Finland’s Omnium Gatherum have just set their sights on a return to North America in early 2022 in support of their latest album, Origin. Joining them each night will be Allegaeon and Black Crown Initiate, making for a juggernaut of a death metal bill.
“HELLO THERE METAL PEOPLE! We have amazing news for all of you,” exclaimed the melodic death metal veterans in a press statement.
“OG will be hitting the road again in North America,” they continued, “We are super excited to be able to come back and see all of you awesome bastards again — and, of course, play the hell out of the new album for you. The tour will kick off in New York on February 26th and will go on across the continent until March 27th. We will be joined by two great bands, Allegaeon and Black Crown Initiate! See ya on the road.”
The 27-date trek will span the aforementioned calendar dates as the three groups traverse the United States and Canada. While the lineup features a trio of death metal bands, it’s still quite the varied bill with Omnium Gatherum occupying the melodic end, Allegaeon, who will soon be releasing new music in anticipation of the follow-up to 2019’s Apoptosis, straddling the tech/prog line and Black Crown Initiate, who put out Violent Portraits of Doomed Escape last year, embodying full-on progressive death metal.
