Staff review by
Omnium Gatherum is a band that is not unknown to fans of Gothenburg Metal. When people talk about Omnium Gatherum, they say that it is a band that sounds very much like the old Swedish wave of gothenburg bands like: Inflames, At the Gates, Dark Tranquillity and similar bands but with the difference that they have a "Finnish feeling" to their music. And this can in fact be a good description of their music because although the band seems to be mostly inspired by Swedish bands, they somehow still have their own "Finnish sound". The band themselves also mentions many diverse bands such as; Katatonia, Opeth, Death, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest amongst their influences.

I want to begin by getting something obvious out of the way. The vocals on this release are going to get bashed. It's inevitable. The guy sounds like a huge Lindberg fan who has been on the road, over-touring, and drinking too much in the process. And, as a person who has chosen to find something good in them, I found that I love this about them. Why? Man...I dunno. Probably the same reason that I prefer Mr. Johnny Cash's last recordings to his younger days. I can feel their struggle, their determination, their perseverance. But no, they aren't strong. But they work well. The emotive performance of this progressive-tinged melodeath band give the perfect backdrop for them.
