Omnium Gatherum Begin Work On Fourth Album

Finland's OMNIUM GATHERUM issue the following update:

"Howdy folks!"

"Time has come for the fourth OG album recordings, as we´ve been more productive than ever and the new stuff have been written in a few months and this is really new way of acting for OG! Working title for the new album at the moment is Red Shift Mystery..."

"We've been also doing quite a lot of pre-production this time and this is also the new way for us. So, we´ll be afraid about what´s coming up with this next chapter - it might even become a good album!? The third new way of acting with this OG record is that the album will be done in three different studios; drums will be done at Sound Supreme studio, other recordings will be done at good ol´ local & loyal SouthEastSounds studio and mixing and mastering will be done in Örebro, Sweden at Unisound studio with the Dan the man Swanö! I already met Mr. Swanö this weekend and had a 'business-beer' with the man and everything seems really cool with this co-operation." More...

Finnish melodic death metallers OMNIUM GATHERUM have announced the addition of singer Jukka Pelkonen (a.k.a. "J") from the band called ELENIUM as their new frontman. "Jukka and other ELENIUM dudes have been our dear friends for a really long time, so it seemed very natural choice for us to ask Jukka for his services — in fact he was the ONLY one we ever thought and aske," the band write in a statement. "The rehearsals with Jukka have gone really well and in good spirit, and he has brought much-needed new life to the band with his aggressive growling vocal style and new ideas. We hope that all of you give Jukka a fair chance to show his skills and talents and then draw your conclusions. At least we, the OG crew, are amazed about this and have again strong faith to OG's future and new stuff. We are not trying to fill [former singer] Antti's [Filppu] shoes cause it's not possible. Jukka will do his own stuff and write his own lyrics, he has our full backing and support. The writing and demoing of the new material is going on and the new stuff will be...... HHEAVY!"

Jukka will make his live debut with OMNIUM GATHERUM on July 11 at the Tuska Open Air Metal Festival after-party at Gloria in Helsinki, Finland.

ex-Omnium Gatherum Frontman Says He Was Kicked Out

Former OMNIUM GATHERUM vocalist Antti Filppu has sent the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET regarding his departure from the group

"Nothing dramatic, just wanted to correct an error concerning my departure from OMNIUM GATHERUM. I did not leave the band. They wanted to continue without me, and there were no negotiations about it. Nobody asked me, they simply told me I'm out. Even though this is perfectly fine, I saw no crisis with the OMNIUM GATHERUM future like the other members saw, I would have been very glad to be a part of it."

OMNIUM GATHERUM are currently writing and demoing material for their new album, tentatively due late 2006/early 2007 via an as-yet-undetermined label. The band, who were previously signed to Nuclear Blast Records, recorded a five-song pre-production demo at Woodbine Garden studio in Pyhtää, Finland in January containing the tracks "City Red Light", "Remember The Frozen", "Neither Dead Nor Alive", "My Hands Were Tied" and "Das Wegrecht".

OMNIUM GATHERUM's latest album "Years in Waste", was released in the U.S. in March 2005 via Nuclear Blast.
