Omnium Gatherum have dropped a video for their cover of the iconic ’80s song “Maniac” from the Flashdance film. The song is part of their Slasher EP, set to arrive on June 2 via Century Media Records. The band has also asked fans to vote for their preferred song and style choices for future releases. Coldstore Productions produced the video.


Vocalist Jukka Pelkonen comments:

“This classic pop song is shapeshifting into the Omnium Gatherum style of modern melodic death metal blast. Here is something to dance and headbang to in summertime!”


Guitarist and clean vocalist Markus Vanhala adds: 

“I heard it from the start with this classic ’80s banger — that it had all the usual OG elements there. Our band just had to play this and turn this into an OG song! Get your upcoming summer spiced with this one and it’s gonna be a good one!”
