One of the bigger surprises of the year comes courtesy of OMEGA CENTAURI - a two man project based in the UK and Belgium and featuring members of SANCTUS NEX, ORPHEUS and MONADS. Blending black metal, ambient, doom and a plethora of styles into one monumental whole, Universum Infinitumis an entity in its own right, standing far above and outside the mundanity of what is often referred to as "extreme metal". OMEGA CENTAURI have delivered a stunning effort of atmospheric avantgarde / post black metal.
The blending elements from black metal, jazz-fusion, ambient, and post rock could easily have ended in a confused and dull mess, but Universum Infinitum is rather the opposite; clear and interesting. Highly recommended. - Avantgarde Metal5/5
