Author Notes

This is the most epic release I’ve ever done, over 7 minutes of pure punk. These were originally 2 separate songs, but I decided to make them into a single song as Omission transitioned perfectly into Baphomet, something I tried (and hopefully succeeded) to visualize in the venue.Omission, by all accounts, is a metal masterpiece, full of dramatic moments, the song’s first guitar solo and just great on all instruments, starting off with that rocking bass riff. The transition into Baphomet (an instrumental) feels like you’re descending into hell, something that they’ve encapsulated with the song title. Originally it had lyrics, but they were disturbing; I imagine that’s why they were left on the cutting room floor. Most of it is calm, save for a few dramatic vamps and the main riffs. The second guitar solo, however, is very discordant and off-kilter, so good luck on FC’ing that. Baphomet ends with a very loud outro riff as the drums go wild before capping it off with long, monotone sustains from the guitar, very similar to Head to Wall’s outro. This is, by far, one of my favorite songs from the album, and I hope you enjoy it as well!
