Ahead of the release of their latest effort V, drone-doom duo OMMADON have unveiled Side-A of the record (containing the first half of I) exclusively with TERRORIZER. The ex-Snowblood pair aim to achieve sonic annihilation of the self in their perpetual quest for heaviness. The fifth effort from the band once again sees them producing raw, heavy doom in the forest in the highlands and makes for a truly unsettling and downright claustrophobic experience.
V was played and recorded live by Ommadon on The Hill Of Maud in the Scottish Highlands over the winter of 2012/13 and it was mastered by Billy Anderson (Eyehategod, Sleep, High On Fire).
The record will be released on 180g double gatefold vinyl, limited to 300 copies, and is now up for pre-order. The co-release is available from DRY COUGH RECORDS in the UK, BURNING WORLD RECORDS in The Netherlands and DOMESTIC GENOCIDE RECORDS in the USA.
Ommadon also have a string of live shows lined up for later this month, the band will play two shows in Scotland alongside Okus, Gaze and xSAXONx before linking up with Horse Latitudes and Coltsblood for five shows across England, which promise to be some of the heaviest of the summer.
