SPLIT TOUR CD WITH LEGION OF ANDROMEDA


The heavy drone-doom of Ommadon and relentlessly primitive sludge of Legion Of Andromeda (Japan) joined forces to demolish decaying urban centres across England and Scotland in June and July 2016. To commemorate this destructive occasion, At War With False Noise released a full-length split CD, 'Crumbling Existence'. This includes one mesmerising 36 minute journey into darkness from Ommadon ('Fundamentalist Drone') and three new pummelling hammers to the face from Legion of Andromeda.


'Fundamentalist Drone' Recorded by Ommadon

Mastered by James Plotkin

OMMADON + LEGION OF ANDROMEDA UK TOUR 2016



We are taking the heavy drone-doom on the road again in June/July 2016. This time we join forces with the relentlessly primitive sludge of LEGION OF ANDROMEDA (Japan) to demolish decaying urban centres across England and Scotland. To commemorate this destructive occasion, AT WAR WITH FALSE NOISE are releasing a tour-exclusive, full-length split CD, 'Crumbling Existence' (mastered by James Plotkin). This will include one mesmerising 36 minute journey into darkness from Ommadon ('Fundamentalist Drone') and three new pummelling hammers to the face from Legion of Andromeda. 

This is going to be heavy.

OMMADON LP has been unleashed


OMMADON Self-Titled LP is available from:





OMMADON is available for PWYW download on BANDCAMP.


Ommadon is self-titled because this is what we set out to be from the beginning. This is not entertainment. This is not easy listening. Ommadon is pure and primitive heaviness. Ommadon is the outcast, the fallen angel, the darkness. Ommadon is the darkness which we are told to fear, to avert our eyes and cower from, to candy coat the suffering, the decay, and the death which give life meaning. Ommadon is the intolerable agony, the paralysing misery, and the stifling alienation, which make us who we are. 

Ommadon does not submit to the simplification of the horror and the beauty of existence into a world of positivity and negativity where we feel nothing but simulations of what happiness could be like or terror that sadness may disrupt our mass stupor. Ommadon embraces the dark, not as a manufactured rebellion or infantile inversion of stories of good and evil to which we must submit ourselves. Ommadon allows us to reinvent ourselves by destroying what we believe we hold dear but which only slows our steps. Ommadon is for those who know that in fearing death, one fears life, sleepwalking through life, waiting to die. 

Ommadon is for those who know that only in facing and loving death can you live freely. Ommadon is the world and the world is Ommadon.


RECORDED BY OMMADON

MASTERED BY BILLY ANDERSON

ARTWORK BY TIMO KETOLA


"Events slowly unfold, occupying a compelling middle ground between the hypnotic amplifier worship of Sunn O))) and the barely moving leaden doom of Monarch! Riffs emerge from the gloom, shifting forms accented by gut-punching drums...When they finally lurch into a planet-shifting doom assault after what seems like an eternity of creeping dread, the effect is devastating"

THE SLUDGELORD


"They are masters at turning a long, slow song into something which transports your mind into a deep, dark hole. And just like walking in total darkness, you see things that aren’t really there. Or at least you don’t think they are. Either way, the experience is unnerving. But totally worth it." 

ECHOES AND DUST


"While other heavy bands can talk the talk when they say that their music is heavy but not follow it up, Ommadon really do walk the walk and only need to let their music do its far from insignificant talking. There is a sense of negativity and sheer nothingness that just can't be faked contained on this album and it sounds all the better for it. Turn on, tune in and let the harshness of Ommadon consume you, this is the sound of musical evil incarnate and for those that can handle it, enjoy the ride."

The End of 2015


2015 saw Tartarus Records chart our early journeys into heavy drone with the I-IV Tape Discography while GoldenMantra released an entirely new chapter, Empathy for the Wicked. We played with some like-minded bands who crushed our minds, especially Bismuth, Noothgrush, and Primitive Man.

In 2016, we will continue the voyage into darkness and release Ommadon, our heaviest and most disturbing offering yet. We will also tour with two of the most horrible of bands.

Face death, never fear life. Have a very heavy Hogmanay.

EMPATHY FOR THE WICKED


Empathy for the Wicked is our first release recorded live on an industrial estate in urban Northumberland encircled by the dregs of humanity. The first track was originally recorded for the cassette split with Horse Latitudes and Coltsblood which we played each night on our 2014 tour. During that session, we continued recording through the night and droned out the riff which became the second side to Empathy for the Wicked.

Mastered by Billy Anderson

Empathy for the Wicked is available for order HERE from Golden Mantra.

You can hear the entire beast at our Bandcamp page (PWYW download).

"As heavy as it gets...the prefect balance between noisy, gritty atmosphere and murderous sonic rampage...like meditation, but for all things evil"
The Sludgelord

"Ommadon are cartographing the surface of a dark, dark planet that the sun is unable to reach. They really take their time to construct their music, with the resulting sonic walls capable of sucking out all light"
Cvlt Nation

"When it's over, you feel as if you've experienced something supernatural; like you have seen things which you didn't think you could see, all through your ears. Almost as if mud pools could make music. Fantastic."
Echoes and Dust

"The lowness, the heaviness, and the all-round vibrations captivate you and suck you in. If black holes were music, this is probably what they would sound like.
