Finally, 11 years after the first demo, ‘The Ancient Returns’ debut album was released in 2005, which was recorded in Italy and featured Gionata Potenti (Acherontas, Blut Aus Nord) on drum duties. Following this, two tribute releases to Bathory's 'Twilight of the Gods' were released in 2006 and 2007; 'Two Years Standing Proud in Valhalla...' and 'Three Years Standing Proud in Valhalla...', respectively. In 2014 Macabre Omen entered the studio to record the second album - this time with Greg Chandler (Esoteric) handling production duties and with Tom Vallely (Lychgate) performing drums. The album, released through Van Records in 2015, clearly demonstrates the project at its strongest, most epic and most diverse. Fans of Macabre Omen will be interested to hear the founding member’s other project, The One; in particular the 2008 release ‘I, Master’.
Nevertheless, The One is entirely different - evoking a very negative, self-destructive atmosphere, much more aggressive in style, and almost irrelevant to Macabre Omen. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
