OMNIAVATAR - "Ego Death" (Interview-video)

Timo Komulainen founded Omniavatar as he began writing the story of "United Earth" in December of 2008. He set out to create an album that would tell a story of humankind united, foreshadowed by an extraterrestrial threat. As the compositional process of "United Earth" was completed at the end of 2009, Timo started recruiting musicians to bring his vision to life. Mikko Virtala (ex-Funeris Nocturnum) quickly proved himself to be the drummer of choice, being able to handle the wide range of styles Omniavatar represents. Mikko introduced Timo to Erno Korpelainen, who was chosen to lead the recording, mixing and mastering of the album. The recording of "United Earth" began with drums at Studio Musica in June of 2009. Soon after guitars were recorded at the home studio of Erno, followed by vocals. Johanna Vakkuri (ex-Ensiferum) lended her voice to Suzana, a female character in the story. The recordings were followed by several months of mixing and mastering that ensured the album would sound as colorful and powerful as possible. "United Earth" was released on 30th of November 2010. While received with some publicity, it suffered from lack of promotion. The band never became a full line-up capable of live performances and disbanded. In 2015, Timo reformed the band with Kimmo Pitkänen, Harri Moilanen and Pauliina Renholm. Together, they set out to compose and produce a follow-up to "United Earth". "Ego Death", the product of two years of work, was published on 30th of December 2016.
