The Omnific are a Melbourne based three piece a consisting of 2 bass players and a drummer, creating a unique new age / rock / metal sound. This is the band’s second EP, showing off an amazingly colourful collection of sounds and atmosphere!
The duel bass guitars bring out a very unique sound that is charged with energy and atmosphere. The moving slides seamlessly from intense industrial metal sounds to calm chilled out new age sounds and a fair bit in between. The basses bring out all sorts of interesting sounds full of character and colour!
‘Proem’ opens the EP in a out new age fashion. It quickly thrusts into top gear speeding along with great energy and life. ‘Objects de vertu’ has a subtle jazzy feel to it bringing in a cool chilled out vibe.
‘Bugbear’ shows off the exceptional range the band can achieve with their bass guitars, bringing out a cool mix of rocking and electronic style sounds. The title track follows in a similar fashion putting forward a mix of metal and new age sounds sounding like Metallica remixed by Mike Oldfield.
‘Ersatz’ is a short, sharp, and intense metal tune. Going for just under tow and half minutes the track blasts through with great power! The EP closes with the Mike Oldfield-esq epic ‘Sonorous Pt 2’
This is a very cool EP with 8 action packed tunes. The band have demonstrated amazing sounds can be created with just drums and bass guitars.
