Happy afternoon, fellow metal backyard yokels. I am zoning out watching Azealia Mermaid Ball “Jumanji” on YouTube (one of her best songs, still). Anyway I paused a minute to check my emails and learned some sick ass metal news regarding a current favorite.
Melodic death metal masters OMNIUM GATHERUM are excited to announce the release of their new track “Chaospace”. The previously unreleased track was written and recorded during the sessions of the band’s latest and critically acclaimed full-length album The Burning Cold. “Chaospace” is released as a 2-track digital single that also features a cover version of SEPULTURA’s “We Who Are Not As Others”. Watch it below.
I caught like heavier + more technical Colony-era In Flames vibes from parts of this one, certainly a killer new song and everyone’s parts work really well together!
OMNIUM GATHERUM guitarist Markus Vanhala states, “‘Chaospace’ – head banging, skull crushing straight-forward OG melodeath assault and the evil cousin of “The Burning Cold” legacy! It’s not exactly “the new” song representing where the band is heading at the moment, as this song was recorded already during “The Burning Cold” -sessions back in early 2018. It didn’t exactly fit the album drama and entirety, so we decided to keep it to be released later as a stand-alone single track and a reminder that we’re here alive an’ well! …And now’s the time to unleash this beasty – right before our European headliner tour, that’s starting next week, where we’re gonna kick your arse every night with this “Chaospace” bastardo too. N-joy & see you down the road once again!!!”
“The song is about inevitability of change, and the chaos it brings forth before routine sets in,” adds Jukka Pelkonen about the lyrics.
