Omnium Gatherum Launch Music Video For Their Cover Of The 80s Pop Hit “Maniac”


Omnium Gatherum have launched their cover of Michael Sembello‘s “Maniac“. That song first found fame in the 1983 film ‘Flashdance“. Jukka Pelkonen, who fronts the aforementioned Finnish melodic death metal outfit, had the following to say about his band’s rendition of the track:

“This classic pop song is shapeshifting into the Omnium Gatherum style of modern melodic death metal blast. Here is something to dance and headbang to in summertime!”

Guitarist/vocalist Markus Vanhala added:

“I heard it from the start with this classic ’80s banger — that it had all the usual OG elements there. Our band just had to play this and turn this into an OG song! Get your upcoming summer spiced with this one and it’s gonna be a good one!”

This cover will appear on the band’s new EP “Slasher“, which will be out on June 02nd through Century Media.
