Omnium Gatherum’s “Sacred” Embraces Forgiveness

Melodic Death Metal band Omnium Gatherum have released their new EP, Slasher, via Century Media Records. Their newest visual offering for the song “Sacred” tells a tale of “discovering the hidden meaning that sets us free, as we overcome fear and embrace the power of forgiveness in a world where the echoes of our presence resonate everywhere.” The accompanying video was produced by Janne Tamminen (

Jukka Pelkonen (vocals) comments:

What is holy to you? What are the sacred things? This song dives into the values of life. If you don‘t stand for something you will fall for everything.

Markus Vanhala (guitars and clean vocals) adds:

We’ve pumped and stoked to have our new appetizer “Slasher” EP out for our people. Here’s also the newest single “Sacred”, which in my books have some hints of Judas Priest and Whitesnake and Survivor between the good traditional OG lines. We’ve been having a good start for the year before summer festivals with all that amazingly successful North American tour we just did, Finnish grammy nomination for “Origin” album and the two single releases getting people into the OG-world. That world will be ours!

Mixed by Jens Bogren and mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios, the Slasher EP includes a cover version of the 80s classic “Maniac”, plus the first studio recordings with new guitarist, Nick Cordle.
