Hailing from Finland, OMNIUM GATHERUM is a band playing fierce death metal with breathtaking melodies, progressive originality and a discreet sense for superior folk brought together in an
over-all dark mood. It’s all about intensity and a morbid atmosphere. This is what makes NEW WORLD SHADOWS, bands fifth album (first for LIFEFORCE RECORDS), so unique and impressing. OMNIUM
GATHERUM are offering songs for people looking for something different that still is catchy. The moods and emotions swirling in the midst of the cauldron are the result of a challenging
dramaturgy based on thinking outside the box and reflected creativity beyond learnt structures.
Formed in 1996, OMNIUM GATHERUM have released four albums and one EP for well established labels such as Nuclear Blast, Candlelight and Rage Of Achilles. With their previous two albums – Stuck Here on Snake’s Way (2007) and The Redshift (2008) – the Fins even have entered the official Finnish top-30 album charts, followed by extensive touring all across Europe alongside Dark Tranquillity, Swallow The Sun, Entombed and Insomnium. On their fifth album OMNIUM GATHERUM are following their identifiable path being melodic but brutal with contrasts ranging from sorrow to joy and from hope to despair. NEW WORLD SHADOWS is an epic and massive attack of the ever flowing stream of Finnish melodic death metal played straight from the souls of the black!
