The Sticky Ones are on the prowl again. Those named after the 1919 Boston Flood disaster that drowned, injured, or otherwise killed scores of people in a tsunami of sticky, sugary goo.

Morass of Molasses already got on our radar with their debut These Paths We Tread. An album that surely excels with its sticky sludge and sappy, somewhat slow-motion delivery of all types of Stoner-esque delights.

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Omega Diatribe - Abstract Ritual - Album Cover

You know, I like a swagger in a band. And if they can produce good metal AND they have a good cover story to boot, like the Hungarian Groove Metal outfit Omega Diatribe, then it is almost sold. Of course, the quality of their tune will take precedence – after all the music counts, not the posture. 

Their story?

A contract has been passed between humans and some psycho aliens about the limited use of Earth’s resources. This is called Omega Diatribe. Once time’s up only open-minded people can survive this transition.
