Jukka Pelkonen (vocals) comments: “With Lovelorn one tale ends and another one begins. Despite we the fact that we will be touring to bring you guys music we love to be experienced live, our brains and spirits are summoning fresh meat from the highs and depths of the OG realm. New musical adventures await us all and we will be taking all of you on a high-speed ride to the streets fierce and unknown! ”
Markus Vanhala (guitars and clean vocals) adds: “”Lovelorn” is gothic flirtatious death metal ballad, which closes the Slasher EP cycle being the last nail in this releases coffin before the autumnal burials. By an accident and giving a bit more emotional or atmospheric side of OG, it’s a great pathway to the soon starting European tour where we are heading together with Paradise Lost, Primordial and Harakiri For The Sky – festival tour called ‘Ultima Ratio’, which we of course are looking forward to see all of you our great people. The video is filmed, edited, and visualized by our friend Janne Tamminen / Xarena from California. This time the project was quite special, as all band members weren’t even on the same continent, let alone nobody played at the same time. Back to the future and back indeed with Mr. Tamminen with his tricks and traps!”
Mixed by Jens Bogren and mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios, Slasher is modern melodic death metal of the highest caliber. This 4-track EP includes a cover version of the 80s classic “Maniac”, plus the first studio recordings with new guitarist, Nick Cordle. After 25+ years, Omnium Gatherum proves once again that they’re still leading the pack!
