“Empathy For The Wicked” is the forthcoming new manifestation of sonic devastation from U.K. drone/doom twosome Ommadon, due out July 15th. This new album follows the suppressing doom of 2014 double LP, “V,” which earned a spot on Rolling Stone’s 20 Best Metal Albums Of 2014.
Levying just one rapturous track broken into two parts, “Empathy For The Wicked” was recorded live, mixed by Ommadon, and mastered by Billy Anderson.
In celebration of its impending release, today the thundering resonance of part one can be heard below. Originally recorded for a cassette split with Horse Latitudes and Coltsblood, during that session Ommadon decided to continue recording through the night and drone out the riff which became the second side to “Empathy For The Wicked.”
