about

It's apparent from the get-go - Omotai is a band that know what the fuck they want to accomplish and how to knock it out. Their debut EP Peace Through Fear - reputedly recorded and mixed in a scant two days - is a swirling mass of high-speed forehead smashery. Following two US tours and supporting slots for The Sword, Yob, Dark Castle, Thrones, Big Business and countless others, Omotai are preparing for the early fall release of their follow-up LP Terrestrial Grief, soon to be available through metal up-and-comers The Treaty Oak Collective.

The songs are brief, frenetic explosions of sound, a deft blend of grindcore, sludge, progressive noise-rock, math metal and whatever else happens to be blowing the band's skirt up at the time, all of it reaching your ears sopping with distortion and twisted to superior volume. Melissa Lonchambon Ryan's omnipresent bass rumble lines up with Sam Waters' relentless guitar riffery like a taloned fist to a shredded glove, while Anthony Vallejo's incomparable percussive bloodlust feels more like machine-gun-equipped battalions bent on sheer attrition. All three members share vocal duties seamlessly, razored shrieks punctuated by Ryan's wispy alto, the lyrics an outlandish cocktail of drunken nihilism and avant-garde sci-fi. A tough band to pigeonhole, granted, but definitely one worth seeking out.

Track Name: Lurching Away
When we see, eye to eye
Almost dead
Will there be love, in our eyes?
Headed down
Crawling through this wreckage
No point to continued existence
Have we seen eye to eye?
Nothing can
Is there love in our eyes?
Fix us now
Track Name: Hollow Innards
Exhumed, displaced
Come back too late

No meat will fill
Hollow innards
I'm empty still
Hollow innards
