Now that summer is winding down and the European festivals are all but over, bands are starting to make their way back to the USA again! My first show of the fall season happened to be Amorphis, Dark Tranquillity, Moonspell and Omnium Gatherum at The Forge in Joliet, IL. What a kick ass lineup!
Getting things kicked off with a bang were Omnium Gatherum. I’ve heard of these guys before, but I have never seen them live. I’ll be honest, I’m very glad I got to see them! Their style of “Adult Oriented Death Metal” is right up my alley. On top of that, from the photography perspective, these guys were a hell of a lot of fun to shoot! You’ll see what I mean in the gallery below.
You can catch Omnium Gatherum on tour here in the USA through October 14th. Their new album, The Burning Cold, was just released on August 31st. It’s killer! Read our review of the album here, and pick it up at a show!
