RockmusicRaider Review - Sons ov Omega - Reign - Album CoverToday I would like to lose a few words on a fascinating and intriguing record. Something stuck between early Tiamat (the band), the dark reckoning of Moonspell and the hungry urges of Darkend. It boasts a gothic tinge, just enough to remind you of where it could be, yet it is not quite there. You will find dark hints of eternal nights, weird-headed gods and inklings of dark, bloody rituals. Of atrocious devilry in long forgotten cities. Ia! Ia! Cthulhu Fthagn! As they say, don’t they?

Sons ov Omega formed already back in 2012, but unchained their début full length album Reign only in 2017. Interestingly, the band features Tiamat Invictuz of Wormlight who already received some air time on RockmusicRaider earlier. Now, judging by the description of the band, it took them some considerable time (and effort) to harness their vastly diverse musical influences and differences. And by doing so, to produce a record encompassing all of those elements into some sort of a coherent amalgam.  [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!

Newsflash: Wormlight re-issue Bloodfields!

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Wormlight - Bloodfields - Album CoverDo you feel anger today? And I don’t mean frustration. I mean white-hot, seething anger? Well, I do. Then what better thing than to find a lava-drenched chunk of Melodic Black Metal to soothe it. Fight fire with fire in a sense, the kind of anger management every metal head can buy into wholeheartedly, right? And I found just the right medication in the 2016 re-release of Bloodfields, the 2nd EP of the Swedish Black Metal outfit Wormlight.

And why on earth are we featuring a re-release from last year? Well, first this is great, crunchy Black Metal with just the right hint at melody to keep it interesting. A short, but action-packed offering of dark riffs, soaring solos and screamy vocals that for sure will awake your head-banging urges. [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!
