Of Virtue - Omen

Now this one is a stunner. I know I don't normally stray into the realm of radio hard rock on this blog, but every once in a while an album really impresses you and this is one of them. Of Virtue are truly talented songwriters, and the multilayered masterpiece that is Omen is certain to capture the imagination. This is heavy radio friendly hard rock done right. There are hardcore and metalcore frills, impressive performances across all instruments and a clear story behind each of the songs that helps to make this truly compelling. 

Omen is a stunner because of how elegantly it distills so many of the undercurrents in the world of rock right now and manage to draw listeners in with the deeply impressive songwriting that defines this music. What makes this record such a delight to listen too is the depth of the production. The record has so many layers and the mixing job is some of the best I've heard all year. There is a very clear vision for the sound of this band and every one of these twelve tracks helps to build into that. It's hard to wrap your head around a band who are this level of talented and able to craft bombastic, far reaching songs that remain thrilling for the everyman. 

Of Virtue are a force to be reckoned with. Omen consistently proves that they are in a league of their own and witnessing them bring these songs to life is a delight. They understand what drives hard rock in 2023 and Omens is a veritable tour de force of all that it could, and should be. Of Virtue can't help but to thrill listeners and digging in deep to their compositions is certain to leave you too in awe of what's been crafted here.

Pre-order the album!
