A Fitting Revenge drops Omnipresence July 1 2022

 

The Rochester, New York death metal band A Fitting Revenge is set to release their second full length album “Omnipresence” July 1, 2022. This multi-dimensional metal band really showcases their talents on this release moving flawlessly between melodic instrumental bits to blistering paced riffs. This album covers it all.

This album begins with an ethereal interlude on “The Performance” that introduces the listener to the band’s musical prowess. This also highlights the production skills of Jack Daniels (War of Ages).  As the music builds up speed, the listener is led in to aggressive guitar riffs and griding vocals pausing only for a few seconds at a time to deliver some crisp, clean lead guitar riffs.

 The first single off “Omnipresence” is “The Overthrow”. This song creeps up on you for the first 15 to 20 seconds then slaps you in the face with the full force of their power. Towards the middle of the track they slow it down into melodic guitar riffs only to ramp it back up to a climactic end. 

 

 

 My standout tracks are the last three on the album. “The Monarchy Pt.1” , “The Monarchy Pt.2” and “The Monarchy Pt. 3”. Pt.1 is a mostly instrumental track. The vocals that are there seem to take a backseat to the music in an almost ghost-like manner. Pt.2 hits hard and heavy. The vocals are now upfront and the guitars and drums are hard and fast but yet still, the melodic lead guitar shines through. Pt.3 slows it back down, sort of. The guitars are now slower and more methodical yet the drums are still going full tilt. This works incredibly well to set the tone for the end of the album. The vocals are, however, still in your face as if they didn’t want it to end quite yet.

This is a technically sound album with great production and incredible musicians. If you are a connoisseur of death metal or even hard rock music. This is probably right up your alley. Do yourself a favor, pick up this album or add it to your streaming list. I, personally, hope they announce a tour soon because I think they will be incredible live. Who knows? Maybe I will see you in the pit!

 

Overall, I give this 8/10 stars.

Photographer of about 10 years, I have been shooting concerts for about 8 of those years. I started to get serious about concert photography about 5 or 6 years ago and now try to shoot as many as I can. I shoot mostly rock but, have done some country and big band stuff. I love music and since I am nowhere close to being a musician, this is a way I can be a small part of what, in the words of Henry Rollins, "gets me through the highs, the lows and everything in between".
