Hungarian extreme groove metal pioneers Omega Diatribe have premiered the song “Stench Of Demise” with an outstanding music video ahead of their forthcoming fifth studio album “Deviant“.
The new album will be released on the 1st of December under the wings of Metal Hu Records, in an impressive 8-panel DIGIPAK CD and 2 types of vinyl editions.
Gergo Hajer, the band’s songwriter & guitar player commented of this new offering:
“Unfortunately, we and our families were not spared by the pandemic either, so we had to deal with many human losses recently. In this song, we were able to release these negative energies and process the grief. A few songs or records helped me a lot to get through the dark periods in my youth, but also to this day. I believe that this song (or even the whole record) can provide support to those who have gone through or will go through similar traumas in their lives. Deviant wasn’t a happy record at all, but we never had the goal to write happy music. Instead, it’s the deepest and most honest record we’ve ever released.”
Then Akos Szathmary the bass player & graphic designer continues:
“This is a topic that we try to avoid on a daily basis. For those who haven’t experienced it up close, it’s hard to get a feel for it, because it’s so unreal. Then it just happens to you and you stand there helpless, you have to accept that you can’t help. Unfortunately, death is inevitable for everyone and is constantly breathing down our necks. I don’t think we planned the main theme for Deviant this way, life just came and hit us in the back and took over. The graphics of the album cover are also based on passing away, on the pages of the 8-panel digipak we depicted the last moments of a human being’s life.”
Co-produced, mixed and mastered by the legendary producer Tue Madsen (Meshuggah, Suicide Silence, The Haunted, etc.) at Antfarm Studios in Denmark.
