GIZMACHI set to release the “Gizmachi Take Over!” Virtual Release Party for Omega Kaleid, Available Tomorrow

Listen to Exclusive Full Stream of Omega Kaleid Today via The Pit
Modern metal collective GIZMACHI will celebrate the release of their long-awaited sophomore album, Omega Kaleid, out tomorrow, with a virtual album release party this Sunday, March 14.
The Pit is offering fans the opportunity to listen to Omega Kaleid a day early with an exclusively full stream, available now at
“‘Omega Kaleid’ is GIZMACHI in our purest form,” says bassist Kris Gilmore. “We held nothing back!”
Guitarist Jay Hannon comments on the highly-anticipated release, “Sixteen years. It feels like a lifetime has passed since we released ‘The Imbuing’ in 2005. So much has changed between then and now… With us, with music, with the world, etc. But one thing has stayed constant: Our music. Yes, it’s more focused and more mature, but it still sounds like us. There are many reasons why this record took so long to come out, but we’re not here to make excuses. ‘Omega Kaleid’ is GIZMACHI at our finest. GIZMACHI on steroids. Unrelenting, uncompromising, unadulterated and unfuckwithable.”
GIZMACHI’s return has been met with critical acclaim.
  • “GIZMACHI are back with a vengeance…” – Metal Injection
  • “The real magic here lies in the way GIZMACHI employ all kinds of jaw-wrenching polyrhythms and fucked-up riffs without ever sounding remotely like any other band, Meshuggah worshippers or otherwise. Perhaps a little annoyingly for the band themselves, they were making music this idiosyncratic and skewed 16 years ago too, but somehow it still sounds ahead of the game and yet weirdly timely and accessible at the same time. Not entirely surprisingly, the commanding, charismatic presence of Björn Strid has nudged everything up a few additional notches too, making GIZMACHI’s already nails-hard attack even more punchy, brutish and compelling as a result… Whether anyone was expecting it or not, this is how you make a comeback.” – Blabbermouth
  • “‘Omega’ takes the thick concrete riffs and rhythms of ‘The Imbuing ‘and pours on a healthy dose of mathcore and experimental metal, making their sound simultaneously more punishing and more dynamic.” – The Pit
  • “Big, massive grooves to equally soaring hooks are sure to initially hook the listener and draw them in, but the intricacy below the surface is what gives it the stronger impact over time.” – Dead Rhetoric
Omega Kaleid was produced and engineered by guitarist Jay Hannon and mixed by Mark Lewis (Devildriver, White Chapel, The Black Dahlia Murder). Pre-orders for Omega Kaleid are available at
The virtual release party is scheduled for Sunday at 3 p.m. EDT on the Johnny Beane YouTube channel, which also hosts the monthly “It’s Metal Wednesday! LIVE!” series, hosted by GIZMACHI’s Hannon and Brian Busam. Join the “Gizmachi Take Over!” at
“As the host of the ‘Gizmachi Take Over!’ I can sum up this show with one word…Celebration!” Busam says. “I could not be more proud of my brothers on dropping one of the best metal albums in years! Join us to learn what went into the making of the album, have a few laughs and prepare for a special guest you won’t want to miss!”
Founded in 1996, GIZMACHI quickly gained popularity among the local Orange County, NY, hardcore/metal scene. The band caught the eyes and ears of Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan and signed to his label, Big Orange Clown (a subsidiary of Sanctuary Records) for the release of their debut, The Imbuing, in 2005. From 2005-2006, GIZMACHI spent time on the road supporting The Imbuing, including high profile festivals such as Ozzfest and Rock AM Ring in Europe before going on an extended 16-year hiatus.
Fast forward to 2021 and the return of GIZMACHI with Omega Kaleid, scheduled for release on March 12, that showcases the group’s signature sound – a mixture of brutally melodic vocals, odd time signatures and epic guitar solos. The album’s genesis dates back to a 2012 Kickstarter campaign, which was followed by multiple setbacks, including recording and budget constraints and scheduling conflicts that ultimately led to a lineup change. GIZMACHI, however, blazed on, determined to fulfill their pledge and deliver new music. Without a vocalist for the record, GIZMACHI reached out to Strid, who accepted the band’s offer.
