OmegaThrone is back.
After a first album in 2020, the English band led by Marcin Lachovsky (guitar, ex-Sclavinia, ex-Innovation Threat) and Piotr Furieux (drums, Atanamir, ex-Innovation Threat) recruits Charlotte Rogers (bass) and J.J. Moffat (vocals, ex-Aftermath) to work on There’s No Hatred as Great as Dictator’s Love-Prelude to Empire, their new EP.
After a blurred introductory sample from what seems to be several historical speeches, Cancellation comes to strike with energetic and groovy riffs supported by raw vocals and catchy sounds. The effective mix also lets some accelerations add an extra fix of violence to the Death Metal influences, then the solo will bring the track a layer of melodiousness before Drowning In Darkness comes to feed the strength surge with complex riffs. The song’s speed makes it extremely aggressive, but the band doesn’t forget heaviness or the ominous side with few muffled vocal parts. Melodic leads are still not far away, making a few minor appearances before letting the short but explosive Fear And Elegance close the EP in a mix of speed and raw efficiency, translated into an almost endless blast and energetic riffs.
With this short new EP, OmegaThrone proves to us that the band is still present in the scene, and that they intend to make themselves heard. There’s No Hatred as Great as Dictator’s Love-Prelude to Empire offers efficient and easy to listen riffs between Black/Death and Thrash/Groove.
