An absolute mammoth of a record, “NGR” (The New Golgotha Repvbliq) contains over an hour of some of the most encapsulating and ominous funeral doom metal to come out in quite some time. Combining abrasive and dissonant riffs with a shroud of atmospheric and monumental church organ and choirs, the instrumental aspect of this record is already massive, which is only enhanced by Fedor’s forceful growls, belted with conviction and strength.

The music and overall atmosphere of Omination is derived from the last cathedral, preached by the prophesying wanderer. Originally started as a solo project from Fedor Kovalevsky (Vielikan, Severe Agony), Omination enters 2021 as a full band with Nessim Toumi and Zied Kochbati set to prophesize our downfall."
