Omnium Gatherum - Beyond (2013)
Following up on the phenomenal "New World Shadows," Omnium Gatherum's sixth album doesn't really show any signs of innovation, but rather continues with the tried and true formula that's made the band one of Finland's best. Per usual, this album is chock full of heavy, melodic riffs, tasteful keyboard work, forceful vocals, great atmosphere, and overall stellar songwriting. This is an extremely impressive album that, while it doesn't explore any new musical avenues, is thoroughly enjoyable and is easily one of the best melodeath releases in a while.
