Artists of all kinds, whether they are musicians, painters or writers, generally use their favorite media to exorcise their deepest fears: this is what we call art, which may or may not revive a similar anguish in us. Don't worry if you don't like the work of Kafka, Spinoza, Picasso or even Metallica... you just don't suffer from the same wound as the author.

Omnerod's work on "The Amensal Rise" is so rich and diverse that it is possible that it reminds some bands at one point or another. If one feels the presence of Psykup on 'The Amensal Rise', one wonders if the band didn't resurrect Jim Morrison on the intro of 'Towards The Core', to go towards Devin Townsend, Gojira or Opeth a few minutes later.

Nothing unusual so far in the world of contemporary metal. On the other hand, the band has sometimes the audacity to jazz and even rockabilly tracks ('Towards The Core'), and frankly it goes very well in the middle of completely crazy metal riffs. The brilliant 'Magnets' illustrates perhaps the best this duality, constantly abusing the listener during nearly 10 minutes between brutality and softness. The universe of the Belgians is so dense and eclectic that one could listen to the album in loop without ever turning in circle. Ironically, it is perhaps also there that lies the drawback of this production: it is sometimes difficult to immerse oneself completely in the world of Omnerod, so much the pieces are varied.

Nevertheless, the whole is catchy and resolutely modern, the group drawing its inspiration from multiple sources, metal first but not only. An album to discover, the adventure is guaranteed and the probability of boredom is close to zero.

OTHER REVIEWS
OBITUARY: Dying Of Everything (2023)
DEATH METAL - Obituary's "Dying Of Everything" is a Death Metal record as it was done in the 90's, punchy and hard-hitting but a bit too classic to really convince.
AUGUST BURNS RED: Death Below (2023)
METALCORE - "Death Below" allows August Burns Red to step out of his comfort zone a bit, even if not everything is perfect.
