The Omega Thesis

Swedish death metal quartet Fuel For Nightmares are launching a new single, “The Omega Thesis,” exclusively with us at Prog Sphere. Stream it below.

Guitarist Johnny Nymark commented about the track: “The story behind ‘The Omega Thesis’ is a short, passive-aggressive, scientific and nihilistic viewpoint of the birth and collapse of cosmos and mankind.

Prior to the new song’s premiere, Fuel For Nightmares launched “Perception of Dismal” lyric video which, according to Nymark, was written during a home studio session and “was based on the chorus riff.”

‘The Omega Thesis’, on the other side, was written part by part during three or four rehearsal sessions,” Nymark said.

The album art for “The Omega Thesis” was designed by Federico Boss at Abstract Chaos Design, who commented, “It’s only what came to my mind while listening to the song non-stop in a loop.

Fuel For Nightmares will release another single “As the Flame Swallows” in November. Simultaneously, the band is putting final touches on a debut album, “Implexion.”

“We will try to do a few live gigs as well. The live nerves are starting to itch,” Nymark concludes.

“The Omega Thesis” is available on Spotify; stream the single below. For more about Fuel For Nightmares follow the band on Facebook and Instagram.

Polish Rock masters RIVERSIDE are releasing their seventh studio album “Wasteland” via InsideOutMusic as of today. RIVERSIDE’s Mariusz Duda checked in with the following comment: ”Today sees the release of an album, which for me is the finale of quite a painful journey. After two Lunatic Soul releases, this is the last part of a private trilogy about surviving and trying to find yourself in a new reality. In music, emotions are the most important aspect for me. All the rest is superficial, more or less polished, it attracts or puts off only those who think they are in the know. Thanks to all of you who have stood by our side, by my side for the past few years. Thanks for taking the journey together and for your understanding. I hope you’ll like ‘Wasteland’.“ “That day is coming I know that you are calling to me I don’t want you to make me wait too long It’s time to get on the road.“ The full statement to be found here: http://bit.ly/2xISJfQ Check out the three singles launched so far for “Wasteland”: “Lament”: https://youtu.be/4Wqlts7QWA8 “River Down Below”: https://youtu.be/ZS1crIkpnwc “Vale Of Tears”: https://youtu.be/001IMO53JwY Starting with the album release date of tomorrow, RIVERSIDE will be performing special acoustic in-store sets across Poland.
