Formed in 2006 and reformed again with new vocalist Emil Kyrk in 2016 Egonaut return with their fourth full-length album “The Omega”, out on Mighty Music in November 2017.
The band was formed by Fredrik and Markus in 2006 and have over the years developed from being a straight to the point bastard between punk, stoner and hard rock into a supersonic Doom N Roll institution. Through the ages Egonaut has time and time again proven themselves a worthy live band during countless club-gigs in Sweden, several European runs and in performances on most of the major Swedish festivals such as Sweden Rock, Peace and Love, Putte i Parken, Metallsvenskan among many others.
After finishing off the touring cycle for the album “Deluminati” Egonaut realized that they had pushed themselves as far as the current line-up could take it and that some change needed to be done; enter new vocalist Emil Kyrk. With Fredrik liberated from vocal-duties he could now fully concentrate on the song writing and production side for a new album and in November 2016 the band entered Nordic Sound Lab to begin the creation of the new album, “The Omega”. Picking up where Egonaut left off “The Omega” takes the same doomy sound that the band utilized on their sophomore album “Deluminati” incorporating heavy doom elements, hard rock influences, ethereal synthesizers and catchy hooks to form a heavy ground for Emil to sing over.
The Omega is the first concept album from Egonaut and it tells the story of a seeker, trying to find his place in the modern world and what transpires when he finally finds it.
The recordings of “The Omega” took place in several different studios, all to achieve the best possible sonic image to match the songs and the lyrics and the album was once again mixed and co-produced by MRG Produktion. The artwork was provided by Adrian Baxter and the new logo by Costin Chioreanu, perfectly framing the release.
