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!

“New World Shadows” track listing:
01. Everfields (9:17)
02. Ego (4:07)
03. New World Shadows (6:00)
04. Soul Journeys (4:54)
05. Nova Flame (4:10)
06. An Infinite Mind (5:43)
07. Watcher Of The Skies (4:17)
08. The Distance (3:59)
09. Deep Cold (9:29)

The CD was recorded at Astia Studio 2 in Lappeenranta & OmG Studio in
Karhula, Finland with Teemu Aalto, and was mixed and mastered at
Unisound Studio in Örebro, Sweden by Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, OPETH,
KATATONIA, DISSECTION, HAIL OF BULLETS, BLOODBATH etc.). The new album
includes also some guest features from Dan Swanö (Nightingale/Star
One/ex-Edge Of Sanity/ex-Bloodbath etc.) singing clean vox & Niilo
Sevänen (Insomnium) growling few screams.

Fantastic track, and a definite improvement over previous albums. I love the melodies in the slower sections, this is exactly the sort of Melodic Death Metal that I like. Nice work!

Thanks! Btw, you might be interested about that everything on this album is played live. No copy/pasting, no replacing beats or tuning vocals, i.e. no bullshit! ;) The drum tracks are made of only a few live takes each.

More stuff coming online soon!
