Omnivore is a group of death metal ragers, men raised by all that is heavy and destructive. Their new record Omnivore is the kind of release that sends hair flying and skulls banging. With a Carcass tinged attack this is a roller coaster ride of a death metal record, chock to the brim with explosive riffs, spiraling solos and some devastating, tortured growls. This is death metal, and by Odin is it good. This is not a record for the faint of heart, it is prone to scarring the uninitiated, to be blunt, if you want blood, you've got it.

One of the first things that will strike you about this record is the incredible bass line. You see on Omnivore the bass is given a certain power, a certain place in the mix, that makes the entire thing seem more exciting. It vastly increases the heaviness of the whole thing and in some places adds a nice rough and tumble rock and roll feel to the music. Furthermore, Omnivore know how to write a solid death metal song and their structures while not necessarily traditional definitely work. Another great side to this album is the sheer force behind the vocals. There is a sort of tortured attack here that makes the music deeply personal and very emotionally powerful.

Be warned my brothers, this album is filled with wild and crazy riffs, you may lose yourself in the storm. But that's all for the better. Omnivore is a blast to listen to from start to finish, these guys know how to set up a wonderful death metal atmosphere and encourage the listener to bang their heads for hours on end. I think that the future for Omnivore will be bright, especially if they manage to keep putting out top notch material like this. Raise the horns one and all, this is death metal band who are bringing it loud and proud.
