
