SMOHALLA deliver what must be some of the most outlandish, unpredictable and mindfucking metal out there at the moment. Blending black metal, classical, avantgarde, electronica and a myriad of other expressions into a tapestry so rich, arresting and unique, preconceptions about what metal is supposed to be should be left at the door. OMEGA CENTAURI sound strangely puristic in comparison. That is not to say their hybrid of post rock, black metal, film music et al can be called anything but their own. These three lengthy pieces are just as amazing as anything we've come to expect from this enigmatic act.
Both Smohalla and Omega Centauri present a different aspect of modern black metal, trying to take the genre a step forward by simply playing with their heart and putting their feelings into their instruments. A really fitting combination tied in perfectly together like pieces of a puzzle. Tellur/ Epitome is a real experience that will surely make the listener embark into an astral journey. A real naissance...Try it. - Avantgarde Metal5/5
