Om is one of the simplest and yet most intriguing bands out there. Created by the rythm section of the Doom Metal band Sleep, Om are consisted of only bass guitars, percussion and vocals. Pilgrimage is what I find to be their best cd.

The four tracks are part of a single piece, that has been divided into these 4 "chapters" to make our lives easier. Everything starts and ends with the tune of "Pilgrimage". Unified Knowledge of the Godhead is actually my favorite Om song. Bhimas Theme is great as well.

If you like Doom and Om, this is their best album yet, not that the others are bad, but this is clearly a masterpiece.

There is no progression on 'Pilgrimage'. Al and Chris have not attempted to re-invent the wheel here. Clearly, the bass/drums duo work extremely well together so there is no need to add anything more to the mix.

Al's chanting goes ever deeper here, the title track soars as if a musical thermal. It is obvious that these two talents have a deep, deep affinity with music as a spirit, as opposed to being '2 guys in a band'. That is not the point with OM. These musings are made all the more striking with Steve Albini's excellent engineering work; he has really opened up the mid range here (let's face it, the low end takes care of itself with these two!).

A masterpiece. I expect a mind-expanding experience from them at All Tomorrows Parties Festival next weekend.

To me, Om have sounded similar throughout their career. Despite being a relatively new band to the doom/stoner hybrid scene, having established themselves under Southern Lord since 2003, Om have built a tremendous fan base and repertoire of records based around this similar sound from day one, though the production has suitably altered to fulfill the needs of the average fan who is definitely a fan of clear soundscapes. It probably comes as no surprise, since Om have released all three of their records within a close time period, the first coming out in 2005 and the latest in 2007. `Conference Of The Birds', which was actually my first taste of this band, is the only source of material I've covered by this American band and considering its similar approach to the slowly developed crossover genre, this makes `Pilgrimage' difficult to review. Its minimalist style isn't particularly pleasing in this sense, since there isn't much content for me to pick out and review. Reviewing Om is like reviewing the well established drone act, Nadja. It isn't as much about the instrumentation, or levels of experimentation but, instead, its more about the conjuration of emotions and imagery that allow the record to become memorable in any sense. A lot of bands can be reviewed as they are - bands that play a certain musical style, but not Om. This isn't music, this is a lifestyle. A religious and spiritual journey that will test your soul of its purity. Whether the bands members themselves are religious is not known, though the lyrics seem to suggest they are, since the concepts follow spiritual patterns.Read more ›

I saw Om play not two months ago at the Portishead curated Nightmare Before Christmas; All Tomorrow's Parties Festival. They were one of the bands I was really excited about seeing; to witness that awesome bass tone in a live setting. Seeing them perform made me realise how good they really are and how what they're doing at the moment is such a departure to anything else. Aside from seeing Portishead play live for the first time in 10 years, Om pretty much blew everyone else away. The fact that they were pretty sloppy, didn't really end a song properly; just stopped playing when it felt right and Al Cisneros' voice is definitely a weak point really says something about their performance.
That bass sound; Chris Hakius' awesome drumming talents; those massive riffs..... it was something to behold. This is why I was so disappointed with Pilgrimage.
The two preceeding albums were amazing and completely consistent. At Giza from Conference of the Birds is monumental and suggested at a cleaner & purer Om sound in the future. On Pilgrimage this sound is developed further; At Giza finally erupted in the usual wave of distortion and was an utterly cathartic experience. However, the opening title track stays mellow for it's duration. Whilst being pleasant it does feel lacking in the essence of why we listen to Om in the first place. Like if John Garcia from Kyuss started playing guitar instead of singing. Pilgrimage fades out after almost 11mins and reprises for another 4 as the final track fades out again; essentially going nowhere and suggesting Om could have dragged it out for hours.
However, when Al's massive bass tone finally appears on `Unitive Knowledge of the Godhead' it makes it all the more powerful after waiting 11 mins!
