New Om album coming soon

lineout.thestranger.com wrote:Polysyllabic dirge-metal duo OM will play Neumos Sept 17 (Lichens and Grouper round out an awesome bill). Portland's Emil Amos (Grails, Holy Sons) is OM's new-ish drummer. He helped bassist Al Cisneros record God Is Good, which comes out Sept. 29 on Drag City.

Check out the press release below for more info.

"GOD IS GOOD" SEPT. 29, 2009

Currently there are seventeen scheduled stops with more to be confirmed.

With their new recording, OM travel to places outside their usual parameters while still having a heavy, repetitive deeply philosophical sound.The band is reaching out further than they've gone before, implementing new instrumentation and truly showing off their musical range. Surprise is guaranteed; new colors and new light, plodding along with the never-ending riffs for which they are famed.

The album was recorded March 2009 by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio, Chicago.

OM is the duo of Al Cisneros (bass/vocals) and Emil Amos (drums). Al Cisneros formed OM in 2003 with drummer Chris Hakius, both founding members of the essential stoner-rock band of the 90s, Sleep. Hakius left the band in 2008, which makes the forthcoming Drag City release the first OM studio album since Emil has joined the group. There's no doubt that a duo of bass and drums is driven by rhythm, but OM channel this minimal instrumentation into sublime energy by rigorous design.

Oh man, there are no words for how excited I am. I own Conference on the Birds on CD and Pilgrimage on vinyl, I don't think that, next to Earth, I have any records which get spun as often as them. One of the most mesmerizing bands I know, by far. The combination of Al's floating vocals, tender bass and tribal drum is just mind-blowing. Their live concert was one of the highlights of my life!

A clip of "Thebes" is up on the myspace, and it sounds great. It sounds much more like a fuzzy conference of the birds, much better than Pilgrimage (Which I didn't care for).

y so hard on pilgrimage? ;-;

But fuck yeah, that sounds fantastic. It sounds like a variation on Flight of The Eagle. I hope it'll come out on a not-too-limited-vinyl-edition!
