Omnizide are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine and plays a raw mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "NekroRegime" which will be released in December as a joint effort between Carnal Records and Daemon Worship Productions.
Bell sounds start off the album before going into a heavier direction which also utilizes a decent amount of morbid sounding melodies in both the riffs and guitar leads and after awhile they go into a very fast and raw black metal direction that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking.
Vocals are mostly grim black metal screams and the music has a lot of 90's second wave influences and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music also incorporates a great amount of death metal elements and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and one track also adds in a few seconds of clean playing before returning back to a heavier direction and the last track is very long and epic in length and also brings in a touch of Asian style music.
Omnizide creates a recording that is more focused on a 90's second w ave black metal style this time around while the influence of death metal is still present, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover war, murder and total death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Omnizide and if you are a fan of old school black metal with a touch of death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Return Of The Loving Dead" "Deathwomb" "Nekrmantik" and "The Devil In Me". 8 out of 10.
