STUCK ON SNAKES WAY
Melodic death metal troupe Ominum Gatherum keeps it dark and heavy throughout the 12-track STUCK ON SNAKES WAY. Taking the foundation laid down by such acts as The Haunted, In Flames, Soilwork, and the obligatory At The Gates influence, this Finnish act runs full steam ahead with cuts like "In Sane World" and "Into Sea". Masterfully melding blistering rhythms, growling vocals, and flashy fretwork into cohesive bits of metal excellence, tracks like "Spiritual", "A-Part of God", and "Undertaker" displays this sextet's ability to hold their own amongst the torchbearing metal groups of the 21st Century. A solid offering throughout.
