Israel has produced a handful of quality bands over the years, but none
quite like Omb; in fact no band anywhere really sounds a lot like this band
(though a kindred spirit might be Canada's
is seriously eclectic, avant-garde progressive metal
(just check out the song titles for an idea of how out-there this band is),
with instruments and ideas all over the place.
The guys transition from bombastic grandeur to quiet interludes in a flash,
all while preserving song structure rather than mindless piecing together
of riffs and ideas.
Vocalist Davidavi Dolev deserves a special mention, as his vocals
are as diverse as the music, truly an incredible performance.
Not sure what kind of exposure this band is getting or whether they can
make it to the worldwide stage, but SwineSong
is a mighty impressive
album that deserves a listen.
