Ominous – Death…The Beginning [Demo]

No Image Available

Tape release, patches…Ominous from Finland, with (ex-) members of bands like Urn, Bestial Torture and Behexen, certainly knows how to keep the nostalgic flame burning! Although already formed in 2009, “Death…The Beginning” is their first demo released by French Impious Desecration Records and is filled with, as they call it, pure uncompromising Black Metal or Destructive Black Metal even because of the additional Death and Thrash Metal influences. The production is quite clear and to me the Thrash influences are quite present. This demo has an Australian vibe as bands like Gospel of the Horns (their “Eve of the Conqueror” EP) or Deströyer 666 pops into my mind frequently. Only semi mid/up-tempo. Along with the instrumental “Crimson Flames” some Desaster can be added as well. I don’t expect this will be picked up by the masses who are into filthy Black/Thrash as it is not as “Ominous” as you expect from most Black/Thrash bands, but this is still well music written en played demo.
