Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of OMEGA INFINITY, the new project of Xen from Australian prog masters NE OBLIVISCARIS and Tentakel P., known from extreme metal outfit TODTGELICHTER.
Fuelled by unchained aggression and rage, this project sets out to surprise all fans of their main bands, with ferocious blastbeats and furious vocals, interwoven with menacing, spherical guitar lines set before an ominous, cosmic backdrop.
Xen comments: “Omega Infinity is an outlet for both T. and myself, a vessel for our darker explorations, and Season of Mist ultimately was the best choice to help us on our journey. Signing with them was an easy decision considering their long-term ability to grow unique bands, allowing them to flourish with integrity and to be themselves. Also, NE OBLIVISCARIS has been working with them for years, and so I’ve a good relationship and understanding how they are…that familiarity will help when we’re lost in space.”
Tentakel P. adds: “Season of Mist have been doing what they do for a very long time and raised the bar for many extremes – not only metal – with their professionalism. As they also served as the breeding place and birth ground for many ground-breaking acts that helped to form my own musical identity for decades, we feel honored to be part of the roster and aim to bring new extremes to the label!
We will see you in The Deep Dark Void!”
AN ODE TO THE COSMIC VOID
OMEGA INFINITY: two words that embody the unimaginable blackness beyond the known universe, the endless cycle of birth and death, of creation and destruction.
Founded as a studio project by Tentakel P. in 2018, after his long-term band – German Progressive Extreme Metal outfit, TODTGELICHTER – was put on ice indefinitely following their final performance in 2016; OMEGA INFINITY’s purpose was to serve as an outlet to his own musical and conceptual vision, something that would have been deemed too dark and aggressive for his main band. Joining him is a vocalist who was not only able to convey the extreme notion and versatility required for this, but who also has similar limitations in his own main band, Xen of Australian Progressive Metal shooting stars, NE OBLIVISCARIS.
With guest voices of Christian Kolf (VALBORG, OWL, ABSOLUTUM a.m.m) and Marta J. Braun (TODTGELICHTER), Tentakel and Xen have created something very different and drastically darker than their respective main bands. Music firmly rooted and inspired by Black Metal of the 90‘s with furious blast beats and cacophonous, spherical guitar lines, the main concept and lyrics transcend the limitations of this style as OMEGA INFINITY stands for something that is far greater, ancient or powerful than any god or demon humanity has invented; the darkness between galaxies – the equivalent of cosmic darkness – the Nothing beyond existence – The Deep Dark Void.
