On June 2nd, OMNIUM GATHERUM will release their new EP, Slasher, via Century Media Records. For a first preview of Slasher, the title track video (produced by Coldstore Productions) can be viewed on KNAC.COM HERE.

Jukka Pelkonen (vocals) comments: "A powerful fast song with a message like a plea to oneself! The darkness within can be an ally or an enemy. You are both the hunter and the hunted! Slasher is also the title of our upcoming EP. This bad boy delivers two more OG songs and a furious cover. For now, check out the rippings of "Slasher"!"

Markus Vanhala (guitars and clean vocals) adds: "Hello from OG HQ! We'll serve you a snack in between album cycles - it's called Slasher, it's an EP and it rocks! This release is a two-sided coin: A-side is presenting our new guitar hero and team player on the other side of the Atlantic, Mr. Nick Cordle (who joined the band right after our Origin release); B-side is presenting two older songs which were recorded already during the Origin sessions and aimed to release as digi-singles (but here they are on vinyl and CD too now finally). Enjoy!"

Pre-order Slasher now at: https://omnium-gatherum.lnk.to/Slasher-EPID - where the EP is available in the following versions:

  • Ltd. CD digipak
  • Black vinyl
  • Digital EP
Mixed by Jens Bogren and mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios, Slasher is modern melodic death metal of the highest caliber. This 4-track EP includes a cover version of the 80s classic "Maniac", plus the first studio recordings with new guitarist, Nick Cordle. After 25+ years, OMNIUM GATHERUM proves once again that they're still leading the pack!

Slasher track-listing:

  • "Slasher"
  • "Maniac" (Cover Version)
  • "Sacred"
  • "Lovelorn"
