OMEGA MASSIF is an instrumental post metal band from Wurzburg,Germany and were formed in 2005 by Andreas Schmittfull (guitar),Michael Melchers (guitar),Boris Bilic (bass) and Christof Rath (drums).They recorded their demo "Kalt" in 2005 and began playing shows with bands like KNUT,TAINT and TEPHRA among others.

In 2007 OMEGA MASSIF released their first full-length album "Geisterstadt"(which means "Ghost Town" in German).The album weaves a tale of ancient abandoned silver mines, treks through deep mountain tunnels, and forsaken boom towns illustrated through OMEGA MASSIF'S massive instrumental post metal.The vocaless nature of the music turns the focus on pure atmosphere, and OMEGA MASSIF deliver,layering the pulverizing repetitive metalchug with a sense of gloom and longing that becomes near-suffocating at times,but there are also lots of gorgeous ethereal melodies throughout.

OMEGA MASSIF are following fairly closely in the footsteps of bands like PELICAN,ISIS and labelmates YEAR OF NO LIGHT,but their mix of meditative,epic ambient post metal and

"Geisterstadt" is the debut full-length studio album by German doom/post-metal act Omega Massif. The album was released through Radar Swarm in June 2007. Omega Massif was founded in September 2005 and released the "Kalt" demo in December 2005.

The music on the album is a combination of ultra doomy riffs and more atmospheric sludge/post metal sections. "Geisterstadt" is a fully instrumental release, but the gloomy cover artwork and the dark and haunting atmosphere create lots of dark images in the mind. "Geisterstadt" directly translates to "Ghost Town" in English, and there certainly is a ghostly atmosphere about the album. It´s not an eerie type atmosphere, but I always imagine driving into an abandoned town, just walking around, trying to imagine how life was there before the town was abandoned. A lonely and somewhat despairing feeling, that´s somehow still a bit intriguing.

The material are well written and the four-piece act occasionally create a monumental and quite epic sound, but in typical post-metal style, they often start their tracks quietly and mellow, slowly building more and more layers on until a multilayered and epic climax is reached (best examplified in "Nebelwand"). For the most part it´s a very effective songwriting approach, but there are sections which feel a bit repetitive on the 6 track, 44:04 minutes long album.

The sound production is really powerful and suits the music well and all in all "Geisterstadt" is a strong release by Omega Massif. The dark atmosphere and the heavy riffs combined with the well sounding production and the tight playing band, make this a worthwhile listen even though it might not add too much new to the genre. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
