Finnish melodic death metal mainstays Omnium Gatherum are mere weeks away from dropping their seventh LP, Grey Heavens, and their timing is impeccable: it’s cold as balls out there. To celebrate, the boys have released a new video for the album’s second single, “Frontiers,” and we have the exclusive U.S. premiere. Here’s what guitarist Markus Vanhala had to say about making the video:
The “Frontiers” video presents a different seaside view of our beautiful hometown of Kotka, Finland than our previous, nature-fueled video. This time, we filmed inside an old, abandoned tank in the harbor on a freezing winter Saturday. It was really dusty and cold in there!
“Frontiers” is a trademark up-tempo Omnium Gatherum song: aggressive death metal bred with melodic mountain views, with some spicy Guitar Hero moments in between. We’re coming to deliver this song to you live later this year, so be aware and beware!
Grey Heavens is out February 26 on Century Media Records. You can pre-order here.
