Though they weren’t headliners, their captivating stage presence and savage energy riveted me. Following the show, I immediately went home and listened to their entire discography.
Five times over.
America’s Most-Hated Boy Band
Based in Houston, Texas, Omerta fuses 90s metalcore with vaporwave and cybergrind
whatever those words mean to create a uniquely hardcore sound.
With a website still under construction and an enigmatic style reminiscent of 2010s tumblr-era “girlcore” aesthetic, Omerta is an up-and-coming brand bringing an air of innovation to the scene.
Released as the band’s debut album in 2020, Hyperviolence is vicious and vile in all of the best ways.
With a runtime of just under twenty minutes, the album passes by in a feverish haze.
The album’s multiplicity of styles serves as a testament to the band’s experimental nature. Each song has a distinct sound and draws from a combination of stylistic methods.
“Garbage,” the 4th track on the album, has clear contemporary emo influences.
This blending of styles makes each track particularly engaging.
Every time I listen, I notice something new.
Omerta’s most recent single, “Antiamorous,” is a testament to the band’s stylistic metamorphosis.
Aptly described as genre-defying, the 3-minute song is almost epsodic in nature.
A mix of metalcore, trap metal, emo and other niche influences, “Antiamorous” literalizes the term “listening experience.”
