Track By Tracks: Omnivide - A Tale Of Fire (2024)

The album opens with Clarity, a track that begins with a clean, mysterious-sounding intro and gradually evolves into a grandiose, heavy overture, before diving into full-blown death metal. Throughout the song, orchestral instruments support the heavy riffs, giving them a more melodic/epic aspect. Opulence then changes things up by being a more straightforward death metal song with a progressive edge, oozing with groovy brutality, aggressiveness and face-melting guitar solos. Desolate then takes a more progressive turn, being over 7 minutes long with many different parts ranging from clean acoustic guitars to brutal riffs, screams, choir and orchestra. It has many recurring musical themes throughout the song, gluing together what is otherwise a mostly non-repeating sequence of riffs. A Tale of Fire offers a pause to the listener with a beautiful and mystical intro composed of choir and orchestra, before veering into the most tech-death song of the album, full of fast relentless riffs that eventually end with another orchestral outro. Cosmic Convergence then takes the listeners to other galaxies with its melodic riffs that are heavy and technical yet invoke a sense of ethereal beauty, telling the tale of the end of the universe as we know it. Holy Killer is essentially an evil death metal symphony, full of evil and menacing riffs that threaten to drag the listener down to hell at every turn, and features a face-melting solo battle between guitar and synth. Then there is Death Be not Proud, a song with a technical and heavy beginning/ending that also features an extensive clean section in the middle, showcasing the more progressive side of the band. Finally, the album closer is Stoned Dragon, a tale about an angry dragon that tries to contain his emotions by getting stoned, but eventually loses self-control and burns down a village that betrayed him centuries ago. The music accurately portrays the various stages of the story, from slow gloomy riffs that portray the dragon in his cave, to melancholic and aggressive riffs that illustrate the various emotional states that the dragon goes through. The song ends with a slow, Pink Floyd like section as the dragon passes away from his wounds, which finally transitions into an epic section with choir and a guitar solo to signify the passage of the dragon from this plane of existence to the next.
