Ominous Conclusions: With uplifting strange ambiances to crazy melodic guitar lines…..

Ominous Conclusions - The Outsider

Louis Nas states, «My new EP, The Outsider, inspired from H.P. Lovecraft’s famous tale, comes out on August 20 for the author’s birthday! The orchestral texture and general fantastic and macabre feel of this music, along with the dark atmosphere of the video, shot in a medieval castle, easily echoes Danny Elfman’s style. If you’re into prog metal involving multitudes of melodies, insane guitar lines, and/or elaborate orchestrations, then this music is made FOR YOU!».

Created by French guitarist and composer Louis Nas, Ominous Conclusions is a Lovecraft-inspired instrumental progressive metal project whose fusion and orchestral influences are subtly merged to summon the darkest atmosphere.

From uplifting strange ambiances to crazy melodic guitar lines, this music features all the great ingredients of its genre and more.

Your way out of every day’s platitude!

Are you ready to brave the darkness and traverse the beyond? Debauched solo tryst of French guitarist and composer Louis Nas, Ominous Conclusions is a Lovecraft-inspired instrumental progressive metal project with fusion and orchestral influences. Ominous Conclusions is please to announce another step out of the mundane and into the ether with their new EP The Outsider.

 These pessimistic harmonies will immerse you in the strange and unusual. Tumultuous and decadent, They will open to you the vistas of all that is uncanny, ghoulish, abnormal, horrible, and unbearable. It is the excavation of the most inconceivable lurking horrors the Universe should forever hide.

This delicious travesty was brought into being in 2019 with the release of the sordid first album, Prequel, that July. Composed of years of yearning, Prequel served as the catalyst for Nas to unleash his shadow upon the world.

The Outsider is a three-part instrumental piece built around H.P. Loevcraft’s tale and fully immerses the listener in the story, with only the notes to guide them. Nas comments: «I use instrumental music mainly because I’m not a singer, but also because I find the use of words too restrictive. I think that with just music you can really go into incredible nuances and details, and make the listener live the story you tell. Also, what’s great about not using words, is that every listener will picture something different in his mind while listening to the music, and thus connect deeper with it».

It’s progressive metal, but so much more. Packed with technical proficiency and profound storytelling, in one word Ominous Conclusions is… OMINOUS.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7159 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
