For many years, I looked at Omnium Gatherum as just one of the many, second-tier melodic death metal bands from Finland. Musically competent, but struggling to attain to the level of their peers such as Insomnium, Rapture, or Amorphis. Then New World Shadows was released in 2011 and found me changing my tune. It saw the band coming into their own, with confidence and composition finally coming together to create something special. This brings us to their most recent release, Beyond, which has quickly become my favorite release by OG.

Everything that made NWS a standout offering is present here so there should be no worries on that front from long-time fans. Their atmospheric brand of doomy, proggy melodic death metal has never sounded better. In fact, I do have to complement the artwork in painting a perfect picture of the album. The brighter colors and view of the ocean tides coming in give a serene beauty that the guitars and keys work together to build throughout the disc, yet there is some feel of gloom to the art as well with the omnious clouds hanging about. I'm no art major but I find it interesting and it stands out when compared to the usual "metal" artwork we are all accustomed to.

Omnium Gatherum's biggest strength is their ability to craft absolutely gorgeous melodies that ensnare the listener with their beauty without falling into more 'commercial'-sounding and having enough strength to induce involuntary headbanging. Opening instrumental "Luoto" gives a good forshadowing of the atmosphere to come and draws the disc's biggest similarity to their kinsmen Insomnium. "New Dynamic" then kicks things well into speed with it's thrashy riffing and subsequent slowing into a more progressive, atmospheric, and dare I say, pretty chorus.

Every once in a while you get to experience a phenomenal work of musical excellence. These are the kind of albums you wish you could hear for the first time again and again. "Beyond" is one such gem and the album of the year 2013 for me. This album is my first foray into the musical works of "Omnium Gatherum" and I am Beyond impressed!!

The art work is tastefully done. Doesn't exactly scream death metal. This here is melodic death metal as it should be done,with a very strong emphasis on melody and atmosphere. The music is at the same time sad and uplifting.Keyboards and subtle guitar harmonies lay down a beautiful atmosphere of melancholy.There is some tremendous guitar work on this albums with some beautiful and sensitive lead melodies.The vocals is mostly harsh and clean singing is used to suit the mood changes of the songs.

Every song is well crafted - dipped in the icy cold waters of some remote Finnish lake, freeze dried in an even icier blast of chilly mountain wind to get your shivers on and finally the rays of the sun peek through from behind dark clouds to give you the warmth you were so longing for - a sense of hope and peace amongst all the despair.I can listen to this album end to end - even the into isn't throwaway. It is a great mood setter to get you into this amazing body of music.My iTunes library lists play counts at over 25 for all songs except -"Nightwalkers" - the only song I can't get into it. Barring that, this album is a masterpiece of melo death and the very best in metal music that I have heard in a long time.

If you liked New World Shadows, you will also like this album. In my opinion New World Shadows showed a maturation and increased melodic sophistication from previous albums. Beyond is almost like a continuation of New World Shadows. In my opinion, Beyond is one of the greatest albums ever made. If you like in In Flames, Dark Tranquility and Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum is right up your alley!

If you are a melo-death fan than I highly recommend this album! Even if you are not, still you should give this album a try, you just very well may become a fan of this genre. Omnium Gatherum created some amazing music I enjoy over and over again. You should buy this album you will not regret it!

If you like insomnium or dark tranqility youll love this. I saw them on tour with DT recently and I hate to say it they stole the show.

Finland is known for its great music, but I never thought it could be so beautiful; if you like melodic death metal, you'd probably like this album.

I've been a fan of melodic death for awhile (since late 90's). Lately the genre has been getting rather stale, save a few bands like Scar Symmetry and Insomnium. I heard about these guys when New World Shadows came out and was really happy with that album. I kind of downloaded this one on a whim, because I wasn't huge into them, but liked them a lot. But, I'm always excited when OG comes up on my rotation. There is something refreshing about their style that I can't exactly put my finger on.

I've probably casually listened to this whole album (all the songs are "listeners") about 15-20 times now, and the songs are ingrained in me even more than they were with NWS. It's the most natural and catchy sounding music, and so well-produced. Some parts are so epic / awesome / bad-a$$ sounding that I'm like, "Wow, this is just fantastic!" This album came up and smacked me on the side of the head after a few listens. Since this album, I'm wondering what I've missed with their pre-NWS stuff. Currently investigating....
