Omnium Gatherum will release their new EP Slasher on June 2 and is now streaming the title track. The single comes alongside a music video produced by Coldstore Productions, and has more than enough melodic death metal goodness to get you through the weekend.
"A powerful fast song with a message like a plea to oneself!" said vocalist Jukka Pelkonen. "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'!"
"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!" said guitarist and vocalist Markus Vanhala.
"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!"
