Omnium GatherumOmnium Gatherum - Talking Beyond
By Sara Lambeth and Dave Schwartz

Omnium Gatherum is a six-piece melodic death metal band from Finland.  Releasing four demos garnered the attention of Rage of Achilles Records where, in 2003, they released their first full length record, "Spirits and August Light."  Omnium Gatherum had established a memorable sound of catchy melodies, and a stable rhythm along with a lifelike taste of dirtiness. 

Omnium Gatherum released their second album, "Years In Waste,“ on Nuclear Blast records in 2004.  The album revealed a second side to the band as the music was more technical, more progressive and more sophisticated. 

But it wasn’t until their fourth album, "The Redshift," that Omnium Gatherum reached deeper into the death metal mainstream.  “The Redshift” was recorded at Sound Supreme and SouthEastSounds Studios during the spring of 2008 and it was mixed and mastered at Unisound Studio in Sweden by the legendary metal-mastermind Dan Swanö.  The release consolidated the bands fan base. 

Having released multiple albums, Omnium Gatherum are veterans of many tours of Europe and the world. Now, with the release of their sixth album, “Beyond,” Omnium Gatherum is on their first tour of America. DaBelly's own Sara Lambeth spoke with Jukka Pelkonen (vocals) and Markus Vanhala (guitar). Pelkonen and Vanhala discussed the release of "Beyond," their latest tour and as well as the re-release of their classic album, "The Redshift."
