Random album


The Slovenian metal band DeathOmen was formed back in 1988 by vocalist/lyricist Marjan Macarol, whom guitarist Miha Gerzej soon joined. Drummer Tomaž Vovk and bassist Marko Štok followed a year later. At that time, they only recorded a few demo tapes, which they shared among friends, nothing official. Soon after that, they disbanded, and everything seemed to fall into oblivion. In 2018 Miha "The Navigator" Gerzej (Extreme Smoke 57, D.T.W., ex-Debakel, ex-Diarrhoea), Marjan "Mančo" Macarol and Tomaž "Master 'Boreas' Blaster" Vovk had an inner call and the right energy seemed to be flowing again.

Initially, they just wanted to play and create music, maybe record a couple of songs, but one thing led to another, the inspiration was on a top, and songs kept multiplying. Out of their purposeless and pure love for the music, their first (and hopefully not the last) album Above Holy Ground arose (you can read the review HERE). This dark sonic assault to the masses was self-released on 21 December 2020, and it's available on their Bandcamp page.

DeathOmen offers a somehow unique listening experience, where various metal genres coexist spontaneously in a darkened atmosphere the voice of "Mančo" is creating. Although DeathOmens' music is not and doesn't want to be burdened with genres, it'll probably appeal more to those into the old-school blackened thrash in the vein of early Kreator, Sodom, Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Venom. Yet there are to be found elements of doom, death and heavy metal, with occasional experimental tips.

Tomaž "Master 'Boreas' Blaster" Vovk

The lyrics are basically personal, pure poetry. Based on the music, the lyrics have been adapted just enough to make everything compatible. They emphasize human relationships, interpersonal relationships and relationships with the world, which has been hosting us for millennia. The exploiting of man as an energy nutrient and the control over humanity, which manages to keep this exploitation still going on, are also mentioned several times, directly or indirectly. This mutual existence is misunderstood, and the time for departure- the extinction of our civilization is very close. There is no more time for corrections, apologies, or salvation.

Miha "The Navigator" Gerzej


DeathOmen doesn't want to expose its inner massage in full. It's supposed to be personal, left for others to deal with it on their own.
