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.
