AT THE PLATES Announce Upcoming Album Omnivore


Death metal’s culinary conjurers AT THE PLATES recently completed their sophomore full-length album and it’s ready to launch from your plates to your ears! Omnivore, the follow-up to 2020’s Starch Enemy, will be released January 5,2024 on physical and digital formats. A deluxe edition, which contains two additional bonus tracks, will be available exclusively on Bandcamp. 

Tony Rouse comments:
“Omnivore is inspired by my own personal life experiences. Several years ago I experienced some massive complications with my health, and it forced me to re-examine my lifestyle choices. While I don’t think people should cut themselves off from anything, I think it’s also important to live your life in balance, for various reasons.”

Take a generous helping of Gothenburg’s 1990’s death metal, add two cups of Floridian death metal, one and a half tablespoons of New York death metal, and finally a teaspoon or two of dissonant black metal popularized by DEATHSPELL OMEGA. Stir together, set in the oven at 666 degrees for 20 minutes, and voila! You’ve got yourself an idea of what to expect when listening to AT THE PLATES. The upcoming full length Omnivore takes a slightly more serious approach from the band’s previous releases. The central theme of the album is ‘you are what you eat’ while still retaining their brutal sound and delivering light-hearted lyrics. 

Today, the band unveil the album’s first single “Kitchen Gone” and you can listen to it here:

AT THE PLATES was founded by Tony Rouse in 2018 with one goal in mind: to combine his love of good food with his love of great death metal. While originally an instrumental project with the release of the Garden Salads of Grief EP in 2018, AT THE PLATES began incorporating lyrics and themes into the music, culminating with the release of their full-length debut, Starch Enemy, in 2020. Starch Enemy was well received and featured on Bandcamp’s official website – Bandcamp Daily. Now, AT THE PLATES has returned from the culinary depths with a brand new line up to deliver its next course…Omnivore: a tour de force of cuisine-based tales set to the backdrop of blistering death metal. Whether you’ve got a craving for death metal or just a nice plate of grub, AT THE PLATES has you covered.
