It’s only fair that we tell you Omnium Gatherum’s forthcoming album Beyond is now streaming in full. Since we published three different glowing reviews of Beyond months before its scheduled release dates (Feb 25 in Europe and Mar 5 in the U.S.) when we had no music we could share with you, it’s the least we can do.
Before today, Omnium Gatherum did begin streaming one of the album’s numerous stand-out tracks, “New Dynamic” (which you can hear at this location), and then they later premiered a wonderful official video for a second one — “The Unknowing” — which, for the hell of it, I’m including after the jump again.
But now you can hear the entire album. Thanks to a tip from DGR, I learned that it was premiered today by the Finnish Inferno site, and the SoundCloud player is embedded after the jump. But Inferno also has a track-by-track commentary by the band, and you don’t even need to process it through the hilarity of Google Translate because there’s an English translation of the track commentary at that site. Go HERE to read it.
Now, music . . .
Loving this so far! Listened upto ‘In the Rim’ and its all as good as I could have hoped for. Seems to have the best elements from The Redshift and New World Shadows. Can’t wait for it to appear on my phone next week – preordered it already 🙂
This is so awesome. It sounds as good as I hoped, and even better.
This is incredibly good.
I love how the last track ties back in to LuoTo, I know Aether Realm did it with their disc too but damnit I’m a sucker for a really good melody reappearing like that.
I didn’t know anything about this band, but I am half-way through the songs and like what I am hearing.
There’s a couple of unnecessary “transpose up a step!”-style key changes in the first two tracks, which is throwing me off a bit; but an absolute ripper of an album.
