Official press release: Finnish melodic death metal act Omnium Gatherum has just signed a deal with Century Media Records. After already having signed the band with their latest album Grey Heavens for North America, Century Media Records is now going global and will release the upcoming albums worldwide. Guitarist Markus Vanhala: "We're very loud and proud to announce Omnium Gatherum signing to one of the leading legends in metal, Century Media Records! Last years have been really good for OG and joining CM tour de force is a natural next step on our path to limelight and glorification. I've known Jens and the good staff of CM many years and I know they're hardworking, honest and very nice people to hang out, so we're very much looking forward to this shiny partnership! We wanna send out our biggest thanks and respect also to Mr. Stefan Lüdicke and Lifeforce Records for saving us back then and doing a really good job for the band many previous years. May the force be with us all & many good evil things to follow!" Jens Prüter, Head of A&R: "It's already 7 years ago when we first met at legendary show in my 'live living room', the Turock Club in Essen, Germany. Swallow The Sun, Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum was the dream package for every fan of dark metal! We stayed in contact over all the years and I'm really happy that we now can complete the trio of this very remarkable night. The last Omnium Gatherum album 'Grey Heavens' turned out to be a high point of their almost 20 year long career and we all know that the band will continue to grow. I want to thank my friend and OG founding member Markus Vanhala for the trust in Century Media and I would also like to thank Stefan Lüdicke from Lifeforce Records for the great work on the last 3 albums!"
