OMOPHAGIA, a name relating to the consumption of raw flesh, unleashed their eleven-track, sophomore release, “In The Name Of Chaos”, on April 15th, 2016. The record was tracked at the band’s own studio in Switzerland, mixed and mastered at Hertz Studio in Poland (Decapitated, Vader, Behemoth, Hate etc.) and was promised to be their fastest, heaviest and most brutal output to date.
OMOPHAGIA came into existence in December 2006 and self-released their Devouring Raw Flesh demo one year later. The recording reaped the critical acclaim of the extreme metal underground and led to various live club shows as well as festival spots nation-wide and abroad opening for the likes of Morbid Angel, Kataklysm and Keep Of Kalessin. Of their appearance at Metal Fest 2008 Gryphonmetal.ch reported, “what impressed me was the big intensity and force of the music and the nervous guitars. Hammering, flexible and violent enough to warm up the fest,” while Metalunderground.at gushed of their performance at Metal Camp 2009, “OMOPHAGIA played the most brutal death metal with surprisingly lot of melodies. It’s a great thing considering the big competition in this genre. These guys don’t have to hide at all.”
At the close of 2009, OMOPHAGIA recorded their Guilt By Nescience debut. Mixed and mastered at Hertz Studio in Poland and released in 2011, the record earned the approval of Metal Hammer Magazine who awarded the offering “Demo Of the Month” status hailing, “brutal blasting drums meets massive, buzzing riffs, framed by soulful leads, rounded off by classic deep-growled vocals. Rhythmical variability and a well-balanced sound make Guilt By Nescience a record for friends of brutal sounds on a technical high level.” Elsewhere Metal Factory called it, “a real revelation,” further elaborating, “That’s how the album sounds: uncompromising, heavy but warm-hearted in some way. …solid, brutal, and awesome!” OMOPHAGIA continued to pillage European stages before the resurrection of their own studio for the ease and comfort of forging follow-up releases.
Continuing to support their 2016 Unique Leader debut In the Name of Chaos, Swiss death metal group OMOPHAGIA have announced that they will be taking part in this year’s “Atonement II” European tour alongside the mighty Immolation, Full of Hell, and Monument of Misanthropy. The tour, which features OMOPHAGIA from the 15th – 27th of March, will see this devastating lineup crushing audiences throughout a large portion of mainland Europe.
