Omb – SwineSong

Omb-SwinesongProgressive Israeli metallers, Omb have released their self-produced debut, SwineSong. Middle-Eastern acoustic leanings tailored with blackened thrash are the order of the day in this schizophrenic body of work.

It’s their pushing of the creative boundaries that proves to be the album’s downfall. Tossing everything into the cauldron does not a good soup make. There are moments that do excite but while the right ingredients may be present, as an album it lacks the cohesion that defines great progressive music.

 

Solid musicianship is displayed throughout and Omb has potential to succeed with a “less is more” approach for future releases.
