Biography

Würzburg, Germany (2005 – 2014)

Omega Massif was an instrumental band from Würzburg, Germany and were formed in 2005 by Andreas Schmittfull (guitar), Michael Melchers (guitar), Boris Bilic (bass guitar) 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 disbanded in 2014.

    Hey, friends! Nice stuff here! I will definitely appreciate if you check out my band Nebulae Come Sweet (post-metal from Minsk, Belarus) and take a listen to “O”, a new song from our upcoming album! You can listen it online or download it for free here: https://soundcloud.com/nebulaecomesweet/3-o

    Very sad news. I will never forget these two concerts in Berlin: The one during that grim winter, a completely overcrowded small bar, the band almost coming to late due to a snowstorm, several strings broke, and still it was perfect. The second one where there was a blackout before the last song, complete darkness before they rose to prove that instrumental music can be political (indem sie "Unter Null" anlässlich der anstehenden Wahl der FDP gewidmet haben). I will never forget how perfect this band was live, how intense, as heavy as a mountain.

    They was supposed to come at Paris a few weeks ago, but the show was cancelled and postponed to another date... and this news, well, killed me in all ways. Good job Omega Massif to make people sad and frustrated.

    When I saw this it completely ruined my weekend before it even began. It feels like Men In Search Of The Perfect Weapon all over again...

    Not cool. Not cool at all. Hopefully a band like UR will carry that torch onward now - one of the very few bands I've seen that are up to the task.
