New York-based progressive modern metal quartet Gizmachi has revealed a new lyric video for the title track of the new album, Omega Kaleid, which was released last Friday.
“‘Omega Kaleid’ is the epic ending song,” says guitarist Mike Laurino. “I remember early on when the song was just completed, we pretty much agreed it would be the finale to the album. From the ending harmony guitars paired with the vocals, this solidified the closing of the album.”
Bassist Kris Gilmore adds, “‘Omega Kaleid’ is a journey that takes you down many emotional avenues. In the end it makes me tear up, has me looking like Gary Busey, on a bad day, but leaves me wanting more.”
Omega Kaleid is the long-awaited follow-up to Gizmachi’s 2005 debut, The Imbuing, which was released via Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan’s Big Orange Clown label. Produced and engineered by guitarist Jay Hannon and mixed by Mark Lewis (Devildriver, White Chapel, The Black Dahlia Murder), Omega Kaleid showcases the group’s signature sound – a mixture of brutally melodic vocals, odd time signatures and epic guitar solos.
GIZMACHI’s whopping 16 year hiatus was unintentional, as the band initially took a break to allow drummer Jimmie Hatcher to heal from a painful wrist condition, but was then faced with a myriad of setbacks. Finally, after scheduling conflicts resulted in a lineup change, Gizmachi called on Soilwork vocalist Bjorn Strid, who happily accepted the band’s invitation to help them complete the record.
