Edmonton's OMNIARCH Premiere Music Video 'Pathfinder' via TheCirclePit




Unleashing their debut self-titled album earlier this May, Edmonton progressive death metallers Omniarch are sharing with fans their new music video for the track 'Pathfinder' via its premiere on TheCirclePit's YouTube channel HERE.

The band adds:

"This song is about feeling what you love, doing what you love, and being who you truly are." 

A unique journey through history, mythology, imagination, and learning through introspection and reflection. Omniarch's seven-track full length is a composite of progressive and technical death metal, played by five seasoned musicians that bring an eclectic set of skills to the band. The Canadian quintet is recommended for anyone with an interest in melodic, technical, relentless death metal, especially fans of The Black Dahlia Murder, The Absence, and Arsis. 

Commenting on the album, the band had this to say:

"We hope fans of aggressive, progressive, and technical metal music will enjoy this one. We feel it's something new, but still within the realms of what we know and love. This debut album is our full, headlining set, and plays great in its track listing order. We are already working on an EP of all 7 string songs to follow, as well as working on another EP more indicative of our current sound/tuning. We released what we had up until now, and pride ourselves on our fecundity as a band. We have plenty of music coming down the pipe."

About:
Omniarch was formed from the ashes of two former bands, Netherward and This is War. Morgan Lambert (guitar), Mason Wilson (guitar), Jon Hofmann (bass), Mackenzie LaHaye (vocals), and  Henry Giesbrecht (drums) who had played gigs together in separate bands, had always entertained the idea of joining forces. Eventually, conditions allowed for the amalgamation of the two bands into a new and wholly different alloy of metal and formed the beginning of Omniarch.

Giesbrecht, the original drummer, added a new dynamic to the band with his fresh approach to metal song structures. Eventually, Giesbrecht moved on and made way for Sean Higgins to step in and make his own indelible mark on the band with his nuanced sense of rhythm and pace. The disparate and yet congruous influences have come together to showcase a truly unique and exciting band, full of opportunity.

Each Omniarch song starts with a collaboration between Wilson and Lambert to determine the riffs, which are then brought to the rhythm section where they are morphed into a  cohesive idea that is splattered with aggressive technical death metal vocals with themes surrounding history, fantasy/science fiction, and mythology.

Omniarch is just getting started, as of spring 2020 they have a fresh self-titled release out on May My 8th with plenty more music coming down the pipe. Watch out for them on the live circuit and take your chance to witness a compelling live show that challenges boundaries.

"Omniarch come our way from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and they don’t come timidly. Their formulation of technical and progressive death metal absolutely blazes with exuberant spirit, technical virtuosity, and turbocharged energy, while incorporating memorable melodic and atmospheric accents. It’s the kind of music that will likely find welcome among fans of such bands as Revocation, Inferi, and The Black Dahlia Murder. " - No Clean Singing

"Fire and fury with a really strong technical edge, Omniarch live and breathe their metal, choking all who share the same space.... Ursa Major is one hell of a closer. The drums and guitars taking the mood down to dark places, the vocals the sound of hellish noise in the shadows. Then out of the blue the band throw out an absolute beast of a guitar solo. It’s momentously heavy stuff." - Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life

"Ohn Cairn is brutal, death metal with shredding solos, and some cool melodic moments!" - Ghost Cult Mag

"The Canadian crew combines a technical and melodic sound not many newer bands achieve these days and it’s rather impressive." - Technical Music Review


"Omniarch have furnished us all with an excellent record." - Wicked Metal Review 

"an ambitious Melodic Death Metal act that are clearly reaching for an individual sound on their self-titled debut." - The Metal Crypt
