Canadian progressive post-metal trio Omen Astra will unleash their towering debut full-length, »The End Of Everything«, on May 19th via Hypaethral Records (Canada), Protagonist Music (US), and Moment Of Collapse (Europe), today unveiling the record’s second single, »The City That Burns«, and preorders.

Featuring members of The Black Maria (Victory Records), Spread The Disease, New Day Rising, and The Abandoned Hearts Club (Hydra Head Records), Omen Astra transports its listeners into the darkest depths of human existence through larger-than-life lyrical storytelling and an expansive heaviness influenced by the likes of Neurosis, Gojira, and David Bowie. Drawing from post-metal, sludge, anthemic hardcore, and incorporating a hint of the melodic sensibilities of Britpop, the trio creates music that is at once crushingly powerful and stick-in-your-head catchy. Aesthetically, they rely on a powerful simplicity that includes modern mandalas to convey large concepts, vastness, expansiveness, and universality.

Comments vocalist Christopher Gray on the band’s latest single, “»The City That Burns« is a song about powerless frustration, exhaustion and desperation – starting a new narrative around what it means to be free.”

Formed in Hamilton, Ontario in the fall of 2021, Omen Astra set out to create a dark and impactful metal experience, suffocating listeners in a vast sonic space before drawing them back to reality with powerful melodic sensibilities. After much trial and error, writing and rewriting, and painstaking attention to detail, multi-instrumentalist Dave Buschemeyer, vocalist Christopher Gray, and guitarist Trevor Dykstra recorded their debut LP »The End Of Everything«. The result is an album that is meticulous, cohesive, and evolved.

“»The End Of Everything« is absolute fire! It’s everything I expected and so much more. Having heard a few tracks in its infancy, it has been a pleasure to listen to how this album has developed and grown into a beast of a release. Filthy riffs coupled with diverse vocals and a ton of atmosphere, this is gonna turn a shitload of heads. Very refreshing and very heavy.” — Mike DiSalvo (Cryptopsy, Akurion, Coma Cluster Void, Infestation)
