Omnivore are a band from Italy that plays a very old school form of death/thrash metal and this is a review of their self titled 2014 album which was released by Unspeakable Axe Records.
"Intro" starts up the album with clean and dark sounding guitar playing and a few seconds alter heavy and melodic guitar riffs along with bass guitars and drums kick in and then going into a faster direction along with some blast beats.
"Dead" which is also the first official song on the album opens up with spoken word parts along with some samples before adding in some heavy and old school death/thrash metal guitar and bass riffs as well as some blast beats from the drums being adding in screams, growls and blast beats as well as alternating between mid paced and fast parts and towards the end there is a brief use of guitar solos and leads being utilized.
"Trust" begins with drum beats as well as some heavy and melodic guitar and bass riffs and then the music speeds up a bit along with some screams and growls as well as alternating between mid paced and fast parts and as time goes on by their is a brief sue of back up shouts and guitar leads.
"I Hope The War Comes" opens up with heavy guitar riffs as well as some bass guitars and drums and you can also hear some melody in the music before speeding up and adding in vocals and the music also alternates between mid paced and fast sections and towards the guitar solos and leads are added into the music.
'Hypochrist" kicks in with spoken word parts and samples and a minute later old school metal and guitar riffs kick in along with some drums before going into a faster direction as well as bringing in vocals and blast beats and during the last minute guitar solos and leads are added into the music.
"Nothing More Than Dust" hits in with guitar leads that come in and out of the music and riffs as well as some drums and bass guitars before going into a faster direction along with blast beats and vocals and after awhile the music starts to alternate between slow and fast parts as well as getting more melodic, halfway through the song sounds of nature as well as classical guitars make their presence known.
"Omnivore" which is also the title track of the album begins with bell sounds before adding in heavy and melodic sounding guitar riffs as well as some drums before speeding up adding in bass guitars, vocals and a small amount of blast beats and after awhile the music starts to alternate between slow and heavy parts as well as adding in guitar solos and leads.
"Arise" which is the last song on the album as well as a Sepultura cover starts off with fast, heavy guitar and bass riffs along with some drums before adding in vocals and after awhile distorted guitar effects and melody are added into the music as well as alternating between mid paced and fast parts along with a small amount of guitar solos and leads.
Song lyrics cover war, anti religion themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and old school sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Omnivore are a very great sounding old school death/thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dead" "Hypochrist" and "Omnivore". RECOMMENDED BUY.
