Well, Well, Well...

First of all I like to wish you a happy new year!

I guess this album is a good start for the new year! So with pride I present you Omnipresence!
Omnipresence is the third album by the Russian band The Grand Astoria and today is the release date! So how fresh can you get it?
The Grand Astoria shows a lot of progression with this album. The first two albums were already impressive, but Omnipresence is really their masterpiece. With this self produced album these guys from Saint Petersburg does sound more Stoner and less Grunge. The guitar players have made a great development. These guys really know how to play his instrument and Kamille has some great vocals too! And the drummer and bass player can not go unmentioned, because they also have a great contribution to the sound of this album!
Compared to their previous albums, this album has more songs with an average length. The exception is the twelve minute lasting song Something Wicked This Way Comes. This song is an outstanding piece of work. Just as the other tracks are! From the first song Doomsday Party till the last track Stonewall, it are all killers!
Yet there are two things that I want to mention: The nice organ in Hungry & Foolish and the greatness of the song Mania Grandiosa.
The beautiful artwork is as the previous albums done by Sophia Miroedova. Take my advice and buy this album! Order it here: Enjoy!
