5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
BUY THIS!!
Buy it now, and if you can't buy it now, pre-order it!
Three new songs from one of the UK's finest, most underrated bands, each representing a continuation of the more melodic side shown on previous album Arc' Tan Gent.

Three new songs from one of the UK's finest, most underrated bands, each representing a continuation of the more melodic side shown on previous album Arc' Tan Gent.
Orchid Frequency is an outtake from a previous album which should in all honesty have never been left off. One of the strongest songs this band has ever written, it builds slowly throughout to reach an incredible crescendo...better than 99% of the music currently being written, it would be the best on here if it wasnt for...
Binary101 comes from Arc Tan Gent, and is possibly the best song in their arsenal...it always sounded better live and is enhanced here by the set closing jam.
This package is rounded off by the bands two promo videos, Tat Twam Asi (which you've probably not seen on MTV2) and newie Amnesia (which you've not seen anywhere! EVER!!)
You need to get this EP, you will love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The final release from the most underated band in Britain., 29 May 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Omega (Audio CD)
When I heard "Arc Tan Gent" I was immediately drawn into It's sheer diversity and complexity of musical talent. A piece of extra special music; a work of art. On CD they were timeless; live, they blew me away, yet they still never managed to break into the mainstream market they so strongly deserved to be in.
When I read they had decided to call it a day, I felt upset, but also angry at todays youth generation. Why buy a C.D. by a pompous, unimaginative nu-metal band like "Static-X" or "Hed planet earth"? why not look out onto your doorstep and discover the magical wonders of ET9?
Omega ends an era for the band many hardcore fans across the country. However, it does so in such a subtle and charming way, it makes you realise that the band are not bitter, they've just had enough of it all; enough of each other. Track one "Amnesia" uses a beautiful melody throughout with a pircing chorus, exprssing frontman Karl Middletons emotions at the time. "House Of Leaves" continues the bands melodic emphasis in the guitars and combines the percussive structures of "Tool" with the intensity of "Helmet". The third track, and my personal favourite ET9 track, is "Revelation". A masterpiece, consisting of off-beat time signitures, brutally heavy guitars and a well structured display of vocal harmony. The E.P. also features the previously unreleased "Orchid frequency" and a live rendition of the classic "Binary 101" to bring the epic release to a close. Absolutely impeccable. And to top it off their are two CD ROM videos for "Amnesia" and crowd favourite "Tat Twam Asi". If your a fan, buy this now. If not, I suggest you purchase this or "Arc Tan Gent" to find out what you've missed out on. Earthtone 9 R.I.P.

earthtone 9 are a band that fused racous riffs with blends of sheer melody and emotion,they were a band that felt fresh and essential in a time when a million bands existed that were nu metal,earthtone 9 were a band that sailed through their time pretty much unknown and underappreciated,such is life!arc'tan'gent was their masterpiece and the album that the band said they were truly happy with,it had passion,no boundaries and plenty of bite as well as the soothing melodies.

This final release is an ep and although its easy to mourn the band,its also easy to get drawn into the fact that this is a masterpiece as it is their final release,but in truth this is slightly weak as its quite generic and that wasnt what we knew of earthtone 9,it does however contain some great songs such as revelation which is a soaring,expressive song with a very strong chorus ,also house of leaves is very good as well,the remaining songs are slightly dull and showcase the bands more melodic sound but their diversity is certainly compromised in these songs.Still worthy for those who need to own all things earthtone 9.
