OMEGAVORTEX - Black Abomination Spawn LP
An ever-ominous entity hailing from Germany, OMEGAVORTEX formed in 2007 under the moniker Ambevilence and retained that moniker for a decade. Come 2017, OMEGAVORTEX was born, both in name and deed, and Promo 2018 followed. This tape sold more than 400 units despite being on no label - a rarity nowadays - and for good reason: its maw of blackened DEATH functioned more as a literal vortex rather than mere "music" per se. And that ominousness only began to grow...
At long last, OMEGAVORTEX reveal their long-awaited first full-length, appropriately titled Black Abomination Spawn. Relentless, devastating, aggressive, lightning-fast, oppressive, earth-shattering: all these adjectives apply here, with perhaps the most apt phrase being "eviscerating the firmament." Verily, OMEGAVORTEX are rooted in the ancient alchemy of vintage black/death, drawing equally from the likes of Necrovore, Altars of Madness-era Morbid Angel, Florida's Incubus, Possessed, Repulsion, Sadistik Exekution, Profanatica, and classic Sarcofago, but sounding like none of them; indeed, their abominations of desolation are entirely their own. As such, their songwriting takes on a tendrilous aspect, enrapturing the listener in unshakeable, irrevocable oblivion - but clearly with a destination in sight. The blackest cosmic abyss...guided by eerily hummable, malevolent melody.
