Omination - The Pale Horseman (2020)


Always keeping us on our toes, Canadian label Hypnotic Dirge Records always delivers something truly unique and engaging. Today we have Omination’s one-track EP “The Pale Horseman”. Clocking in at around 26 minutes, this one-song gargantuan contribution delivers tons of influences perfectly blended together to create one hell of a memorable and captivating experience.

As the brainchild of Fedor Kovalevsky, this outfit delivers a very emotional piece that slowly progresses from church-like spoken sections to Neurosis-like harsh screams and then some. While the central features are slow Doomy riffs and lush atmospherics, the way that other influences are weaved between is quite unique and engaging. Dramatic synths and crafty vocal arrangements perfectly complement weeping guitars lead way to weird experimentation around the half-way mark and close off with some old, old Septic Flesh/On Thorns I Lay Doom dreaminess.

For being only one track, “The Pale Horseman” unleashes tons of nostalgic feelings and combines them with crafty experimentation and unconventional elements. If you are looking for a weird and trippy Doom experience, Omination is a band to keep an ear out from. Seemingly a lot, the 26-minutes of music in this release will fly by quick, so make sure you are paying attention.
