ORM's self-titled debut album is a masterful display of the band's unique rocking take on epic melodic black metal, thematically illustrated by tales from a mythical cosmos of ancient times. The album consists of five ambitious, lengthy tracks produced by Lasse Ballade (Solbrud, Halshug) with artwork undertaken by Italian artist Paolo Girardi (Inquisition, Black Breath). The album's "Apotheosis" will be officially released as a digital single this Friday, February 24th, but the ten-minute-long opus has been revealed through an exclusive streaming at No Clean Singing. Offers the popular underground webzine, "The slow, slightly distorted, reverberating acoustic guitar melody that opens 'Apotheosis'is mysterious and haunting, opening the door to a different world than the one we see around us. But the music soon becomes powerful and intense, with heavy abrasive riffing joined by a deep thundering in the low end and harsh, bestial growls that rise in a boiling fury."
