Orpheus in the Metalworld

In support of album number three, Partum Vita Mortem, heavy-hitters Orpheus Omega have been busy playing shows since the end of July. Originally called Orpheus, the band was formed in 2008 as the side project of Chris Themelco and Joao Gancalves.
They have since established themselves as one of the country’s standout melodic death metal outfits. Partum Vita Mortem is a concept album which sees the band exploring the human condition through birth, life and death. From the band: “In an era where we often forget to experience and reflect on every moment we have, this album brings to the fore the struggles we all must face on our own journey.” The Loft, Warrnambool – October 9.
