The eponymous debut album from Sumerian youngbloods Bad Omens, based out of Richmond, VA, is now officially streaming online concurrent with its physical release.

The band has frequently seen itself compared to the UK's Bring Me the Horizon, with its sound borrowing heavily from the styles present throughout There is a Hell... and Sempiternal era BMTH.

These guys are very cookie cutter metalcore, but the vocalist is pretty good

Damn, couldn't leave the title as is, huh?

But yeah, this is basically BMTH 2: Oli still screams edition. Not super impressive, but great at times and solid overall. What is extraordinary is that the lead vocalist actually wrote all the music himself as a teenager.

The Fountain, Glass Houses, and Crawl, e.g., are well above mediocre. The song I linked above first was just for the laughs as the riff is just about directly ripped from Shadow Moses. These guys might wanna be on the lookout for a lawsuit for this one.

They've only played like a couple shows there since they weren't even a full band until after they got signed. Were at the Canal Club earlier this year:

If the album were actually called Sempiternal II, then sure. But since it's not, no.

These guys rip Sempiternal so well that I can't even be mad at them. Certainly better than anything off of That's the Spirit.

You seem to know them personally so take it up with him. He's said he wrote the album multiple times on various forms of social media.
