Omnium Gatherum announced their new EP, Slasher, is set to arrive on June 2nd via Century Media Records. The EP features four tracks, mixed by Jens Bogren and mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios. Slasher includes a cover version of the 80s classic “Maniac” and marks the first studio recordings with new guitarist Nick Cordle. To give fans a taste of what’s to come, Omnium Gatherum has released the title track, “Slasher,” along with a video produced by Coldstore Productions. 


Vocalist Jukka Pelkonen comments: 

“A powerful fast song with a message like a plea to oneself! The darkness within can be an ally or an enemy. You are both the hunter and the hunted! ‘Slasher’ is also the title of our upcoming EP. This bad boy delivers two more OG songs and a furious cover. For now, check out the rippings of ‘Slasher’!”


Guitarist Markus Vanhala adds:

 “Hello from OG HQ! We’ll serve you a snack in between album cycles – it’s called ‘Slasher’, it’s an EP and it rocks! This release is a two-sided coin: A-side is presenting our new guitar hero and team player on the other side of the Atlantic, Mr. Nick Cordle (who joined the band right after our ‘Origin’ release); B-side is presenting two older songs which were recorded already during the ‘Origin’ sessions and aimed to release as digi-singles (but here they are on vinyl and CD too now finally). Enjoy!”
