Ævangelist - Omen Ex Simulacra 2xLP
Omen Ex Simulacra is a beast of a record - a record whose technicality doesn't get in the way of its menacing darkness and thick, haunting atmosphere. The claustrophobic feel of the record I can only compare to that of Portal's most recent works, but it's not quite that chaotic. Form and content do not do battle on these songs, as they might in the hands of less visionary or talented artists; in this case, they form a perfect gestalt of aura and expertise, making this record tough to compete with.
In lieu of my incessant babbling about how good this record is, I will direct you to the Debemur Morti Bandcamp page to stream it in full, or download it if you so choose. The digipack CD edition is available now, and the vinyl is just a few days away. Both can be ordered now from Debemur Morti. HINT: The gatefold 2xLP features two bonus tracks. Some pretty t-shirt packages are also available to order.
