35. I, OMEGA

Los Angeles, CA quintet I, Omega deliver a technically proficient five-track modern metal release with THE RAVENOUS. Sharing stylistic qualities with the likes of Protest the Hero, Periphery, and August Burn Red, this unit showcases a dexterous command of their instruments as well as a genuine progressive mindset that keeps both the guitarist’s nimble fingers (“Martyrs”) and the rhythm section’s constant shifts busy and adventurous without trudging into inaccessibility. Bolstered by a versatile vocalist skillfully skating between histrionic singing and harsh screams while the band continuously ups the ante by pumping out dazzling song structures exploding with acrobatic interplay, I, Omega exhibit all of the tools needed to make a splash on the ever-crowding forward thinking melodic metal front. -Mike SOS
