Omnium Gatherum Announce New EP “Slasher”, Share Video For The Title Track

Omnium Gatherum have announced a new EP titled “Slasher.” The effort will be released on June 2 and it will feature the following songs: “Slasher,” “Maniac” (Michael Sembello cover), “Sacred,” and “Lovelorn.” An official video for the title track can be found below:

Vocalist Jukka Pelkonen commented:

“A powerful fast song with a message like a plea to oneself! The darkness within can be an ally or an enemy. You are both the hunter and the hunted! ‘Slasher‘ is also the title of our upcoming EP. This bad boy delivers two more OG songs and a furious cover. For now, check out the rippings of ‘Slasher‘!”

Guitarist/vocalist Markus Vanhala added:

“Hello from OG HQ! We’ll serve you a snack in between album cycles – it’s called ‘Slasher‘, it’s an EP and it rocks! This release is a two-sided coin: A-side is presenting our new guitar hero and team player on the other side of the Atlantic, Mr. Nick Cordle (who joined the band right after our ‘Origin‘ release); B-side is presenting two older songs which were recorded already during the ‘Origin‘ sessions and aimed to release as digi-singles (but here they are on vinyl and CD too now finally). Enjoy!”

Omnium Gatherum Premiere “Fortitude” Music Video

Omnium Gatherum have premiered a new video for their new song “Fortitude.” This track is from the band’s new album “Origin,“ which will be released on November 5. The group commented:

“‘Fortitude‘ was filmed at Munapirtti, an island in the Southeast Finland, near Kotka. This cabin is the sacred sanctuary, our secret lair in the woods, where we have rehearsed many many bandcamps before entering the studios to record new albums since ‘New World Shadows‘. Isolated from the world.”

Omnium Gatherum Premiere “Reckoning” Music Video

Omnium Gatherum have premiered a new video for their new song “Reckoning.” This track is from the band’s new album “Origin,“ which will be released on November 5.

Guitarist Markus Vanhala commented:

“‘Reckoning‘ is a certain powersong or an uplifting song which we needed to rise from the depths of a past year, and it was the last song we wrote for the new album. Adult oriented death metal at its finest glory, that dark and shiny place where Def Leppard and death metal meets. Death Leppard, maybe? The music video saved a warm memory from a very hot summer day in my hometown of Kotka, where we played at the rocks of the beautiful island of Rankki. Lying on the rocks zipping cold beer and driving with the boats at the sea. Kotka isn’t that far from Miami, except geographically.”

Vocalist Jukka Pelkonen added:

“This song is clearly and absolutely about a situation where someone is really trying to mess things up and goes about doing it in secrecy. ‘A Story’ about an individual who is so messed up that he/she turns against the people who really matter. This is a certain way to ruin, yet the one doing so denies all responsibility ‘avoiding only the truth’…”

Omnium Gatherum Premiere “Paragon” Music Video

Omnium Gatherum have premiered a new video for their new song “Paragon.” This track is from the band’s new album “Origin,“ which will be released on November 5.

Frontman Jukka Pelkonen commented:

“Basically ‘Paragon‘ is about overcoming obstacles and hard situations. Anything that comes to the way may be intense and malign, but it will not shatter the diamond of resolve, that is the paragon.”

Guitarist/vocalist Markus Vanhala added:

“…that leads us to the near past times of the band. Not only some virus but also weird lineup changes made our last year really difficult. But Finnish perseverance means that hard times and crisis are made to take on as a challenge, overcome them and refine yourself better. So here we are, back on track stronger than ever! That’s why there’s a minimum amount of Finnish melancholy & darkness, but maximum amount of awesomeness & good times in this video. Never surrender!”

“Origin” Track Listing:

01. “Emergence”
02. “Prime”
03. “Paragon”
