Void Omnia are a Californian act that have been banging around since 2013, though it's only recently I stumbled across their debut demo. They work in a very American style that borrows from the Cascadian sound, only this is harsher and uglier than that would imply. The production has that rough demo quality to it, but it does nothing to hold back the melodic tremolo licks that lead this album, many of which are as gorgeous as they are vicious. The pace of the compositions varies from frenetic blasting to almost doomy crawls, but thanks to some sharp songwriting and a real grasp for mood, it never drags or feels disjointed in the slightest. For a demo, this is a highly impressive and professional release, and even six years later it perfectly does its job of making the listener want to hear more. Cold, aggressive, and stirring all the same, this is an old gem that shouldn't be overlooked.
