We know, we know...there isn't a single piece of writing that's so tedious and filled with hollow clichés, shameless ego stroking and thinly veiled sales pitches as the dreaded band biography. In our case, lots of texts about the D.T. history from various stages of our 20-year old career can be found on the web, and even the official ones, penned by the record labels or ourselves, usually contain factual errors, half-truths and inaccuracies that didn't seem to matter much at the time.
Eventually we'll find the time to write an über extensive band bio that will make even the most ardent trivia geek salivate with glee. In the meantime, we let the music do the talking and recommend a quick session with Google or Wikipedia.
Another suggestion would be to purchase the "Exposures: In retrospect and denial" CD, which contains a lengthy essay about the band by noted music journalist Christopher Dick
Hailing from Finland, Omnium Gatherum is a band playing fierce death metal with breathtaking melodies and progressive originality for people in the metal field looking for something different that still is catchy. A band that truly walks it's own path proudly and shows some new exciting sides on identifiable character. A band of many directions and styles, some of them clearly visible while others were more unseen - namely working and keeping it all together under the moniker of melodic life-and-death metal and bastardizing it with various influences. Adult oriented death metal that it is!
Exmortus are an entity amongst themselves and their music, both complex and thoroughly hook-laden, refuses to lend itself to easy categorization. From their technical death-thrash riffage and surgically precise drumming to their neo-classical, twin virtuoso lead guitar attack, their appeal is vast. Fans of death metal, thrash, prog metal, traditional heavy metal and all true metal sub-genres alike enjoy having their craniums crushed by Exmortus.
Now partnered with the quickly-rising New York metal powerhouse Heavy Artillery Records, Exmortus prepare to take their metal domination worldwide with the release of "In Hatred's Flame" scheduled for July 2008. False metallers beware, Exmortus are heavily armed and they have come to destroy!
