Omnium Gatherum - Jukka
Talks About Grey Heavens by Dave Schwartz
Omnium Gatherum is a band that is
constantly on the road. That’s why it felt odd when I
sat with Jukka Pelkonen on their tour bus and discussed “Grey
Heavens.” The record has been out since February yet this is
the first time we’ve spoken with anyone from the band.
While I was sure they must have already completed one tour of
North America in support of the album, it turns out I was
wrong. Omnium Gatherum spent the first half of the year
touring Europe with a random date in Hong Kong.
“Grey Heavens” is a strong record and
Pelkonen was justifiably eager to talk about it. With
“Frontiers” and “Majesty and Silence” being my two favorite
tracks on the album, I was interested in learning more about
the record and how it all came together. Watch the video
and watch for Omnium Gatherum's tour.
